Fairhope Christian Church Presents Three on a String
Fairhope Christian Church presents Three on a String in concert Thursday, April 12 at Coastal Alabama Community College. Alabama's own Three on a String has now celebrated 47 years in the entertainment business, a remarkable feat in today’s fast changing society! The group’s longevity can be attributed to four fun, entertaining guys from the Birmingham area who all love to play music, have perfected their crafts, and enjoy sharing their music with audiences near and far. Fairhope Christian Church will host this hilarious and entertaining group for the community’s enjoyment on April 12 at 7 p.m., in Centennial Hall at Coastal Alabama Community College’s Fairhope campus. Three on a String began in 1971 with lots of bar gigs and one-nighters, eventually evolving into performances with symphony orchestras in several states including a nine-city tour with the Alabama Symphony, opening for Bill Cosby, Red Skelton, Barbara Mandrel, Jeff Foxworthy, George Lindsey, Ray Stevens and many more top stars of the day. Add in concerts for arts councils, Chambers of Commerce, Landmark Theatres and city celebrations, and you have a busy schedule for these veteran entertainers. “There is no feeling in the world like presenting our show to an audience that has no idea who we are and having the show close with a standing ovation,” said member Jerry Ryan. The group’s membership now includes Jerry, and three additional talented performers: Bobby Horton, Brad Ryan and Andy Meginniss - four entertaining guys who have learned their craft and enjoy sharing their talents with each new audience. Proceeds will help fund Coastal Alabama Community College's GED Scholarship fund. Ticket prices for the April 12 show are $25 per couple or $15 per individual. They are available from Fairhope Christian Church, 349 Fairwood Blvd., Fairhope, AL 36532. Call the church office between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. for tickets or more information. If after hours, please leave your name and number for a call back.
