Texas Rose

“Texas Rose” began as a duo…Sandi Marola singing, yodeling and playing guitar and sister Ginger Evans on bass and singing harmony. They began performing together in 1994 for Children’s Enrichment Programs and Cowboy Gatherings and Festivals in the west… TX, AZ NM and WY. Even once, Way out West, got to perform a few songs at the Honolulu Hilton… Both sisters had been involved in music since grammer school and have roots in Bluegrass music.

Now, Sandi lives in the Poconos and performs an interesting blend of Old Time Folk, Western Heritage and Swing and Bluegrass…real Americana Music, with her now sharing her original material in these genres of music. Performing as a solo to a five piece band with a number of talented musicians, “Texas Rose” has shared this Americana style music in PA, NY, DE and NJ, yet occasionally still back out west with her sister duo. It has been said “the memories brought back by some of these well known tunes is heart warming.” from this “Swingin’ Bluegrass Cowgirl”

Stained Grass Window

In the course of performing for as many years as we have we can look back and see two stages to our evolution. The first part was where we labored pretty hard to become good musically. While we still work pretty hard at that we’ve matured as performers and have now come to understand that what we provide is not just something that is musically comptetent. The fact is, only a minority of the people we play before are musicians. People come to have a good time, not to be music critics. Our purpose must be to provide entertainment, allowing the members of the audience to just sit back and relax to the music we make.

The Wallace Brothers

The Wallace Brothers Band featuring Lucky Pham on the Pedal Steel Guitar, is a group based in Pennsylvania. They have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with artists such as Ricky Skaggs, Rusted Root, David Bromberg, members of The Lemonheads, members of Ween, Bobby Bare Jr., Lucky Tubb, Frog Holler, Leon Rhodes, and many more, and have also had the pleasure to work with Robert Hunter, lyricist for The Grateful Dead. The Wallace Brothers derive their sound from traditional folk and country music and mix it with improvisational rock and roll. They are most known for their unique live shows, performing roughly 200 shows a year, no two shows being the same. Whether it be crooning harmonies on a folk song or a soaring pedal steel guitar sounding like it is straight out of Nashville, The Wallace Brothers honor their roots but still create a style all their own.
