B. B. & Q. Band (which stands for the Brooklyn, Bronx, and Queens Band), was an American post-disco band, which formed in 1979 and disbanded in 1987.The B. B. & Q. Band was a studio concept created in 1979 by the businessman Jacques Fred Petrus. After the success with Change in 1980, and also with Macho and the Peter Jacques band in the late 1970s, Petrus and his close co-worker Italian Mauro Malavasi decided to launch a new project, named after the three boroughs in New York that the band members came from. Fred Petrus pulled several musicians together of which New York session bassist Paris Ford(credited as Peewee Ford) and his musicians became the band.
