Info:Group 1 Crew from Orlando, Florida are: Blanca Reyes, Pablo Villatoro, Manwell Reyes (no relation to Blanca). The vocals are dealt with by Blanca. Pablo and Manwell are the two MCs.

Founded
Group 1 Crew was founded, when Manwell Reyes formed a bible study for local musicians three years ago and united with Pablo Villatoro and Blanca Reyes. The three brought their diverse styles of music together and created their sound.

Sound
Their urban style and line up is reminiscent of another crew: The Souljahz. Also a (former) Word Records band. Other comparisons that are being made are with mainstream artists The Fugees and The Black Eyed Peas. Our sound is fresh, funky and live, explains Manwell. We can perform in such a variety of styles - everything from melodic pop to Spanish R&B. We aren't limited to one specific genre.

- Wow Hits 2007 (2006) with the track: Can't Go On.
