NEW YORK, April 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- New York City may be famed for Broadway and Wall Street, but Diane McKoy hopes America's largest city becomes known as home to her Bluegrass Gospel band, "Diane McKoy and a Small Few."
"New York City may not be the first place that comes to mind when you hear about a Bluegrass Gospel band," says McKoy, the band's leader, "but God put 'A Small Few' in my heart and I live in New York."
Although there are many Gospel music groups in the Big Apple, Bluegrass Gospel bands are virtually nonexistent, except for "Diane McKoy and a Small Few." There was one other. McKoy started it. It lasted 13 years before it disbanded.
The newly formed band features McKoy and two musician/singer friends: Steven Antonelli and Daniel Marcus. Together they produce Bluegrass Gospel and Country Gospel, music that mixes the Good Book with strings and harmonizing.
"Diane McKoy and a Small Few" is playing at various venues throughout New York City. The trio is making fans out of big city dwellers wherever the band plays.
"After one of our concerts, a lady commented to me that we should never call ourselves 'a small few' because it's a great three," says McKoy, "that was quite encouraging."
Now the band is praying it makes it big. And by spreading the word of Bluegrass gospel, it gets some more exposure.
