Busy Summer in store

Welcome.

This is our Home page where you can get basic info on our music happenings. As you can see from our calendar we have been fairly active in our local area. We have been performing for various groups of interested listeners in settings where we can talk about our songs, tell a few jokes and unbelievable stories about things that are part of our lives. We have especially enjoyed our 'First' House Concert hosted by our great friends Fred and Ann First of the Goose Creek area in Floyd County. We also had a super supportive audience this past Saturday night at the Oak Grove Pavillion behind the Lutheran Church in Floyd.

Promoting and selling our recordings has been a priority. Thanks to all who have ordered and picked up copies from us directly at our programs. We now have them available in several places around Floyd and Galax. Its still a lot to do to break even on the venture. As an 'INDIE' (independent record label) promotion starts with the mailing of promo copies to radio stations and DJ's world wide who play our genre of music regularly. Most recently we sent copies to area stations such as WBRF-98.1 FM 'Blueridge Backroads' and WVTF 89.1-FM. The Sunday 2 PM regular show 'Back to the Blue Ridge" on WVTF will be featuring a segment on the Southern Mountain Melody Makers (Mac and Jenny Traynham) on July 1 including an interview with Mac about the songs and playing featured on the CD's. The show will be repeated at 6:30 AM the following Saturday July 7.

As for a final note, we just recently had to adjust our selling price due to several factors including increased cost of shipping but if you will notice the more you order the better the price per unit. Thanks to all who have help make our hole that we
are in less deep.

Check out our calendar and please come out to see us.

I'm sure you showed the folks in Port Townshend just how good the music is down on Ferney Creek is. I hated to miss you on the 16th in Floyd, but that was day one of my family reunion. I'll circle Oct. 7 on the calendar now & maybe a kamikaze trip to Floyd on 7/28.... NRJB gospel cd is in the final stages - just tweaking graphics, notes & such.

Enjoy the busy summer! I'll have to settle for hearing you sing on my stereo (in MONO!) for now...

Billyxmas wants to know.
