After several decades of disappearance, more than half plus years; aspire to be exact, there’s been an resurgent in some old school music that moves you. Back in the day in the late spring of May the latter portion of that month in the year1983 there was a band out of Dayton, Ohio called”New Horizons” who hit the top 40 Billboard R&B music graphs with one titled”Your Thing Is Your Thing” made by Roger Troutman in the album”Something New” Well, that was the conclusion of the followed by yet another single titled”Hunting For That Lady” taken in the bands second album”Gonna Have Big Fun” in1984; you can’t really say a 1 hit wonder as much as you can say a one miss wonder.
What happened to the Thomas Brothers’ professionally known as New Horizons? The band disbanded in late1986 and parted ways to pursue other professional interest. Lead singer Mark Thomas had the pleasure of traveling the nation and around the world with Zapp and the late Roger Troutman playing drums and singing background vocals in the late 80’s, and his younger brother Bart followed suit and now is stilling vacationing with Zapp as of now.
Mark also created two solo projects that were mere misses pka The Marc Anthonee Project in the summer of 1996 and in June 2018 he published a titled CD”Getta Know Ya” by M.A. Neither one of those projects hit the charts in any way. Well, you might ask concerning the other members of New Horizons; guitarist and lead singer Tim Abrams pursued other career options and played with different bands, while creator of the team Art Thomas Jr. stepped out of their spot-light entirely and is now an ordained Minister sharing the love of Jesus Christ.
Which leads us to infant brother Varges, Varges is the youngest of his sisters and plays keyboards, bass, talk-box, Melotica, percussion, lead and background vocals. He is a Producer, Arranger, Composer and Entertainer. He’s his first single”Give It To Ya” shot from his first forth-coming CD titled Destiny; that has been discovered on IheartRadio, Spotify, Pandora, and Jango.com music programs to name a few across the country and around the globe. The CD is comprised of old school, R&B, smooth jazz, Southern Soul, Steppin, funk and motivational music displaying his many aspects. The sound is attractive to young and middle age listeners’ who enjoy a wonderful groove with a soulful bit of rhythms.
