What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC? : Waldorf, MD

Atleast 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band that are related to persons/places/things/events that happened in the Washington DC area.

We are actively involved in trying to revolutionize the DC, MD, VA music community. We are so grateful for all the support we've received and, there are so many great people that have contributed to us in so many ways, other talented performers we've had the pleasure of working with...We are spoiled and loving it, and we don't take it for granted!

About Taylor Thomas: 

Taylor has been involved in the media since she was in high school back in the good ol' state of Indiana! From on screen TV hosting a regional sports show on Fox Sports, to sideline reporting for the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers & nearly years in the TV Commercial sales - she's seen and heard it all. Taylor has since taken all of her knowledge of marketing, sales, & dealing with people with her to her current career in DC as a Real Estate Agent on the #1 selling team at Compass Real Estate - The Mandy & David Team. 

Three interesting facts: 

1) I also have the self-proclaimed "coolest dog in the DMV." Our boxer-bullmastif, Murphy, has the biggest personality and I often refer to her as my "furbaby."

2) If anyone knows how big the Indianapolis 500 in Indiana is you might be able to appreciate this one: I was crowned the 2012 Indianapolis 500 Festival Queen & got to give winner Dario Franchitti a smooch on the cheek in the famous "Winners Circle"

3) I work on a show that promotes all types of amazing singers & I too sing - but only in my car or when I'm in the kitchen cooking by myself LOL
