Subject: Question

I am the Activity Director at a Senior Living Community in Bluffton, Indiana. (River Terrace Estates) We are having a Hog Roast for our Residents on October 20th from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.. Some of our residents have requested some live Blue Grass Music.  My problem is I do not know any Blue Grass Groups or how much they would charge. I found your website and was hoping you could help me with some information.
We are located between Markle and Bluffton on St. Rd 116 approximately 25 miles south of Fort Wayne.

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you,
