Shine Your Light
The Sandspur Band is a nurturing ministry of Gulf Shores United Methodist Church. The band takes gospel music into the homes of shut-ins as well as nursing homes and assisted living facilities. They have also performed for numerous church and community functions. Starting in 2002 with three musicians, the band has grown to it's current membership of seven. Members are: Mel Middlebrooks (guitar), Clarence Bauer (banjolele), George Hasenbein (autoharp), Susie Davis (vocals), Larry Davis (harmonica), Neil Wade (bass) and Audrey Hasenbein (vocals). Harmonizing vocally is something that all the band members enjoy while playing what they like to call "Stained Glass Bluegrass" music. The band has been truly blessed in their ministry and hope they will continue to be a blessing to others.
