According to promotional material, the twin brothers “have been thrilling audiences since they were 16 with their excellent singing and uncanny comical timing.”

“This promises to be the most entertaining program of the year,” commented event Chair Janet Sharpe.

Members of the guild’s entertainment committee involved in planning also incude LeRoy Sharpe, guild President Judi Gaynor, Joe Buchmelter and Carlotta Jordan.

“The Ohio Valley Music Guild was formed in 2003 and is a nonprofit organization committed to the support, enhancement and education of our community through the presentation of musical programming and through the granting of scholarships to college-level music majors from the Tri-State Area,” Sharpe noted. “Our performances encompass many forms of creative expression, including, but not limited to, opera, ballet and jazz. These performances also serve as fundraisers for our scholarships.”

“The guild is presenting another form of creative expression this year through the presentation of a different genre, a combination of classic country, classic rock and comedy. The program is designed to provide family fun, education and a relaxing evening of entertainment, so make it a date night or bring the family,” she added.
