HS opening for ELI 10/00

New Song
New Song is a mellow, rhythm & blues based acoustic band from the Toledo, Ohio area.

We play and sing sweet praises to God in local churches and coffee houses.

In the summer, we play outside as a rock band called Catfish Creek. We play city, church, and county fairs and church festivals. We will end the outdoor season this year at the Black Swamp Blues Festival and Contest.

Cindy O can sing with the best. She also plays keyboards and guitar. She has performed for many years with lots of styles and genres. She has added her own songs to the band's repertoire and we are looking forward to more original works from her.
