Darin & Brooke increasingly demonstrate to enthusiastic audiences their increasing range as a vocal and instrumental group. Starting as primarily a gospel band, they have broadened their repertoire to include hard driving bluegrass, many ballads appropriate to a young couple in love, some country tinged songs, and their continuing commitment to their mission of spreading the gospel through their music. Don't look for lyin', cheatin', and killin' songs from this band, but if you want fine music professionally and enthusiastically delivered, listen to them seriously. Lots of miles on the road and continuing practice have made this band increasingly tight. New members Rachel Renee Johnson (sporting a beautiful new ring on her left hand) and Dwayne Anderson, a student at ETSU, have added strength. Ask your local promoter to seek this band out.

My pick for Happy Surprise band at Strawberry Park is Della Mae, which continues to grow and develop as an exciting and delightful group. Here's a video from their Friday performance.
