Reviews and comments

An explosion of joy!”

— D. A. Callaway, Event Coordinator, Silver Dollar City, Branson, MO

Brings a lot of energy and fun to their performance! Look for this up-and-coming band to be on everyone's festival line up!”

— Cory Hemilright, Promoter, Outer Banks Bluegrass Festival

Amazing mix of innovative talent and love rolled into one great bluegrass band!”

— Mathan and Jill Holt, Promoters, Bluegrass on the Plains Bluegrass Festival

Incredibly impressive to say the least! Not only are each of them skilled well beyond their years on their respective instruments, but apparently, being multi-instrumentalists is a prerequisite for each of them, as well! I'm always awed by people with extraordinary talent, but when an entire family possesses that gift, well, it is almost overwhelming to take in. God has truly blessed this family and they in turn give all the Glory to Him. That's yet another reason to love them!”

— Kimberly Williams, East Public Relations
