American bubblegum pop band, formed in Mansfield, Ohio, in 1967.
Though marketed as a band, it would be more accurate to say that "Ohio Express" served as a brand name used by [a326096]'s and [a326097]'s [l630163] to release music by several different musicians and acts. The best known Ohio Express songs, including their highest charting single, "Yummy Yummy Yummy") were actually the work of an assemblage of studio musicians working out of New York, including singer/songwriter [a538470].
Several other "Ohio Express" hits were the work of other, unrelated musical groups, including the Rare Breed, and an early incarnation of 10cc. In addition, a completely separate touring version of Ohio Express appeared at all live dates, and recorded some of the band's album tracks.
