The Ball Brothers were in concert last night at Lincoln Christian University in Lincoln, Illinois. The groups consists of the two actual brothers, Andrew and Daniel Ball and Andy Tharp and Chad McCloskey. As expected, they wowed their audience with their silky baritone and tenor voices. They sang such Christian classics as 'I've been redeemed,' and 'It's all about the Cross.' They have developed some comedic interludes that had their audience roaring with laughter, such as: informing the audience that they have since had to lay off two of their brothers due to the costs of Obamacare. One of the Ball Brothers then began to play the comedic ham while the other played the deadpan part. He allowed his microphone stand (an antique one) to fall and so he followed, kneeling on the floor to be on the same level as the antique microphone stand, which again had the audience laughing at their comedy act deftly inserted into the concert.
They performed one of their songs in the same style as the quartet group from the 1950's, The Lettermen. The smooth delivery of their songs reminds the listener of these famous singing groups. Their album, 'Breakthrough' has been their recording company's #1 CD and they will soon be recording a new CD this summer. Whether you listen to the Ball Brothers live in concert or listening to one of their CD's, you've signed up to enjoy a musical treat.
