Guys Next Door

Guys Next Door were a pop group from the early 90s that not only had a record deal, but their own television show on NBC as part of the Saturday morning lineup.

The group consisted of Patrick Dancy (born on July 18, 1970 in Long Island, New York), Damon Sharpe (born on July 10, 1973 in Cleveland, Ohio), Eddie Garcia (born on August 11, 1969 in Los Angeles, California), Bobby Leslie (born Robert Leslie on July 9, 1972 in New York) and Chris Wolfe (born Christopher Wolfe on May 8, 1971 in Scio, Oregon).
In 1990, Guys Next Door's television show premiered on NBC which became moderately successful. In the same year, the group released their self-titled debut album.The group scored a minor pop hit with the song "I've Been Waiting For You" peaked at #42 on the Billboard Hot 100.
A promo single  "I Was Made For You" was released, but didn't chart. Guys Next Door became quite popular, having their own dolls, board game, lunchbox and even their own fanclub.

By 1991, the group's TV show came to an end and it seemed that the members of the group had went their separate ways.

Bobby & Chris dropped out of the public eye, Patrick continued to be active in acting and Eddie also acts & is a choreographer.

Damon Sharpe is a Grammy-award winning music producer/songwriter who has worked with artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Kelly Rowland, Kylie Minogue, Big Time Rush, Anastacia, Monica and New Boyz.
