T H E B O Y Z …
In 2013, “The Beez” added our band “The Boyz” thus “Boyz and the Beez” were officially formed!
Tim our Emcee, Sound Man and Male vocalist loves Volkswagens and has owned nearly every year make and model, he does imitations and does Ethel Merman – spot on!
Lindsey “mama keys” loves the jazz music and so do her hands. When she isn’t cuddling with a cat or dog, you can find her at the local cafe sharing her latest pun. She thinks she’s soy funny!
Cogert our upright bass player. He never forgets a last name, be sure to ask him why!

I N S P I R E D B Y….
In 2011, Sisters Kelli and Wendi formed an A Cappella Swing trio (known today as “The Beez”). Kelli & Wendi inspired by their dad Fred Smith, who back in his younger years, during the time when this music was at it’s peak, was a professional singer. Their dad was on tv talk & entertainment shows as well as motion pictures. He was notably the winner of the 1952 Horace Heidt Radio Show (The “Americas Got Talent” of its day). Fred is 85 years old today and still inspires his girls with innovative ideas.
