Toronto, Canada based Rhythm 'n' Blues/Soul Group that formed out of Jay Smith And The Majestics, Jack Hardin And The Silhouttes, David Clayton-Thomas' The Shays, Jon And Lee And The Checkmates, Bobby Kris & The Imperials & Robbie Lane And The Disciples.

This Rhythm 'n' Blues/Soul group started out in 1965 as Jay Smith And The Majestics but changed name to Shawne and Jay Jackson and The Majestics when Shawne's brother, and ex-Pharaohs member, Jay Jackson joined the group. Shawne Jackson had previously played in Jack Hardin And The Silhouttes; Fred Keeler was brought in from David Clayton-Thomas And The Shays; Drummer Wes Morris started out in Jon And Lee And The Checkmates; Crone had played with Bobby Kris; Cudmore had been a member of Robbie Lane And The Disciples.

They released several albums and singles on the ARC Records labels and their version of Arthur Conley's "Sweet Soul Music", on the compilation 'CTV's After Four' while "Respect" was found on the Yorkville 'Evolution' compilation.

The group split up in 1969.
