They creJoker’s Wild was formed in August of 1990 when the original four members met informally at the Buckeye Invitational in Columbus, Ohio and harmonized together. The sound and enthusiasm of the evening convinced them to form a quartet to showcase their natural blend.

In their first appearance on the international stage, Joker’s Wild placed 10th. The next year they moved up to 5th place Bronze Medalists. In Calgary Alberta, Canada they became the 1993 2nd place silver medalists.
