The Shady Grove Band has been working for colleges and universities since 1981. Ideal for evening concerts as well as outdoor events, the band is enjoying an ever-increasing college clientele. The members of The Shady Grove Band are energetic performers and their lively, contemporary approach to acoustic music is perfect for so many campus functions. Member institutions of the National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) should be on the lookout for this band at future conferences.

"Toe tappin' and knee-slappin' Shady Grove's bluegrass sounds are a favorite of Clemson students."
      Margaret Hooks, Student Activities Chairman, Clemson University, South Carolina

"I can say without a fear of contradiction that we have never had a croup on campus more professional or better received by the student body, faculty, administrators, and guests than Shady Grove."
      H.C. Evans, President, Lees-McRae College, North Carolina

"The audience reaction to your performance has been extraordinary ...I have rarely seen an audience in recent years that enjoyed a performance so much."
      Dick Burnhardt, Performing Arts Series, Southeastern Community College

"We greatly appreciated and enjoyed your performance. Everyone I've talked to said it was a terrific show! Even our President, Dr. Brooke, sent a message expressing his pleasure in the quality of your group."
      Judy Griffin, Student Union, Columbus College, Georgia

"Shady Grove provided first-rate entertainment, got the pig pickin' crowd off their feet to spontaneously square dance, appealed to little children, college students, and adults alike. The members of the band were amiable and very easy to work with."
      Nancy Bolish, Program Advisor Carolina Union, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
