The band name is a mix of " jam " and "iroquai", based on the Iroquois , a Native American tribe. [8] The original band was Jay Kay (vocals), Toby Smith ( keyboard ), Nick Van Gelder (drums), Wallis Buchanan ( didgeridoo ) and Alec Moran (pipeau) [ citation needed ] . These are the founding members of Jamiroquai and were involved in the writing and production of the first album. The line-up of the band has changed several times, and the longest serving and now core members of the band are lead singer and songwriter Jason "Jay" Kay , percussionist Sola Akingbola (since 1994), and drummer Derrick McKenzie (since 1994). Kay is the identity behind the formation of Jamiroquai, deciding to form the band after an unsuccessful audition to become the singer of the Brand New Heavies . He has said that he has attempted to have Jamiroquai treated as a band.
