He joined a local singing group from Lake Charles, called "The Repititions" singing bass and tenor for them. The group sang songs by popular groups such as, The Temptations, The Dramatics, The Delfonics, The Stylistics, and The Manhattans. They had a knack for actually sounding just like the artists."The Repititions" made a name for themselves by being the opening act for recording artists when they came to town. They opened up for Wilson Pickett (then later toured with him), Bettye Swann(tour), Betty Wright(tour), Earth Wind & Fire, The Chi-lites, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Rufus, Bobby Bland, John Edwards (Before The Spinners), and many more.
