Performing along with McAdams included Don Buchanan, J. D. West, Jim Sigler, Andy Morgan, Henry Baxley. Other members of the Ole Fellows, Bill Barton and Eddie Hoggle did not attend.

McAdams said she read about the group in a newspaper article and learned she shared interest in the type of music they played.

The group plays throughout the county at five area nursing homes during the month. McAdams, a certified nurse practitioner, said she joins the group when her schedule allows for special performances and once a month at a Demopolis nursing home.

Last weekend&8217;s performance of the Ole Fellows was not their first time participating in a Revue show.

White said each time the group has performed for the Revue they have been recorded and will be heard via the radio all over the world.

Baxley, a band member, said approximately 40 local fans from Demopolis attended the dinner and Revue performance last week in Mississippi.

White said Demopolites actively attend the Revue performances.

White said the Revue would continue to feature artists from the Demopolis area, with the Decatur Street Boys, a Methodist-singing group from Demopolis set to take the stage on Aug. 24.

The Revue will also be held at the Riley Center in November.
