Gospel Thanks Given
Ron and Bari are the core duo and founding members of the contemporary acoustic folk band, THE ROADSIDE REVUE (see album 'Getting Out of Town' also listed with CD Baby). Since the late 1980's they have toured and played the Florida folk music festival and concert circuit, as well as performances in the Carolinas, and the Deception Pass Music Festival in Seattle, Washington. While gospel music has always been an important part of their high energy presentations, there has been an ever increasing demand from friends, fans, and family for an album dedicated to the music giving praise and thanks to our Lord. 'Gospel Thanks Given', their fourth release, is the proud result of these requests. 'Gospel Thanks Given' is a tightly performed collection of songs offering thanks, praise, hope and inspiration, played on acoustic instruments with a healthy dash of good old fashioned fun. The players..... Ron Litschauer: Vocals, acoustic rhythm, lead, and fingerstyle guitar, mandolin, bass, piano, keyboard. Ron has performed and recorded for almost forty years, and has appeared on stage with some of the finest musicians including a Florida tour with the legendary Tom Paxton. Bari Litschauer: Vocals, banjo, mandolin, tenor guitar, uke. Bari is also the founding owner of 'The AMP Shop and Music Parlor' a classic music store and service facility in West Palm Beach, Florida. Stan Geberer: Harmonica. Stan is a true harmonica virtuoso whose talents are always in demand. He is also one of the founding members of 'The Roadside Revue'. Tom Grose: Slide guitar on 'I Want To Sing That Rock and Roll' We appreciate Tom taking time from his busy schedule to lend his talent and spirit to this song.
