Holy Tornado

To see the soul of your comrade listen carefully to his music.

This is a small plug for Patty-Jo's cousin's quartet.

The family I married into is very large so they had to rent a hall on Christmas Eve so they could all celebrate together.
Always at the bench of the old upright piano was little Ricky Hammer, just pounding away to his little hearts content. And even though he hadn't had lessons he sounded pretty darn good.

One night an uncle of his came over and told Ricky to stop for a while. I told the uncle to leave Ricky alone because he was practicing to become a great musician someday.

Rick hammer is high tenor and his son Tim is baritone for THE CIRCUIT RIDERS, a very talented quartet.

Singing talent seems to run rampant in the Hammer family. My children all got their share. Patty-Jo, Kathy, Cyndi, Mike and Shawn.

You can hear a few of THE CIRCUIT RIDERS sound clips at the following URL.
I sure like how they do GOD BLESS THE USA.
It's goose bump music!

God Bless You Ricky.
