Mazarati is an American R&B band formed in the mid-1980s by former The Revolution bassist Brown Mark. Originally hailing from Minneapolis, they are now defunct as a group. The band's sole hit was a song called "100 MPH", which was written and co-produced by Prince.
Sir Casey Terry(vocals) and Jerome "Romeo" Cox (bass) were students at a Minneapolis' high school when they met bassist and fellow student Brown Mark, who gave them a lot of encouragement and went on to become famous after joining Prince's band, The Revolution. With Brown Mark giving them a lot of guidance, Terry and Romeo ended up calling their band "Mazarati" and hired several more Minneapolis-based musicians, including lead guitarist Craig "Screamer" Powell, drummer [[|Kevin Patrick|Kevin "Blondie Patrick]], rhythm guitarist Tony Christian, and keyboardists Marr Starr and Aaron Paul "Ace" Keith.
Mazarati's association with Brown Mark led to a deal with Prince's Paisley Park label, which released the Midwesterners' self-titled debut album in 1986.
The band continued after its association with Prince and signed with Motown Records releasing their second album, Mazarati 2 (1989), including the singles "The Saga Of A Man" and "The Woman Thang". Brown Mark and former Klymaxx-founding member Bernadette Cooper both worked as producers on this album which experienced little success; the distribution of the LP and CD appears to have been limited in quantity.
In 2011, Craig "Screamer" Powel and Marvin Gunn assembled a new band based upon Mazarati's back catalogue, "Mazarati Revisited". A debut show, tour and album are reputed to be in the works.
