Born in Canada, the four brothers moved with their parents and younger siblings to Niagara Falls New York in 1966. They were raised in a home that encouraged music. Both parents were active in the community especially the Niagara Falls Little Theatre. Their dad, Don was well known for singing the National Anthem at Niagara University games and their mom, Theresa is credited for teaching her children to sing. All nine of their children (6 boys and 3 girls) are musically talented and are actively performing and/or teaching music.
