Quad City DJ's is an American music group consisting of Jay Ski (Johnny McGowan), C.C. Lemonhead (Nathaniel Orange), JeLanna LaFleur and Adam Martin who recorded the 1996 hit "C'mon N' Ride It (The Train)", a rap-remix of Barry White's 1974 "Theme from Together Brothers". The group previously featured Adam "DJ Harpo" Harper who served as the DJ and hype man. DJ Harpo was forced to leave the group due to complications with osteochondritis that left him unable to perform without substantial pain.
The two first partnered in 1988 in Jacksonville, Florida. They first were in a group known as Chill Deal. During this time they produced fellows acts Three Grand and Icey J, the latter being famous for the female answer rap to Rob Base's "It Takes Two" entitled "It Takes a Real Man". After Chill Deal dissolved, they reformed as 95 South to create the triple platinum hit "Whoot, There It Is". Their success led to work with Dis-n-Dat producing "Freak Me Baby" and 69 Boyz producing the double platinum single "Tootsee Roll".
In 1996 the two formed Quad City DJ's and produced the single "C'mon N' Ride It (The Train)" (based on a sample of Barry White's 1974 song "Theme from Together Brothers"). The song was very successful, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified platinum. They then produced the following album Get On Up and Dance, featuring the hit single, which peaked at #31 on the Billboard Hot 200 and also was certified platinum. The album also included the minor hit "Summer Jam" which peaked at #27 on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart.
