Costume Party Leads to the Development of Successful Trio - Articles Surfing

A costume party might not seem to be the most ideal location for a highly successful musical group to come together, but that is exactly what happened in 2000 when Black Angus and Double D first encountered one another for the first time. Some might say that the meeting was providential, others might claim it was purely coincidental, but whatever it was, it led to the beginnings of a musical partnership that would clearly spell success. It was the spring of 2000 and the two had separately attended a cowboys and Indians style costume party. The entertainment for the evening was less than inspiring and featured inflatable props and line dancing. It did not take long for Daimon Downey, more commonly known as MC Double D, to become quite bored and decide to demonstrate his moonwalking skills using a plastic horse.

That did not appear to be enough excitement for him, so he snatched a toy flute from Angus McDonald and began showing off with it. That was all it took for the two to recognize in one another a talent that would lead them to develop a winning plan. At the time Angus was on the verge of beginning a regular Sunday night gig at the new club of a friend. Black Angus was already on track to work behind the decks while live musicians were scheduled to frontline the show. When MC Double D agreed to hit the microphone, Sneaky Sound Machine was clearly under way. By this time, it was the summer of 2001 and the duo had quickly gained a local following that had hordes crowding into the club on Sunday nights.

Within three short years, MC Double D and Black Angus made the decision to start up their own record label. Although recording labels had been hesitant to pick up the duo's first release, which was why they forged ahead with forming their own label, fans quickly latched onto it. Hip Hip Hooray immediately began to gain attention from local radio stations as well as club DJs. While it seemed that things had been going well, the duo did lack something and that something was a stellar vocalist.

Since happenstance seemed to be the rule of the day for the fledgling group, it only made sense that when they finally did come across the vocalist they needed, it would be a chance meeting in Hyde Park. To say the two stumbled across Connie would not be much of an overstatement. While strolling through the park they encountered her relaxing, singing, and strumming away on her guitar. Miss Connie, as she is frequently known, was not new to the idea of performing in a band, but chances are she had never performed with a duo quite as unique as MC Double D and Black Angus. Still, with the trio complete, it quickly became apparent to all three that what they had found in one another was spectacular. They immediately laid down the Funky House Music tinged track for 'I Love It' and began their journey to success.
