The band has released 7 CDs and plays over 100 dates a year throughout the country.

The appeal of The Confidentials is largely due not only to the diverse make-up of the band, but also to the musical accomplishments of each member Stan Spurgeon on vocals, Steve Spurgeon on vocals and rhythmic guitar, Jim Eddy on lead guitar, Ricky Williams on bass guitar, Bill Nanson on drums, Michael Pujado on percussion, Davey Polson on saxophone, Bill Kearney on trombone , and Marcus Nunez on trumpet.

Lyrics

Send An Angel

Written By: Stan Spurgeon

Broken windows cans on the ground a ghetto bird flies above. Christmastime
ain't no time to be alone on the other side of the tracks

Mom's at work and theres a child at home she works on Christmas Eve
day .She gets home late plays here best Santa Claus and on her knees
she prays

Send and Angel

Should I say were from that part of town where Christmas Spirit just can't be found. And daddy's just a voice on the telephone its been 2 years but the kids still want him home!

Send an Angel

48 hrs

Written By: Stan Spurgeon James McCarthy Jon Proctor

Baby you been on my mind every minute of the day.
Has your love grown strong since I
been away.
Or was this call just in time to rescue your faith in love.

The miles and miles just can't keep me.
They can't keep away not from your love girl.
If I could fly to night I'd meet you in
heaven up above sharing love.
Woman i miss you can;t wait to hold wanna kiss you got to get off this telephone.
Tonight I'll be alone.
Wake up Baby Wake up
were lovers 48hrs away 48hrs way

I'm missing you girl I'm 48hrs away

I'm missing you girl I'm 48hrs away
