About Our Guest:

The story began in 1968, behind the walls of Trenton State Prison, when a young Reginald Haynes started a singing group. Little did he know then that the group he named THE ESCORTS would become a legend in their own right.

Like countless artist before him, Reginald sang on street corners, local talent shows and occasionally, in various church choirs. Then suddenly, although still a teenager, he found himself behind prison walls because of what he terms, "a stupid and foolish act." There are various ways of doing time in prison, says Reginald. " You let the time do you and become involved with an element worse then the most hellish of acts, or you can decline your surroundings and become involved in doing the time and turning the negatives around you into something positive and playfully fruitful.

Following his first love, singing, Reginald sought out three other inmates who shared his view of prison life and his lust for singing. Out of this simple act grew what was later to be recorded as a history-making event. THE ESCORTS were born and a Cinderella story began to unfold.
