When I had a dream and a vision of starting an a cappella group 14 years ago, I never in my wildest dreams could have imagined a day where I’d even have the opportunity to write a note like this. Our only goal back then was to do what we enjoyed above all else, trying to figure this out as we went along, never giving up. It was a labor of love with no promise of eventual reward, backed only by our sheer desire to entertain people and bring a smile to their faces. There were many bumps along the road, many moments where we came this close to throwing in the towel, to being disheartened and disillusioned, to thinking this would never go anywhere and we were wasting our time. But, we stuck with it.
Fast forwarding to today, we have to pinch ourselves constantly to make sure we aren’t dreaming and that this is all actually happening. Can you believe that we’d ever be singing the national anthem live on ESPN for a Nascar race, or have a viral music video, or be on national television winning a reality show singing competition? We just passed another milestone, hitting 100k likes on FB – a year ago that number was 7,000. Our surreal crazy life keeps getting more surreal and more crazy every day, and we love it.
So to all of our friends and family who stuck by us over the years, thank you. For all of the industry professionals who helped us along the way and gave us a break, thank you. For the fine and talented gentleman in this group who choose to take a risk and join this crazy idea of being a vocal band with me, thank you. And to our fans, our blessed and wonderful fans, without who none of this would be possible or mean anything, thank you. We appreciate and respect your support more than you know – the fact that we can bring some joy and entertainment into your lives means the world to us.
From me and all of the guys, we hope you continue on this journey with us as we grow and improve and discover new ways to connect with you and bring more singing and laughter into your lives. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? We can’t wait to find out together!
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
