Nate Carn and Armando Casteneda
Nate is a 14 year firefighter and currently works for DeLand Fire Department. Nate’s beautiful girlfriend Jessica currently serves on the board for the American Lung Association and despite not having the slightest bit of musical talent, he really did not have a choice when it came to performing. Nate has a passion for 1980’s hair metal, Hawaiian shirts, mowing the lawn, ice cold Miller Lite, and a really nice pair of jean shorts. In his free time, Nate manages an Etsy page that is dedicated to making and selling themed sweaters for cats.
Armando has been in the fire service for 10 years and currently serves as a lieutenant for Flagler County Fire Department. Prior to his career in the fire service, Armando joined the Latin boy band, Menudo, alongside Ricky Martin in the mid 1980’s. Armando performed three shows with the group before he mutually agreed to part ways due to creative differences. The separation was mostly due to Armando’s birth name, Lance Cumberbatch, not fitting the “image” of the heavily influenced Latin roots of the band. He was ultimately outcast. He legally changed his name to Armando Casteneda, and moved to Chino, CA where he met teen sensation, Tiffany. Armando found moderate success as a backup dancer during Tiffany’s “The Beautiful You: Celebrating the Good Life Shopping Mall Tour ‘87”. After the tour, Armando left the music industry for good and never looked back. In his free time, Armando enjoys collecting seashells and runs a podcast that focuses mostly on his opinions of Texas A&M football.
As firefighters, we are proud to participate in the “Lip Sync Lungs Battle” to help bring attention to this terrible disease. Since 2002, cancer has caused 61% of career firefighter line-of-duty deaths. Firefighters have a 9% higher risk of being diagnosed with cancer and a 14% higher chance of dying from cancer than the general U.S. population. NIOSH studies show the cancer mostly responsible for this higher risk were respiratory (lung, mesothelioma). We look forward to the opportunity to represent our respective departments along with ALL our brothers and sisters in the fire service across the country.
