Beggar and Co (also written Beggar & Co) are a British pop/jazz-funk group, composed of core members Kenny Wellington, David Baptiste, Neville 'Breeze' McKrieth and other guest musicians, specialising in jazz, funk and dance music. Baptiste, Wellington and McKrieth were the founder members of the group, Light Of The World, who were originally formed to play some jazz funk and dance music, but also enjoyed some success in the UK Albums Chart with their Round Trip album. In 2012 Beggar & Co released the CD Sleeping Giants which reached No.19 in the Amazon Classic R&B in the United States. As members of Light of the World they enjoyed some chart success when the singles, including "London Town", "I Shot the Sheriff" and "Time" all entered the UK Single Chart. Each of these songs were featured on various compilation albums.
At this juncture various members began to record in offshoot bands, the most popular being Incognito led by Jean Paul Maunick. Gee Bello formed a short lived group, The Team, and recorded a dance floor hit "Wicky Wacky/House Party", originally recorded by The Fatback Band and Fred Wesley respectively. Wellington, Baptiste and McKrieth formed Beggar and Co and experienced chart success, outselling the previous biggest Light of the World hit "Time", which they had also written.
