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 "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" Powell and Marvin Gunn assembled a new band based upon Mazarati’s back catalogue, "Mazarati Revisited". A debut show, tour and album were reputed to be in the works.
