    Biography :

    The Incas from Washington D.C. were organised in late 1956 and stayed together until 1959. The group was lead by Bob E. Lee, with Eddie Belton singing first tenor, Jose williams second tenor and two members of the original Ontarios, Clayton Roberts and Maurice Watkins singing Bass & Baritone , respectively. Before the Incas, Jose Willams from Washington recorded several titles with the Aztecs from Cincinnati, Ohio, under the name of Jose & The Aztecs who have one release in 1956, "Tonight" b/w "Rose" on the now defunct Echo label out of Cincinnati, Ohio. The Incas patterned themselves after the Dells and strove for a beautifully polished sound with can be evidenced on their recordings. The Incas will unfortunately not have a disc released before 1976 by the label Monogram.
