NFBA President for 2019

Mr. Ernie Evans

July 2019


  I can not believe that July is already on us. Summer is a time that many of our members travel north to visit family, go to festivals or just escape the heat. Although things may slow down a little with out door activity in Florida, the northern part of the USA into Canada is in full swing with Bluegrass festivals every where. This is especially a favorite time for touring bands because it is the time they are working the most. i encourage everyone who travels to seek out a concert, festival or a jam. When you do, please share our mission with our friends and music family to the north. It doesn't matter if they live in the south to become a member either, it still helps bluegrass. 

   As we prepare our functions for the send half of the year, please remember, for just a little over $1.00 per month, folks can help keep our music alive and continue the hard work for more than 40 years and the service to over 4,000 families to date. 1 dollar does not buy much of anything these days but it goes a long way today with NFBA.


   I want to congratulate our Publicity Director, Gabriel Acevedo for the great look on the EXPO flier that is getting a lot of attention. Our entire board of directors are  some of the most amazing people I know. This is a great time to not only serve as a board member but to even just be a member.  


   Speaking of the EXPO, we are thrilled to be hosting it at Twin oaks Park in Hoboken, GA where we as an organization are deeply rooted. Please put this on your calendar now and make plans. We need you there and I know the bands will be playing their hearts out for you.  .Hope to see you there.


Thanks again for all you do,
