The "Calendar Girls", Jo-Ann McMahan and Trish Cleveland, met in the spring of 2003 on the set of “Sex and the City” in Atlantic City at the Taj Mahal Hotel and Casino where they were both working as background actors.

Jo-Ann had already produced the "2003 Girls of the South Jersey Shore Calendar" when she noticed Trish Cleveland across the room.  It was apparent by her all American beauty that she was a model.  Jo-Ann wasted no time in approaching her to be on her next calendar.  When Jo-Ann discovered that Trish was also a singer, she was doubly impressed.  They wasted no time in discussing a singing act, as Jo-Ann/s former singing duo partner of six years in Dallas for her act, ” Double Diamond”, did not make the move to New Jersey. It isn't easy to get a Texas girl away from “The Lone Star State”!

After Jo-Ann's move without her "other half", she decided to put her modeling and photography
production knowledge into full throttle, producing the “2003 Girls of The South Jersey Shore
Calendar”. The very day that it went into print, she met Trish in Atlantic City. It was true synergy.
The dynamic duo decided to get together and see how they sounded singing together. They knew
from the first note that the blend was great. From that moment, Jo-Ann decided to change her
former duo act’s name to “The Calendar Girls”.

However,  still wanting to keep the name “Double Diamond” close at heart, she created “Double
Diamond Productions".   Trish and Jo-Ann first started singing for tips on the Atlantic City Boardwalk
to polish up their act,  and the bookings soon followed with the calendar. Together they sold 6,000
calendars with some of the actual calendar models doing the promotions.

The calendars sold out when The Calendar Girls sang at a Harley Davidson event.

The 2008 Calendar Girl calendar is now in production, with Trish as Miss May and Jo-Ann as Miss

"It is going to be an exciting year!  We look forward to seeing you at our events and you can tell your
friends that you met “ The Calendar Girls” !! "   Yours in Music and Print, Jo-Ann Mc Mahan
