The group members played instruments from the electric guitars to mandolins and bass fiddles and jugs and harmonicas. The children were treated to songs from the `50's and `60's on through today. The children sang and clapped their way through all the styles of music. The last thing the children heard was Doc Mock telling them to have a great summer and keep playing music! The men showed the kids how much they love to play music and how it fits into the lives of men in different professions.
