On this page we will describe our background and philosophy.

Our Mission : To play music , sing and have a good time and try to entertain each and every one that is around us . And spread the Gospel through music with the talents God has given each of us .

We are a finely tuned Bluegrass / Gospel band from the NE Fla. and SE Ga. area and we pride ourselves on performing traditional music only . We only play in family oriented environments where everyone can have a good time . We all have at least 30 years of musical background , individually and as band members . We believe in having fun !!  And when it stops being fun , we will  find another hobby .

Below is a brief summary of our band.
