on Nov. 20... This is half of the audience... Here's the other half. We had an awkward time here. After the third song we were asked to not sing any more gospel songs. It was heart wrenching :-( The kids were very sad and so were we. The gentleman who invited us was feeling pretty bad and apologized over and over again. I told them we would not be back, after we finished this engagement. God is our reason to make a joyful noise and sing of His goodness and His salvation. I am sad that people choose to miss out on His blessings and promises. Nov. 21... It was dark before 6pm Crazy, huh? Too bad you can't see the front of this Church, it's beautiful. We were happy to be at Velda Rose again this year. They are a great group. Jacob and Philip, WOWing the crowd.
After we were done here we went out to eat
with a great friend of the family that is
attending ASU. She was able to come hear
us sing then fellowship for awhile at KFC.
By the way... Try the Buffalo Wings, they're
Nov. 22 we sang at Sun City Christian Church.
This Church may look familiar to some...
This is where our oldest daughter got married.
It is also where we took our picture for our latest CD.
Also, this week, Philip got his driver's permit. Third time for Mom to teach Driver's Ed. It's a crazy time... It's a nerve racking thing for a parent to teach a kid to drive. Just when you survive one there is another one waiting for their turn. In our case, we have three more to teach, after Philip. Please pray for us :-)
These were the highlights of the past few weeks... There were the normal things that go on along with all the fun stuff... School, Church, work, etc... We are enjoying this time of year. THIS is why we live in AZ... FANTASTIC winters... Ahhhh, the good life.
The Shuler Family Band is an inspiring family singing group with three generations of musicians singing a blend of bluegrass, quartet gospel, sacred hymns, country-western and cowboy music.
Paul Shuler, the grandfather of the family, began traveling and singing with his wife Bonieta in 1962. After moving to Arizona in the mid ’80s they started singing and recording with numerous groups in the Phoenix area. Paul blends smooth leads and harmonies, he plays mandolin, guitar and banjo. Bonieta (or Grandma) sings and plays bass fiddle and guitar.
Paul’s son Colin (who is an ordained minister in The Church of God) moved to Arizona with his wife Gerri and their six children in 2003. He plays guitar and saxophone and sings bass while Gerri sings clear sweet leads and harmonies.
Jacob is Colin’s oldest son and is a fantastic mandolin and guitar picker while his brother Philip is a mean bass fiddler. They each possess vibrant soulful voices and are often featured in our singings.
Lastly the three youngest Shulers—Sara, Megan and Thomas—often steal the show when they add their bright smiles and pure voices to make The Shuler Family Band a true family musical ensemble.
