“An Explosion of Joy!” - D. A. Callaway, Event Coordinator, Silver Dollar City, Branson, MO

“Powerful bunch of enthusiastic players and singers.  Strong-rooted in faith and committed to excellence, I expect great things from their music ministry!” - Steven Mougin, Guitarist for Sam Bush Band, Owner/Operator at Dark Shadow Recording, Facilitator of Stephen Mougin Band Coaching

“I met this entertaining family band at A Bluegrass Christmas Festival in Raleigh. These young people stole the show and a little piece of my heart too!” - Amelia Ricci, Marketing Manager, Outer Banks 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

“This thing is on fire!” - Michelle Lee, DJ, The Bluegrass Borderline, WOBL 1320 AM and 107.7 FM, Oberlin, OH
