Everyone loved this talented group of men. They played a variety of songs that we really enjoyed. We were so blessed to have them come to our seniors meeting. They showed respect to us all and kept us entertained we were all clapping and singing along and some even got up and danced a little. We had a wonderful time with this group. We will ask them back anytime they are able to come . They're musical talent was Amazing . We heard some jokes and some funny songs along with some gospel which we loved and some bluegrass and country. We were so pleased with everything we heard. I can't say enough good things about them.
