Connie started performing at the age of 5 in an elementary school musical, in her hometown of Vandercook Lake (Jackson), MI. One of her major influences was her paternal grandmother, Alice V Edinger. She played piano and sang for her grandchildren, later leaving her beloved piano to Connie. Her parents, sister, aunts, uncles, cousins, and maternal grandfather were also musicians and dancers, giving her a rich family history in music.She performed in her junior high and high school Chorus, Stage Choir, Musicals, and Marching & Stage bands, playing drums and percussion instruments. In 1989, two years after the birth of her daughter, Connie began taking vocal instruction from Broadway trained performers, Doug & Joan Barber, continuing for 7 years. She joined many local bands and performed in multiple duos to perfect her on stage skills. MAGIK, LUCKY 7, ELECTRIC SLEEVES, PERFECT TOUCH, UP OUR SLEEVES, CONNIES BRIGADE, GOOD TIME CHARLIE, BREAKING UP THE BAND. She recorded her first CD of all original music with CONNIES BRIGADE titled, MOTHERS NATURE. She has performed at Bethlehems annual Musikfest on numerous occasions, and has also been honored to have sang the National Anthem on Service Electric Cable TVs THURSDAY NIGHT AT THE FIGHTS on 3 separate occasions. Today, Connie continues to write and perform her original material. She's also been on 4 FORENSIC FILES episodes, and done a couple commercials.
