Welcome

BENEFIT FOR RIC STEINKE 10/16/15
 
We are extremely grateful for each and every person that showed up for Ric's Benefit.The attendance and the music performances were over the top, and it certainly helped to lift our spirits during this trying time. We appreciate all of your continued support, love, and prayers. This benefit was set up to help cover medical expenses, loss of wages, and we are now looking into a prosthetic. We certainly have high hopes of getting back to performing our music as well can.
 

 
We just wanted to let everyone know that Ric had a bad accident with a table saw in August, losing a finger and damaging the other fingers of his left hand. He is unable to play guitar for a while, hence, our jobs are on hold until rehab is completed. Please visit our blog for more information, we will try to keep folks informed with updates. Thank you for all your prayers and encouragement.
