The Capitols were an R&B/soul trio from Detroit, Michigan consisting of Richard Mitchell (keyboards, backing vocals), Don Storball (guitar, backing vocals), and lead singer/drummer Sam George (d. March 17, 1982, age 39) that became famous during the mid 1960s. They are best known for the hand-clapping dance smash, "Cool Jerk" (1966), which was inspired by the then-popular Jerk dance craze. This oldies classic has been featured in a number of movie soundtracks and used in Cool Whip TV commercials.
