The Intruders were an American soul music group most popular in the 1960s and 1970s. As one of the first groups to have hit songs under the direction of writer-producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, they had a major influence on the development of Philadelphia soul. The four original members of the group were : Sam "Little Sonny" Brown, Eugene "Bird" Daughtry, Phillip "Phil" Terry and Robert "Big Sonny" Edwards. The Intruders are still going strong and performing today with members of the group that Eugene "Bird" Daughtry had formed together back in 1981,which included, Michael Singletary, Calvin Hines, and Glenn Montgomery whom kept the group alive and still is the leader of the group today. This group of Intruders has gone through many personel changes since 1981 with the return of Robert "Bobby Starr "Ferguson. Michael Singletary and Calvin Hines whom performed with Bird in the 80s' have returned with Michael replacing Bobby as lead singer. They also compliment the other singers in the group James Murphy and Philip Gay whom the both of them have long histories as Intruders.They did a great job on the 2013 Maiden Voyage SoulTrain Cruise and continue every year to do great concerts in California on The Pacific Concert Tours, They have also performed in Rick Watson's, My Husband John of McFadden and Whitehead stage play in Philadelphia at the Kimmel Center.
