Thanks to all who made the trek out to The Norfolk Tavern in Port Dover on April 6, where we opened for Rhyme 'n Reason's cd release party. The event was oversold and included members of our own Pineridge Bluegrass Club. A big thanks to Rhyme 'n Reason for asking us to be part of this special day!

So excited. R N R at the Brig again. I love the atmosphere in that place. Makes me think of the old days going to places in Toronto to hear Folk Music.
Just loved the video of the lady at Parkwood up dancing. Man, she was having a good time. That is what happens when Rhyme N Reason let loose!!!! See you soon.

Hope all is well.
I am glad you feel that way about performing at Parkwood.
It was us that was honoured by you playing for us on such short notice...
you really helped us out BIG Time. Thanks again.
As of last week many words of praise were still coming in from Parkwood sources
and our membership....
a few are:
- what a fantastic group of entertainers,
- they were Awesome,
- best group we have ever had at Parkwood,
- when are they playing here again?
- some of the parkwood vets that missed the show claimed
it should have been advertized more (next year maybe).
- great entertainers...I loved their music,
- never heard Bluegrass sound so good.
Also, on your website Rhyme "N" Reason at Parkwood there is a YOU TUBE
Video of Helen Kelly dancing with you...already viewed by many.
Due to the response I am going to approach the Legion executive and book you
again I will be in touch.
Take Care My Friends

Dear R & R members; I just wanted to let you know how much comfort I received from your Time Has Come CD as I drove back and forth from my home to Ottawa. My father passed away unexpectedly before Christmas and the rides were long. Your lyrics and music greatly assuaged my sorrow and reminded me of my father's eternal home with his heavenly Father. Thank you kindly and I hope to see and hear you soon. Marc B.

I want to wsh you a Merry Christmas and to all members of Rhyme 'n' Reason. Your performance at the Evangeline Bluegrass Festival was awesome. Just love the harmonization. Your band was also very popular among the spectators as according to the surveys, your band and the Bluegrass Diamonds were the two top bands at our festival. Congratulations on your new C,D.
Thanks for taking part at our festival and hope to see you again.

Take care of yourselves,

Good morning Stefan
Just a quick e-mail to tell you again how much I enjoyed the band,especially your banjo picking and also to thank you for the visit after the show.The seed is planted re the cruise in January,and I also dug out my banjo last night,needs some polish but surprisingly after all those years there was,to my ear,only one string out of tune.
Hope to see you in January.

Hello Stefan... thanks for doing the workshop at Tottenham...
Joe lives near us, and we know what a great guy he really is
under all that "other stuff"... glad to see him in the group!!!
Have a great season on the road... Thanks again! Jim Pepper

I just wanted to congratulate and thank you for the wonderful job you did on planning and executing this large undertaking. The volunteers and professionals alike worked hard and in sync to pull it off in harmony with the music. I've loved bluegrass music all of my life and attending this festival was like attending a preview of what heaven I hope will be like. You had some really good talent on the roster and a few of them really stood out and I'd like to mention them if I may. The Ducharme Family were a real pleasure and exciting to listen to. They emanated the joy, happiness and sense of family that can be found in bluegrass music. Secondly I thought that the Tebworth Brothers were priceless and that their DNA should be gathered up for cloning. Talk about refreshing!
Lastly but certainly not "leastly", the group that impressed me the most were the Rhyme and Reason. This group of seasoned musicians is in a class of its own. Their sweet sounds represent and illustrate what our bluegrass roots looked and sounded like and moreover, they are holding true to them. With great class, humility and dignity, they serve up a style of bluegrass music that gives me a tickle in my ear and a warm and fuzzy feeling like good medicine does. By the second time I had heard
them on Saturday I was left thinking that only God could have put this combination of musicians together.
Again, I congratulate and thank you and your team for a job well done and I look forward to attending again next year!

Thanks for setting aside tickets for the Aldridge show for us. We'll pick them up at Tottenham from you.
It would be a dream come true if the gang could drop by the 404 Wing after you are done with the Dan Joseph Radio Show. It's very close to where we are jamming every Wednesday evening at the 404 Wing and there just happens to be a BBQ going on there that evening. Our jam session IS the entertainment that they mention. I know you have to head for Nova Scotia the next morning but if you could spare a bit of time to drop by, it would be greatly appreciated. I doubt that this kind of coincidence will happen again when you are all in Waterloo when we are jammin' during the week. It's a good chance to show the 404 Wing members why they should all be in Elmira on Sunday evening, July 29th
6/7/2012 7:22:53 PM - 004050311582
Hey Hey, looking forward to your shows at Tottenham, from the looks at your bookings you guys are busy..just don't let it git to your heads, and remember us wannabes.

Spoke with a mutual freind on the weekend, Bill White
with the group White Pines and he has highly recomended you if you can be available for our Event in September. His actual words were, THEY"LL BLOW THE ROOF OFF THE PLACE. So it would be great if you are willing to make the trip and join us.

Rescue Junction AMEN to that!!:D i myself have not been around bluegrass that long but i must say that the support R'n'R has graciously shown us as a young group, is almost too overwhelming to describe!!:D thank you to all apart of R'n'R!!

Dear members of the amazing Rhyme'n'Reason Band
I just wanted to let you all know what a fabulous evening we had listening to you perform your gospel bluegrass music " an incredible experience"
What amazing talent, what a wonderful ministry, and what delightful entertainers you are. I especially loved the one about "you being my rose" and the one on which you commented Bill, that your "wood would have to be wet if it didn't stir up fire in you" 8~) Loved it!!!
Thank you so much for sharing your musical gifts with us...I will definitely spread the word!!! and I hope to be at any future performances in this area!!
Love Judy (and Henry) Lunshof
Excellent job on the Rindercella story Bill, 'Such Fun'

Watch for payment for the new cd. Thanks, it is another good one. Congrats for all of the awards the band received in Deerhurst.
That is a great picture of the firetruck, I believe that is (was) a 'Diamond T' a truck brand that is now history. All the best

I cannot thank everyone enough for the effort and good time on Sat. night. My friends Johhny, Adam, Suzie, and Joe made an awesome noise for the folks at Brant Hills Church in Burlington. Rhyme and Reason did there normally spectacular show. Bill had them rolling in the aisles and Doug made them cry. The elders at the church were so pleased once again and wished for me to pass along their gratitude. The funds raised from this event are being used to pay down the debt from the recent accesibility project that included a new elevator and ramp. Once again THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.. We will do this again.

11/7/2010 4:16:37 PM - 003067901650.......Your guys deserve those accolades, I know they worked very hard this year. Although our band is up against yours in the Gospel Nomination –I am quite sure you folks will win. Your schedule alone shows how keen you are and the music sounded great. I was able to hear them while we were at River Valley, although I was quite ill my trailer was near the stage so I could hear them while I was resting.
Koodos to all of you. That means you too Diana, I know how much time and energy we wives put into supporting the band, our husbands and children. I also know without that support it makes it very difficult for the band members to pursue their dreams.
Take care and see you at Deerhurst!***

Excellent website RnR, enjoyed all your videos and your harmonies are exceptional, My wife and I were talking with Diana at Morrisburg there and we were surprised that you do not do this full time, but with Florida on your schedule...maybe time to consider a new vocation. Your cd is great and waiting on your gospel cd... Look forward to seeing another RnR show soon, ..

***Hi Stefan...I wanted to let you know how very much I am enjoying the workshop CD you gave me at Tottenham. I usually don't go to workshops any more as I have found that they often get bogged down in things like bridge height, string size etc. but I had been very impressed with your back up playing with your band and hoped maybe to get you to show me a few of your neat "bluesy" licks afterwards. So I was extremely pleased when you covered just what I was interested in during the workshop and the CD has proved to be a great learning tool that I can use at my own pace. I copied it into my computer and have slowed it down so as to be able to figure out all the notes. All I need now is the time and the fingers to learn the licks and the imagination to include them in my repertoire.
If you don't mind however, I should like to offer a suggestion. The banjo audio comes through loud and clear but your spoken words are hard to hear. If you were to re-record your voice portion, I think you would have an extremely good teaching CD which you should sell rather that give away. I am sure there are many players who would be glad to pay for such valuable information...I know I would. You could offer it for sale at your CD table when the band is performing or maybe Dan Campbell might be interested in having a few copies in his stock.
I really enjoyed hearing your band perform. Your singing and musicianship is top rate and I am looking forward to hearing and seeing you again. I wish you all continued success.
Thanks again for the great workshop and CD.
Cheers!! Jack M
9/7/2010 3:18:04 PM - 003053357175
Last Sunday I finally got to listen to your CD. I just would like to share with you how much I enjoyed it. You folks are really great. Please pass my compliments to the rest of the band.

Everyone can use a little Rhyme n' Reason, and I have been blessed twice this season.

Sunday April 11 Wonderful weekend of Rhyme N Reason. Glad I could make two shows out of three. The Mill was delightful, the music was even better than that. You blew the crowd away at Woodview Community Centre Pineridge Bluegrass Jammin sessions. All of a sudden the front row started to fill up as soon as you sang your first song. Everyone wanted to be closer to your sweet harmonies. Luv you guys.

A little late with comments about Huntsville. You did a great set, lots of class and your harmonies are "out of this world". Dissapointed that you didn't receive any awards, we were on your side all the way. Next year should be a different outcome for sure. Looking forward to hearing you again soon.

I agree with the prior comments that it was a shock to us bluegrassers that you did not bring home the award, your group put on a solid show with great harmonies that my wife and I have not seen ever in a Canadian band, keep up the great work and looking forward to the next show!!

I had to wait a few days to write this after the awards show held in Deerhurst, with harmonies like that how could you not of won the Vocal Group of the year award, that was truly a travesty of injustice and you guys brought back the Class In Bluegrass!!!

Wow Thanks for all the great comments, R'n'R is in no way disappointed, with all the support you all have showed us and the future festivals and events we have booked next year, please STAY TUNED!!

Great job at the awards show this weekend. I agree with Pat Buttenham. You guys will be a force to be reckoned with next year. I've been a fan for quite a while now. You just keep getting better and better. Wes Lowe, BMACC, TVBMA & Sally Creek Festival.

Stefan, Doug, Bill and "we love Randy"-- you were stars this past weekend. I cannot peel the goosebumps off that you caused with the harmonies, the playing, the presentation, well, just everything. Fantastic stuff. Listening to the CD as I type this, causing a new round of gooseflesh. I will be talking with you soon about June 20 in Elliot Lake at 'Bluegrass Heaven'.

Great job at Huntsville guys. Next year will be your year. Your harmonies are tight and blend perfectly. Your group will be a 'force to reckon with' next year once the faithful bluegrasses get to hear you this coming summer. Keep pickin, Pat Buttenham

Congratulations on the nominations! I think I may be moving to the Niagara area next year when i retire--I devoured your site--it looks like there will still be bluegrass in my life if I do end up there. Started a bluegrass jam club here in Elliot Lake, and have played a lot in the Thunder Bay/Minnesota circuit with Maple Ridge. I look forward to meeting all of you this weekend. Love your sound. Elliot Lake is having its second annual bluegrass/gospel festival June 20. You guys busy? We'll talk about it at Deerhurst.
