In Faith, Gospel Bluegrass Band

Sunday, January 14th 6:00pm

IN FAITH is an all acoustic instrument group, playing and singing an array of Bluegrass, Southern Gospel and Ol’-Time Country Gospel songs.

 

The group is made up by longtime Southern Gospel singer and soloist Jeff Schroeder, from Panama City Beach, playing guitar and providing strong vocals.

 

Jeff has joined with seasoned Bluegrass performer, Rodney Outlaw.  Outlaw plays Bass Fiddle, guitar, harmonica and mandolin.  His wife, Kay Outlaw, provides the band’s solid rhythm on the acoustic bass fiddle.  The Outlaw’s residence is in Dale County Alabama, but they primarily live in PCB, Florida.  

 

In addition, seasoned Bluegrass banjo, guitar and bass player, Greg Youngblood, from Southport, Florida provides those hard-driving banjo licks for this group’s sound.  

 

Long time and well known Bluegrass artist, Scott Perry, holds down the band’s lead guitar duties.  Scott, who plays multiple instruments, is also an accomplished Bagpipe performer.  He has played the pipes for numerous events, many of which were in the PCB Florida area.  

 

The resulting sound produced by this all acoustic band is a lineup of happy, joyful, and inspirational Gospel songs.  

 

IN FAITH has as its main goal to bring back those Ol’-Time instrumental songs accompanied by solid Gospel lyrics with hopes that the listening audience will be encouraged to live

 IN FAITH.

Robert van Deusen,

a Philadelphia native, began his musical training at age 7. Precocious from a very early age, he started picking out tunes by mimicking the family player piano. Classically trained, he attended Whetstone School of the Performing Arts in Columbus, Ohio, graduating with distinction. Further studies at Capital University, Ohio State, Eastman, and Curtis helped develop the dazzling technique that became a trademark of his playing style.

After turning pro in 1976, Bobby toured the Midwest, playing clubs, piano bars and providing concerts. Moving South in 1985 led him to the Rosie O’ Gradys Dixieland Band, and gigs in New Orleans with Pete Fountain, Al Hirt, and The Dukes. He performed with the Delta Queen Steamboat Company for 5 years, perfecting his stride and ragtime styles.


Bobby has played all over the country with Hilton Hotels, including the Hilton Sandestin, where he was featured entertainer for 5 years. He has also been the ‘House Band’ for RadioLive, a production of WUWF Public Radio, for 18 years. Bobby has toured the country playing Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” with civic orchestras.

Lucky Mud

Sunday, February 25th, 6:00pm

Lucky Mud plays SwampyTonk and Folkabilly. The unlikeliest of combinations and the most descriptive form of Mud Music. 

This local husband-wife folk duo seems to always have new music up their sleeves. Their newest full-length album is a mix of folky, southern-inspired whimsical tunes.
