Florida Boys sing final concert tomorrow

It’s been previously announced, but just as a reminder, the Florida Boys are singing their final full concert tomorrow. Any readers within driving distance of St. Saba Texas, be sure to show up and send them off in style!

Their schedule also shows that they’ll be keeping two scheduled dates in Knoxville next month, perhaps (hopefully? hint, hint?) to record a live video. They’ll also be giving their final farewell appearance at NQC–something I’m really looking forward to seeing.

But the fact still remains that, with the exception of those special performances, the Florida Boys’ end sixty years of continuously being on the road tomorrow. I wish them the best as they retire and go on to other ventures–and for Les, Darrell, and Glen, a well-earned rest.

Southern Gospel has been bettered immeasurably by their sixty years of faithfulness. Adieu.
