They worked for a year and half to create the first demo CD, then life happened. After a seven year hiatus and the wonderful addition of Amy, Alfred co-produced the New York Concert Reading of STANDBY at the American Theatre of Actors in 2011. This included the cast recording of the soundtrack currently available on iTunes.
