The Masqueraders started their professional musical journey in the late 1950s as a five-man vocal unit from Dallas and have been blessed to survive the ups and downs of the music industry. When the dust of their tumultuous musical career settled, three of the original members were still standing: Sammy "The Bull Rider" Hutchins, Harold "Sundance" Thomas and Robert "Tex" Wrightsil. The Masqueraders are one of the longest living groups in the history of R&B music and are a mixture of doo-wop, R&B, country, soul and gospel. They began their career in high school singing in talent shows and at various activities, as well as local churches. They are multi-talented singer-songwriters who can each sing from bass to soprano.
