SILVERKEYS –- JACOB AUSTIN is a nineteen year old young man who has been singing for more than half his life. Jacob performs with his father David, who was in a band back in the old days, and he plays the twelve and six string rhythm guitars. He and his Dad sing at Jamborees, Opry’s, churches and Jubilees around Texas. Jacob picked up playing the mandolin and the harmonica to form a duet and accompany himself. They recruited Mama Liz to join them on stage playing the autoharp in the summer of 2006 and they love to play traditional country, ballads and the spiritual/ traditional gospel music, as well as some of their original material. In June 2008 the group released their first CD and Jacob is currently writing and co-writing with his Dad and Mom for the next CD.

ED “BUGGIE ALLEN” PEYER is from Columbus and was born in Wichita Falls, Texas and moved to North Carolina. In 1974 he returned to Texas and started singing country music. While playing one night, a piano player decided that his name should be “Boogie Allen” and his reputation has grown. With a vocal range that seems to have no end, he will reach out and touch you with your favorite songs. His talent has won him appearances with country greats: Alabama, Bellamy Brothers, Ronnie Milsap, Ray Price, Johnny Rodriguez and many more.

RENE & JUDY ESTRADA started the Joyful Noise Ministries when they met a couple at church and they both had a great love for old-timey southern gospel music. They have traveled all over Texas & Tennessee singing & playing for all denomination of churches, nursing homes, 4th of July parties, Christmas parties, weddings, funerals, and park anniversaries. The largest crowd was at the Hilton Hotel in Bryan with over 800 people in attendance. A lot of their time is volunteer, which they love to do, but sometimes the Lord sees that they get love offerings which keeps them going.

STUART & DIANNE RAEF are from Flatonia and retirement led them down a new path of singing and playing bluegrass/gospel music. Stuart plays the guitar and mandolin while Dianne plays the upright bass and the dubro. They play at music jams at Flatonia, Pearl, Moulton and Schulenburg. They enjoy singing and playing with one of the praise teams at Flatonia UMC as a well as singing at the neighboring nursing homes. Diane named her upright bass “Oscar” after her father who was a remarkable musician and Christian music writer. Singing gospels, bluegrass, country, old time hymns and old show tunes and songs from the 30’s and 40s brings many varied opportunities for them to share their love of music and harmony.

RANDY MAC was born in Pasadena and later moved to Mount Belvieu. It was during those years that he began to learn that it was fun to entertain. He practiced his guitar playing in the evenings and practiced his joketelling skills during the school day, which was not very popular with his teachers. In 1997 Randy was given the opportunity to start his own personal ministry which is called Livin’ It Up Ministries” and the family moved to Glen Rose. In January of 2003 Randy felt the lead of the Lord to help start a new church in the Glen Rose area called “Cornerstone Christian Fellowship” and he is the senior pastor there as well as a part of the Worship Team.

So be sure to be with us on Monday, June 21, for our FIRST GOSPEL SHOW.
