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 (he will finally get to do "Mrs. Robinson with a group) and does vocals, banjo and guitars. On the far right is Vern Lindsey doing vocals, folk banjo, guitar 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.
