We, like everyone else, have been waiting to see what is happening with COVID-19 . Since Saturday, we have 123 new cases in Oklahoma, therefore, we and the majority of the board have come to the conclusion that we are NOT going to have our show this year. Due to the fact that we have so many musicians and fans over the age of 65, we felt that we did not want to risk anyone's health. After talking to some of the performers, they are excited to know that they will be invited next year and that we all will be looking forward to seeing/hearing each other. Stay safe and healthy.

Very wise move, everyone it seems is able to understand a decision such as this. Hopefully, 2021 will be a much better year for all.

Thanks Beverly. Probably for the best. Make sure you post the next years show early enough for us out of town folks to secure a Hotel room. God bless.

I hate you had to cancel but completely understand. Playing comes second to so many others health.

Beverly, I think you made a very wise decision. The numbers for Covid-19 keep going up. Sadly there will be many more cases and deaths in the coming weeks and months. In time it will pass, but it's not going to just disappear and magically go away. We all want to play music again and get the Steel Guitars back up and running, but not just yet. Thank You for doing the right thing!

Thank you, Eddie. We hated to cancel, but the odds were against us with so many people in the high risk category. We just didn't feel like asking our musicians and fans to be there. After getting feedback from all the steel players who had been scheduled up to that date, and band members, there was overwhelming agreement with our decision even though they were disappointed that the virus cancelled another one. Lord willing, we'll see everyone next year.
