Clark and Jesse Chambers were not just Seinfeld fans, they were fanatics. 7’s been a musician since the age of 5, when his piano-teaching father started him on lessons.  “By the time I was 15, I was giving him lessons,” he recalls. 

It was the news that Seinfeld had turned down $10 million an episode that got to Clark (“7”) and got him to write “Goodbye Seinfeld” for his wife and performing partner, Jesse (“Soda”).

“I don’t really watch television,” says the former model and hairdresser.  But for her Seinfeld is something different.  She tapes every episode, even ones she’s seen and taped before.  She takes the tapes on vacation.  She’s the one who got 7 hooked.

 “Now, our lives are either in the studio or watching Seinfeld,” she says.

The two have been performing and working together for over 20 years. Once they had the “Goodbye Seinfeld” song, it did not take much to get them the rest of their original repertoire to make into an album. Some were already done, some needed finishing up, but by the time they were done, they had a lot more than a tribute to their favorite TV show. They had an enduring album, part capturing a point in time, in part saying a lot more about themselves, about life, about their future than just that they had to fill in the time that Seinfeld had once occupied.

They met when 7’s sister gave him Soda’s card for him to check her out.  He made an appointment for a haircut, asked her out afterwards and have been enjoying singing and watching Seinfeld together ever since.

The two have knocked around with numerous bands over the years, but have had their greatest success just the two of them, their studio and their tapes.
