Andrew King leaves Dixie Melody Boys

Ed O’Neal announced today that Andrew King is leaving the Dixie Melody Boys to continue his education at Texas A&M University.

  1. Me too. He is one of the BEST baritones in the sg industry.
    Who knows, maybe he’ll start a group someday in Texas. Once you’ve been “bit by the singing bug”, it’s hard to quit.

  2. I hated to see DMB have any break up, Andrew King is a big loss. I heard the DMB a few months back and really enjoyed their presentation, sound and song selection. Andrew is an excellent baritone.
