We have finally released our newest CD, "Prepare Ye the Way of The Lord,"
Cece and I love to lead worship and led worship at "The Overflowing Cup" Coffeehouse in Beloit WI for 4 years. We did a mixture of old hymns, praise songs from the 80's, some of our original worship songs, and a few newer hymns and praise songs. I like the praise songs from the 80's because there is so much scripture in them. This CD will have 5 of our songs that we sung at Overflowing Cup that were scripture put to music. One of my favorites is "A New Song" from Rev 5:8-14.
Dan Lietha is the one who did the cover art for our newest CD. Dan is the Resident cartoonist for the Creation museum. He did a caricature of us when we were at an event for the Ark encounter, a full sized Noah's ark that was being built near Cincinnati OH by the Creation museum. It opened July 7th 2016. The caricature on the back of the CD was done by an artist many years ago at an amusement park. (You can tell it was a few years ago because I have hair.)
Here are a few of Dan’s cartoons:
Tom and Bonnie Lentz asked us to do a concert at "Christian Faith Center" in Bloomington IL Oct 6th 2017. Tom took these excellent pictures inside the church. I took the one of the outside of the building. Thank you Tom and Bonnie and thank you Christian Faith Church.
We did a concert Sat evening Sept 16th and did a worship set Sunday evening Sept 19th at The Overflowing Cup Coffeehouse in Beloit Wi. We miss playing there. For several years before we moved to KY we used to do the worship every Sunday evening and do occasional concerts on Saturday evenings. We miss the worship, the concerts, and the people. Thanks Dave and Diana for inviting us back.

I won the instrumental division for the Kentucky Opry talent search on April 22nd playing "Ols Rugged Cross" with the Kentucky Opry Band. I always enjoy playing with them. They are some very talented musicians. That's Angela Alton on piano and Steve Helm on steel.

We won the Senior division (over 39 and we're definitely over 39) Feb 27th 2017 with "Put The Past Behind You and Start Over". I thought we performed "The Duct Tape Song" better but we didn't win that time.
We played "The Duct Tape Song" at the Kentucky Opry Talent Search Feb 4th 2017. That's Angela Alton playing the piano. She has been blind from birth and is a superb musician. She had never heard this song before except once in rehearsal. She always makes us sound good.
Dale was nice enough to email me this picture of us playing at the etc Coffeehouse open mic Jan 13 2017.
