“I’ve had the joy of hearing the music of the Medicine Ball players many times. They raise high the spirits of the crowd with their wonderfully tight harmonies, irresistible and energetic rhythms, amazingly broad repertoire and skillful musicianship. Their playful banter between pieces adds to the enjoyment of their performances. They are wonderful and a joy to hear. I hope that many others will have that joy.”
