Welcome to theEncoreBand.com!
In the words of Lady Hawkins, Publisher of the Wakulla Area Times, August 2011:
"The Purvis Brothers Mike, Wendell & Frank - are the pride and joy of Monticello, Florida where they have made music together for the past 30 years. The brothers, proud of their rural heritage and up-bringing, learned early how to play and sing at church worship services and social gatherings. Their talent and performing savvy was soon discovered and they've become a tradition at places like the Monticello Jamboree, the Perry (FL) Opry and other popular venues in the Big Bend. More recently, the Purvis Brothers have been playing back up for Nashville star and Country Music Hall of Fame member, Charlie McCoy. The Sopchoppy Opry is honored to have the Purvis Brothers back for the August 27 show. It's always a special occasion when the Purvis Brothers come to town. Vocalist/percussionist Ronnie Weeks, steel guitarist extraordinaire Larry Bullock & fiddle champion Wayne Martin will join the Purvis Brothers for the show."
Encore plays a wide variety of musical tastes from oldies rock to country, from jazz to bluegrass, from gospel to blues. Soon this site will include a playlist of some of our music. We play mostly private parties and events, and we would love to play for your event.
