The New Deacons 

3/4/13: The working band name for the new collaboration forming including John Sterling ...on guitar, Geoff Holdridge on electric viola and mandolin, John O'Conner on bass, Jim Wilson on keys and guitar and Charles Mitchell on drums. All players sing, so it is impossible to name a lead singer which is how we like it! Stay tuned for show announcements coming soon...
