The Jubilee will start back in August. The events are free and open to the public.
“Just Us is absolutely one of the best Bluegrass bands we’ve ever heard,” said Will Nichols, producer of the weekly music event. “The musicianship is superb and the vocals are first-rate.”
Comprised of Stacy and Teresa Wilson, Blake Atkins and Bj Taylor, Just Us features a unique blend of Bluegrass, Country, and Contemporary Bluegrass. They combine strong vocals, tight harmonies and solid picking. Each member of the band is a skilled musician and singer.
“Besides being one of the finest guitarists around, Stacy Wilson’s voice is as pure as country air,” continued Nichols. “His sound is reminiscent of the all-time greats like Keith Whitley. He plays banjo, mandolin and bass, and in addition to teaching music, he often performs in the Carriage Room at The Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge.”
But it’s definitely not a one man show, Nichols is quick to add. Every member of the band merits the spotlight.
“Stacy’s wife Teresa plays bass and sings tenor,” he said. “And their son Blake plays banjo and sings. Plus, on the mandolin is BJ Taylor, a gifted picker and singer.
Also appearing on the Jubilee are regulars, Southern Gospel singer Amy McAlister, singer-songwriter Elmer Bramlett, “The Wild Man” Danny O’Boyle, Emily Varnell, as well as the Cowboy Church Band and Chorale. Known as “The Gospel Gun,” Nichols is the announcer and a crowd favorite.
The Cowboy Gospel Jubilee is held at the Cleveland Cowboy Church in the Dockery Heights community at 3040 Blythe Road, off Dockery Lane, between Blue Springs and Blackburn Roads. Admission is free and a love offering is taken for the band.
