Testimonials

 

?Inside The Carolina Opry was a great opportunity for my students to understand what goes on behind the scenes in a professional performance setting. Finding out about Gilmore?s road to success may have inspired them to pursue their musical goals.?

?Choral Director Heather Hammond, Loris, South Carolina

 

“Thank you for making such a fantastic show so available and affordable. We found the program “Inside the Carolina Opry” very enjoyable and informative. We were amazed at the amount of talent that arose out of small town dreams and determination. We especially enjoyed the open friendliness of Tangena Church and the members of ‘All That.’ The show was great!”

?Charlene Herrala, Windsor High School, Grades 9-12

 

“The Echols County Jr. Beta Club, parents, and I thoroughly enjoyed Inside the Carolina Opry and the Good Vibrations show! Inside the Carolina Opry was very exciting, because we got chance to meet and talk with two of the stars in the show in advance. We also got a chance to view the the auditorium, see the stage, and take pictures with the stars! The students were so excited and will remember this experience a lifetime!”

 

“The Good Vibrations show was out of this world! The students said even though the songs were from the “ole days”, they enjoyed them and the performances. The show kept you wondering what was going to happen next because of all the performers, costume changes, and stage decorations! Everything was fantastic?the special seating, the verbal announcement of the club, the performers, the comedian, and the show. We would definitely recommend you all to anyone! Thanks for a great ending to our visit to Myrtle Beach!”

?Lana Foster, Sponsor, Echols Co. Jr. Beta Club

 

“We had an awesome time with our time spent with you during the National Beta Convention. I knew my students would love it, but it was made even better by the time we spent with you before the Good Vibrations performances that night. I don’t think you could have picked a better group than ‘All That’ to choose for the interview. My students knew who they were because of course they had all watched America’s Got Talent. To hear their personal stories and the choices they had to make to get where they are was inspiring for me and my students. One of my students was so excited to take her picture with them that she was actually shaking. Thanks so much for everything you did for us; the tickets, the interview, and also helping us find dinner reservations close by.”
