plays C&W and lots more!!

Sundown is a combination of top Texas musicians that can happily expand from four to eight players. You will be amazed at the smooth and vibrant sound coming from the vocals and harmony combinations. They are the perfect combination for smaller venues or events with concern about music volume. But, if you want the powerful sound of the larger group, by all means, add the instruments of bass, steel guitar, and keyboards. Turn down the lights and get out there on the dance floor!
