It's been over 2 years year since the newest version of Early Bird Special Band started playing out. We've performed in over 40 shows. Our song list is now over 80 songs. Art Massey (below Center) was added to the band when Steve and Kathy retired in 2016. Vern Lindsey (Left) and Allan Jenkins (right, holding his cool Micro Bass) round out the band.
Art sang with Vern in The Citadel Singers in High School 64-65 (see our B&W picture below). Art brings new songs
to EBS from Country & Popular to expand the 60's
Coffeehouse Folk music and Oldies that the original
band had played. New sound, New jokes (thank God)
and lots of Old songs you will remember.
Art & Vern went to Branson, Mo and teamed up with Tenor Ken Roy from their 65 Folk Music Group (The Citadel Singers) and made a 13 song CD that is now available. Call Vern Lindsey @ 865 803-8203 or VernLindsey@msn.com to get yours. See below for Song list on the CD. Incredible songs.
