Whistlestop specializes in hard driving traditional bluegrass and bluegrass gospel music. For special events, the band arranges its music for themes which would be familiar to a specific audience.
The group is available for a wide variety of musical venues such as festivals, shows, fairs, church functions, wedding receptions and other types of parties. Whistlestop can also perform instrumental string band background music for banquets and receptions.
All band members are experienced musicians. Ed Genois led and performed with his previous group, River Road Ramblers, for more than ten years at festivals and shows in Louisiana and Mississippi. Joe and Beverly Black often performed as a husband and wife duet, and also participated in other bands while living in Alabama, Florida and Tennessee. David Austin formed and led his own bluegrass band, Southern Express, playing in Louisiana and Mississippi. He later teamed with two other band leaders as Old River Express.
Whistlestop was an Association Band in:
Magnolia State Bluegrass Association (MSBA) www.geocities.com/magnoliabluegrass/
