The family consists of Marlin, Becky and their 10 children, ages 5-22. They have traveled extensively throughout the United States and Canada, sharing in word and song through a unique gospel/bluegrass style.

Together they have ministered in churches, camps, prisons and many other venues. Providing their own instrumentation, they bring to the stage banjos, violins, a keyboard, mandolin, guitars, dobro, harmonica, and bass guitar. Their purpose is to glorify Jesus Christ in all that they do.
