Without Further Ado is descriptive of a no nonsense, get-right-down-to-it, approach to music. The band is comprised of five talented individuals who share a common passion for music that has something to say – music that requires a certain attention to detail to get it right.
With an ever-expanding repertoire that ranges from Crosby, Stills & Nash to Conway Twitty, from Big Joe Turner to the Eagles, from Emmylou Harris to Patsy Cline, Without Further Ado is at home on stage, and they make their audience feel at home as well.
