Five People brought together by extraordinary circumstances have had extraordinary experiences since they first met. From doing backup vocals for Bruce Springsteen at over a dozen concerts, to performing for the entire cast and crew for the HBO award winning series, The Wire, these five people never know what will be next: including a last minute call to appear on the Emmy Award winning The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, who graciously declared after two segments: "no nicer, more talented people will you ever meet!"
The group went on to perform several more times on the iconic show, where fans voted one of their segments as the "Best Smackdown" of the shows 17 years of being on-air.
Other appearances include The Red Bank Jazz Orchestra broadcast live on NPR, The Garden State Film Festival, and the historic landmark rock and roll club, The Stone Pony in Asbury Park.
Joking that "we're the poster children for 'You Never Know", Carford is convinced that there are wonderful and mystical forces that guide us to place us exactly where we're supposed to be--and never forget to celebrate fellowship and community, peace, love, and charity.
In their first single release Wayfaring Stranger--a spiritual from the early 1800's--they put a unique Jazz-Gospel spin on this timeless classic, making it hip, smooth, and very cool.The song has made the Top 100 International Gospel Train Radio list, as well as the Top 75 International Country Music Association Radio Play.Plans are underway for pursuing more music opportunities, "because you never know".Wayfaring Stranger is available at amazon.com and other sites where music is sold.
Their remarkable story is featured in the new book: CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL: THE SPIRIT OF AMERICA.
