SUN CITY CENTER, FL
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 16 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 one of the younger kids 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!
This show is sure to be a sell-out, so concert-goers are encouraged to arrive early for a good seat. A donation of just $5 is requested at the door.
