We are just a local Christian Country/southern Gospel band out of southern Indiana. We've known each other for many years and have sung and played together in different groups and situations.
We just want to be used of the Lord and do our best to get the message out that Jesus loved and died for us and rose again as a promise of eternal life.
We have been given original songs that we think people should hear. We're not looking to break into the big time business. We just want to be a willing vessel.
The band is made up of: Sonny Kixmiller of Freelandville, IN (drums), Keith Pinnick of Oaklandcity, IN (bass guitar/bass), Paul Hulen of Bruceville, IN (baritone), Tom Spencer of Birdseye, IN (lead guitar/tenor) and Ronnie Baize of Edwardsport, IN (rhythm guitar/lead).
Sonny,Keith and Ronnie were in the Family Cirlce before their break up in 1998.
Tom, Sonny, and Keith were together for a short time in a group called the Five Smooth Stones.
In 2001 Sonny and Keith called Ronnie about starting up another group. Not long after they started practicing together Tom dropped by just to see if anyone was doing anything. That was when Circle of Friends came into being.
Paul joined the group in 2004.
Having to work around work schedules and church responsibilities the group doesn't get out as much as they would like to but get out when they can.
Where ever we can get to and still get home to make it to work.
We love it!
They are all special when we feel like we have done our best and we see the Holy Spirit move.
Southern Gospel, Blues, Rockabilly, Early Rock and Roll.
Peavey, Fender, Carvin, whatever sounds good
We could use a tenor , not necessarilly a really high voice, to allow our lead guitar player to focus on his playing.
There are 7 other songs on our cd, they are:
I WOULDN'T TAKE NOTHING FOR MY JOURNEY NOW
I'LL FLY AWAY
THAT'S NO HILL FOR A CLIMBER
LORD PREPARE ME (SANCUARY)
WHERE COULD I GO
We are currently working on a new cd. Most of the songs on it will be originals.
