The Labor Day festival is over. All had a great time. Next year's dates are August 31 - September 3, 2017. 

 

Oct. 16 and Nov. 20, 2016 Meeting & Jam:

Our meeting location, the Southwest Conservation club, is in the process of rebuilding after the April fire. At this juncture, the facility is not ready to be rented. Rather than finding a new location, it was decided to eliminate the October and November jams. We are hoping that the facility is restored by the January 15, 2017 NIBGA meeting and jam.

Your board will be meeting at a convenient location on those days at 2p at the Richards Restaurant 252 Frontage Rd, Columbia City, IN 46725. You are welcome to attend the meeting or contact us to have items discussed at these meetings.

Little Miss Country aka Wanda Lowe will be recording before live audience 10-2-16 at Bob's Barn Jamborees at 3 PM. The broadcast will be before the regular Sunday acoustic open mic jam 4 PM to 7 PM. Sid Rogers will be on lead guitar and Buck Ward on stand up bass.

Wanda and her siblings were brought up hearing the songs that her mother and father sang as a natural thing to do. As she grew up there would be eight of the family relaxing in the dining room together as her brother and father played for everyone's enjoyment. Wanda got her pretty voice from her beautiful mother but she got the powerful amplification from her dad.

She fell in love with the guitar three years ago and now wonders why she didn't pick it up sooner. It's taken the place of a hobby that she never had.

We've seen Wanda grow musically since she started playing here in the barn. It's been a good thing to see progress. To book Little Miss Country see Wanda Lowe on facebook.

No smoking, no alcohol, no cussing , no spittin', but smiling's fine.

Northern Indiana Bluegrass in Kendallville, IndianaThanks, Dave and Traci, for the awesome sound and lighting! Having great sound brings out the best in the performers, and it allows them to focus on what they do best, performing and entertaining the audience. Two thumbs up and our highest recommendation to GBS Productions.
