Well back in 2007, I met our first group member, DJ McNeil. It was at the school talent show. even though he was dancing, I heard him singing to himself and decided to compliment him. I met Chailzon Humphrey when I saw him audition for a singing event for the school and jus like DJ, I complimented him. Around the beginning of this year I decided to make the group Grand Staff, I got the name from the inspiration of all harmony groups, mostly Boyz II Men. Grand Staff ,in music, consist of the treble and bass cleff put together. for an all guy group is consist of TTBB (Tenor 1, Tenor 2, Bass 1, and Bass 2). We started out with six guys in the group, they were, Andre' Joseph, Chailzon Humphrey, DJ McNeil, Vaun Jackson, Moleek Simmons, and Alex Chavis. UNFORTUNANTLY, some of our members dropped because they had other business to take care of. That just left Andre’ Joseph, Chailzon Humphrey, and DJ McNeil. As soon as it was official that this was the group we went straight to the studio, which was set up in my game room. That gave us the name of our album. Grand Staff: Straight Out The Game Room. ONCE A GRAND STAFF, ALWAYS A GRAND STAFF MEMBER.
I met Latrice one day when our manager, Khaylah McAllister, told me that it would be a good idea that we have a female singer in some of the songs. Agreeing with her, i took her suggestion and viewed through each other's contacts and listened to many female vocalists. Sorry to say none fit our style we was looking for until Khaylah mention Latrice, who is also the sister of our wonderful Official Head of Public Relations. the first note that she sang had me going crazy and we could imagine her voice fitting in the songs. We then decided that she would also make another amazing group member. - (TOLD BY E FLAT AKA. ANDRE' JOSEPH)
