The last Saturday in October usually found us at the Bristol Road Fall Songfest in Flint Michigan.
The songfest provided some of the largest crowds we sang for including getting to share the stage with
Accapella, AVB, Echo, Ray Walker, and others. While Gene Collings started the event in the early eighties, Sonny eventually came to be the organizer as well as the Master Of Ceremonies. This footage is from 1990.

In May of each year we traveled down to Parkersburg West Virginia for the Ohio Valley College Sing (now University!) The Spring term was already done and the students were gone, so the groups would all stay in the dormitory which was great fun and camaraderie. This footage is from 1991

For many years, the third Sunday in July found us at the Little Blue River church out in the cornfields, southeast of Indianapolis. Their forte' was their "Pitch-In Dinners". It was sort of a homecoming family and friends and they would pack out the quaint, old fashioned building with the tin ceiling. The acoustics were great! This footage from July 1991 was David's first trip with us where we introduced him our friends in Rush County.

Each summer around the end of July or first week in August we would sing at Spring Road in Westerville Ohio. (just outside of Columbus) There was usually a lot of good natured kidding and rivalry concerning Ohio State and Michigan. This appearance from July 1989 was no different.

June 1990 found us in Findlay Ohio one Saturday night singing with Gloryland, the Noise, and some others. Funny moments include Sonny running out of air at the end of the third song of the first half and how he recovered and zinged us. Also as we wrapped up the second half set with "Build An Ark", there was a BIG clap of thunder that could not have been better timed!
