The Kandoo Band 'Takes the Diss Out' of Disabilities

Williams syndrome has never stopped this crew of 20-somethings from achieving their music dreams.
As elementary students file into the Lincoln School gym in Garwood, the Kandoo Band is in a tight huddle, as intently focused as a team about to take the field for the big game.
Anne LeMieux Pocock, band manager and mom to bandmember Brendan, is pumping up the group of 20-somethings for their gig. When the circle breaks, all involved give a hug to singer/keyboardist Tori Ackley, who's mourning the recent death of her grandmother.
"They are there for me through the hard times, and I know they'll never leave my side," says Ackley of her bandmates.
