Brand New Day was formed in October 2013 when Joe Snider - Bass and Rick Stover - Tenor asked Bill Pupkis - Lead to sing a couple of barbershop polecat songs. It was then that Joe said he knew a baritone, Chris Rawls to join them as well. Chris had been a barbershopper for several years in Connecticut. Bill joined the Barbershop Harmony Society in Worcester, Mass. joining the Worcester Men of Song and later sang with the Racing City Chorus in Saratoga Springs, New York. When Bill retired and moved back to Maine he wasn't long finding some place to sing. As for Joe and Rick they have been with The Mainely Music Chorus for several years having sung for a long time in a previous quartet called " A Little Off The Top."

Brand New Day made their debut as a quartet in February 14, 2014 delivering Singing Valentines, a fund raising project of the Mainely Music Chorus. Their singing brings great joy to all their fans in the Penobscot, Hancock, Waldo counties. Their next performance was a quartet segment on the annual show of the Mainely Music Chorus where the audience got a kick out of their rendition of Coney Island Baby. Eric can hold that note, how long? Since then they have fulfilled numerous singing engagements such as a 50th wedding anniversary party, a family reunion, Bangor Mall with the Mainely Music Chorus and a recent chuch Christmas fair in Frankfort, Me.
