There have been many acclaimed bands which changed the landscape of music. Groups such as Sly/ The Family Stone/ The Rolling Stones/The Beatles/ War/Earth Wind/Fire//The Parliament Funkadelics & many more! However, out of the birth of the aforementioned groups, a fresh and exciting band emerges with the soul, funk, blues and quintessential essence of a universal melting pot.  Prototype “The Group” was taken from rap duo “Outcast’s “fifth studio album SpeakerBoxx/The Love Below. After a friend hears band vocalist, Ashley Lowe singing the cut “Prototype,” he suggested the band be called the same.
