The Stockdale Family Band

Sharing Bluegrass North of the Mason-Dixon Line

The Stockdale Family Band performs a combination of Bluegrass and Gospel with a touch of Appalachian music and comedy.  Father, Tim, and brothers Calvin, Charles, Jacob, and James often spend kitchen and farm chore time together singing their favorite songs and honing their harmonies.  

Their 5 piece band includes guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo and bass. Audiences find the Stockdale boys affection for people and enthusiasm for bluegrass music welcoming and infectious.

The family band has played for Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri, Pennyroyal Opera House, Ohio Valley Opry, community concerts, festivals, churches, parties, and schools. They have earned first place in 3 regional band contests and 2nd in a national “Youth in Bluegrass” band contest. Jacob is a Ohio State Fiddle Grand Champion.

With an entertaining and down-home style stage show, the Stockdales provide a bluegrass show that the whole family is sure to enjoy.

Suggestions- for  successful attendance and preparation for a Stockdale Family Band concert:

1. Invite other churches in your community or association for the concert. There are area small churches that would really appreciate an invitation to be a part of the concert.

2. Promotion is very important ! ! !

  • Request  band information and graphics to use in posters, flyers and bulletin inserts.  Please ask for approved band photos and bio prior to publicizing an event. 
  • If you have a marquee, announce the concert's name, date and time.
  • Social media outlets: Facebook, etc.
  • Newspapers have community and church events calendars online and hard copy.
  • Radio stations have community events announcements.
  • Weekly church bulletin inserts. Adding a bulletin insert about The Stockdale Family concert each Sunday for 2-3 weeks before the concert is a great way to remind your congregation to come and to invite others to the concert.
