It seems that she has been traveling some with them lately adding a sixth vocalist to their group, not just filling in Connie's part. I am not in a hurry to see Claude and Connie retire anytime soon. But I do think adding TaRanda to the group brings an interesting dynamic. The combination of her and Kim brings two of the genre's powerhouse vocalists together in one group. Kim even made the comment Saturday night that she enjoyed having TaRanda with them and trading off the high parts on songs.
Here's a clip of their concert below. I wish I could find one that had TaRanda singing with the entire group instead of filling in for Connie, so if you find one, I would love the link. What do you think? Would you like to see TaRanda join the Hoppers if not permanently at least more frequently?
