Once upon a time in the 1950’s, there were four guys (Sparky, Smudge, Jinx and Frankie) who loved to sing. They all met in high school, when they joined the Audio Visual Club. Discovering that they shared a love for music and entertaining, they got together and dreamed of becoming like their idols – The Four Freshman, The Hi-Lo’s and The Crew Cuts.

 





They rehearsed in the basement of Smudge’s family’s plumbing supply company. It was here they became “Forever Plaid” – a name that symbolizes the continuation of traditional values, of family, home and harmony. Although Rock ‘N’ Roll was racing down the fast lane like a candy-apple “Vette,” they believed in their music. Finally, they landed their first big gig at the Airport Hilton Cocktail Bar, “The Fusel-Lounge.”



En route to pick up their custom-made plaid tuxedos, they were slammed broadside by a school bus filled with eager Catholic teens. The teens were on their way to witness the Beatles make their US television debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show" and, miraculously, escaped uninjured.



The members of “Forever Plaid” were killed instantly. It is at the moment when their careers and lives end, that the story of Forever Plaid begins....

 

Singing in the closest of harmony, squabbling boyishly over the smallest intonations and executing their charmingly outlandish choreography with over-zealous precision, the "Plaids" are a guaranteed smash, with a program of beloved songs and delightful patter that keeps audiences rolling in the aisles when they're not humming along to some of the great nostalgic pop hits of the 1950's.
