For 6 of the last 7 years, they’ve won first place or been wild cards in the Sweet Adelines North Atlantic Regional competitions and competed internationally in Seattle, Denver, Honolulu, Baltimore and Las Vegas. Their CD, CROWNED AND DANGEROUS, has been hailed as a "vocal symphony with an ACCENT on fun and entertainment".
