Truth in Music
As many of you already know, I am Chairman of the Truth in Music Committee at the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
We have succeeded in passing a law to help protect you, the consumer, from impostor groups that are trying to pass themselves off as the real thing in live performances. We are passing this law state by state. It insures that, with very few exceptions, a member of the authentic recording group has to be in the group that performs on any given night.
We have now passed this law in 33 states, including all the biggest states and all the most important live performance states! Since we began this movement, we estimate that the business of impostor groups has been curtailed by about 90%.
We ask you all to be diligent and avoid seeing and supporting impostor groups!
