Three On a String at Sundilla
You dont last for 50 years in the entertainment business if you arent very good at entertaining. And Three On a String is better than very good. They are fantastic, incredible, hilarious and legendary, and theyll be bringing all of that and more to Sundilla on Friday, August 28. Showtime at the AUUF is 7:30, and advance tickets are an unreasonably low $15. You can get those at Spicers Music, Ross House Coffee, and online at www.sundillamusic.com; admission at the door will be $20. Free coffee, tea, water and food will be available, and the audience is invited to bring their own favorite food or beverage.
The describe themselves and their shows as Mirth and Merriment, and Jerry Ryan says I hate it when I have more fun than the audience. Jerry and Bobby Horton were the original duo, as they teamed up for one performance at Horse Pens 40 in 1971. Someone suggested they add a bass and thus Three on a String was born. Some personnel changes and lots of one-nighters eventually evolved into performances with symphony orchestras in several states including a nine city tour with the Alabama Symphony, opening for Bill Cosby, Red Skelton, Barbara Mandrel, Jeff Foxworthy, George Lindsey, Ray Stevens and many more top stars.
Though their aim is to get you laughing and smiling and then to keep you there, dont be fooled into thinking that they only have comedy to offer. All four members of the group are excellent musicians. Bobby Horton is proficient on more than 20 instruments you have heard Bobbys work in at least ten documentaries from Ken Burns, including those about the Civil War, baseball, the National Parks, and Mark Twain. Andy Meginnis was an integral part of the band for more than a decade, left to work on his own projects for a while, then re-joined the group in 2013 and now says he is having more fun than ever. And Brad Ryan has grown up in the group, since taking over bass 30 years ago.

Another lady said, I laughed so much, my cheeks hurt! Thanks for presenting a good, clean, entertaining and completely hilarious program. Our people have demanded that you come back!
