The band was formed in 1980, taking its name from a smoking pipe.  By 1981 they were a local success and in 1982 their debut album, Blasted, spawned two hit singles in Jamaica. "I Still Love You" stayed at number one for seven weeks, and "Good To Be There" broke the Top 10 the following year.

Their second album, Standard Procedure, was also popular with the singles "I´m Trying" and "Cant Dub". For three years Chalice toured Europe, but they never became as popular in there as in their homeland. A third album, Stand Up was released and scored another hit in Jamaica with the single, "Dangerous Disturbances".

When problems put an end to their period in Europe, they turned their attention to the United States and Mexico, and released their album, Crossfire.

In Jamaica the "Song Rivival Time" was a number one hit, but in the United States the song was not as popular. In 1988 they returned to Africa and went back to the United States, where they released their album, Catch It.

From 1989 to 1990 they toured Mexico, and in 1990 their sixth album, Si Mi Ya was released. In December 1990 they were invited to headline the first Mexico Sunsplash.

In 1991 a major change took place in the band, when drummer Phanso Wilson and lead singer Trevor Roper migrated to the United States. Roper was replaced by Dean Stephens and Wilson by Wayne 'C Sharp' Clarke. Their seventh album, Tuff Enuff was released only in Austria. In 1996 they disbanded.

CHALICE regrouped in 2006, ten years after their last performance at Reggae Sumfest. They returned to the stage in 2007 for the Symphony Under The Stars Concert in Jamaica. Since then, they have headlined events such as Air Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival, Rebel Salute, Calabash Festival as well as events in Miami, Fl and The Cayman Islands among many other concerts. They'll return in 2011 as the closing act for one of Jamaica's best known festivals - Reggae Sumfest.

They released Let It Play Tad's Records),( in October 2010, Let It Play is the group's first studio album in over 10 years.
