We were so honored to return to Wheeling in November 2012. The Wheeling Jamboree is now broadcast from the Wheeling Island Casino.
Such an privilege to be part of country music history
Jesse traveled from Pittsburgh to see the show
During this broadcast in January 2013, it was announced that Jim and Shelby would be the newest members of the Wheeling Jamboree!!! Sometimes we must pinch ourselves to be sure we are not dreaming. So humbled at being part of the heritage of the Wheeling Jamboree.

We had a great trip and we were so happy to have our fans and friends from central Pennsylvania in the audience.

Check out the photos.....
Here we are preparing to leave again on Tommy Cash and the Cash Crew's tour bus. It was a great way to travel to the Jamboree.
Gary was a great driver. We got a little bit concerned when he asked us to hand him Shelby's guitar because he wanted to sing on the bus too!
Here we are during our sound check at the Jamboree. Our show was broadcast from the Scottish Rite Building stage.
It was a beautiful old building with great architecture.
Here we are all dressed up and ready for our portion of the show.
We finally take the stage at the Jamboree.
These are our fans and friends who rode the two buses to Wheeling. I was trying to figure out who everyone is from the balcony!
Much to his surprise, we asked our bus driver, Gary Swartz, to do a number with us onstage.
A shot of us from the balcony.
This is what we saw to the right of the stage.
Those bright spot lights made it about 10 degrees warmer onstage.
This was Alans first time to perform at the Wheeling Jamboree.

Here we are! All ready to hit the road at 10:00 AM at Stop 35 in Mifflintown. Only four hours to Wheeling.
Here is our bus driver, Gary Swartz. And we thought we were in good hands?!?!?! Ha!! He's the only one we know who can drive with his eyes closed!
We are only about 30 miles out....and getting anxious....
And finally, we arrive at the Victoria Theatre in Wheeling. Only about four more hours until show time. Sound check is at 4:00.
Just after we arrived, our fans and friends from back home came in on the chartered bus. We are thankful to all of you for making the trip to be with us.
We are working with the sound crew to get the right sound for our show later.
Jim and Shelby do a pre-show interview with Dave Heath of the Wheeling Jamboree.
The bluegrass band, Cabin Fever, opened for us.
And finally, the time arrives for us to take the stage of the Jamboree. We were all a little nervous until we saw the faces of our fans and friends.
Here is Jim and Tim swapping licks...
And Kingy and Yogi keeping time...
And Joseph gave us a steady beat....
Jim and Shelby on Jackson....
And Shelby .....
WOW!! Our name in lights!!
After the show, Wayne Garman from Shippensburg, gave Shelby the Wheeling Cowbell that he bought on his first trip to the Jamboree in 1958.
And after it was all over, we packed up the bus and headed back home. Our dream trip to Wheeling had come to a close. Thanks for making this memorable trip with us.
