Mid-West Promoter's Showcase of Bands 2005

This event was a first for us. With over 35 bands represented, the sound of bluegrass music was everywhere. The main purpose of the event was for invited bands to perform for the promoters, who book over 150 bluegrass festivals in our area.

We enjoyed playing for the crowd, but more importantly, we met some unbelievable people. One very special family band (The Anderson Family), blessed us more than they'll ever know. Visit their website on our Links page. Their music brought a clarity to God's word and their testimonies made an enormous impression on our lives and music ministry.

We've captured a few photos below of the event. To view a larger version of each picture, just click on the link or thumbnail.

Before we left for the showcase,
we played for a fall church festival.

Then, Papa and Ashley
did some last minute chores.

Ashley had to take a quick "nap",
then headed to Springdale for the Showcase.
