Cedric "Im" Brooks came to the Southern California area in the late 90's to tour with the Carlos Malcom orchestra. After the tour had ended Cedric decided to stay in the area.

Needing a band to play with Cedric linked up with the young inspired musicians playing under the name "The Rhythm Doctors". For the next 8 months Cedric would rehearse, record and play live shows up and down the California coast.

With the sad and sudden passing of Roland Alponso, Cedric was called once again by his former band mates to join the Skatalites.  Cedric's short stay in California has left a mark with the Music playing on "Mad Dog" (named after the famous bar in San Francisco) where they would play live shows from time to time. Cedric Brooks will always be rembered by his music. -Paul
