Band Owner, Emcee, Lead Vocals
Candice Jernigan is native to South Jersey, but is no stranger to the big stage! During her younger years, her strong focus in acting, singing, dancing, and music studies helped set the foundation for her career in the spotlight. Through her adulthood, she has performed up and down the east coast- from major cities, popular shore points, theaters, and all stages alike. In recent years, Candice has fronted some of the top local cover bands, such as The Heartbeats & Don’t Call Me Francis.
Now the founder of her own band, Candice is proud to direct, emcee, and front the tri-state area’s ultimate party band, LEGACY. From the second the band hit the ground running, Candice has propelled Legacy to be one of the top-requested acts in the region, with feel-good energy that is off the charts! When she’s not onstage capturing an audience, Candice is proud to represent some of the region’s biggest artists and top-tier show bands at Ultra Artists. Outside of the industry, she enjoys spending time with her daughter Elly Francis- who you might even catch at a performance, busting a move on the dance floor! In addition, Candice has worked as a freelance studio vocalist, credited with Jive/RCA Records, Columbia Records, as well as Time Warner Cable and Comcast Networks.
