The United Methodist Church of Sun City Center
The United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, 1210 Del Webb Blvd. West, is proud to welcome back The Doerfels, a Branson-based bluegrass group, on Monday evening December 14th at 6:30PM for a special Christmas concert.
This veteran bluegrass ensemble is the Florida State Champs and has won numerous awards up and down the East coast for their lively and highly original shows. Originally farmers from upstate New York, this family travels and performs together for most of the year. The average age of the band is just 15 years. Having recently signed with a major record label and with one of the largest marketing agencies in the country, this may be the last time you’ll be able to hear them at a small local venue. Despite their youth, one Keys reporter has said about their show, “Seasoned musicians watched in awe….” The core band consists of the oldest son and leader TJ, 19, on banjo; Kim, 17, on the fiddle; Eddy, 15, on mandolin; Joey, 14, on bass and cello; and Ben, 12, on guitar. The whole family joins in on certain songs and adds humor to the act, making it an entertaining show for all ages. It’s not unusual for the baby to wander on stage and steal the show!
If you like country, gospel, and bluegrass, interspersed with a touch of blues, jazz, swing, and classical, you’ll want to catch this outstanding, young talented band! See why “The Doerfel Family is a force to be reckoned with.”* No strings attached!
“The last time the Doerfels were here at the church we had about 300 very enthusiastic fans in attendance. For this special Christmas concert, we expect a really large turn-out,” said Jeff Jordan, Director of Music and Worship Arts at the church. A donation of $5 is requested at the door the evening of the concert. For more information about the Doerfels, please visit their website www.the doerfels.com.
