Plair , a former public school music instructor who spent more than 30 years in teaching and performing. He later added his two sons to the group.

Plair has performed all over the southeast playing clubs and colleges, opening for such artists as Lionel Richie/Commodores, Mother’s Finest, Kool and the Gang and The Ellington Orchestra.
