THE SUGARLOAF MOUNTAIN BOYS BLUEGRASS BAND will give a concert at Bethlehem Baptist Church, 12898 Round O Rd., Round O, on Saturday April 8 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Admission is free.

They were also instrumental in the formation of The Congaree Bluegrass Festival in Cayce. Band members include Danny Creamer, guitar and lead vocals; Ben Wooten, dobro and vocals; John Barkley, fiddle and vocals; Rusty Zornes, bass and vocals; Craig Armstrong, banjo and vocals; and Reese Wooten, guitar.
