The newest version of the Early Bird Special Band includes Allan Jenkins on Micro-Bass (far left). Next to Allan is Art Massey who sang with Vern in The Citadel Singers in High School 63-65 (see our B&W picture below). Art has a great baritone and is our Lead singer. Next to Art is Bobby Wilson (holding the banjo) our newest member. Bobby will be adding a lot of Bluegrass songs to our song list and does vocals, banjo and guitars. On the far right is me, Vern Lindsey also singing and playing and herding these cats.
Art & Vern went to Branson, Mo and teamed up with Tenor Ken Roy from their 60's Folk Music Group (The Citadel Singers) and made a 13 song CD that is now available. Contact Vern Lindsey @ 865 803-8203 or VernLindsey@msn.com to get yours. See below for Song list on the CD. Incredible songs.
