“The Annual Meeting of Members of Horry Electric Cooperative always includes time in the schedule for some entertainment,” says James P. “Pat” Howle, executive vice president and CEO of the cooperative. “This year, we’re excited to have not just one, but two outstanding and extremely talented music groups performing on stage at the HTC Center between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.”
The Hinson Girls are four sisters from Lancaster, SC who have been performing bluegrass gospel music since 2009. Their love for music has brought them closer together, and opened many opportunities to share their talents. In March 2012, they won 1st place at the SC Bluegrass Band Championship held at the Renofest Bluegrass Festival in Hartsville, SC. In July 2012, they were featured on WBTV Charlotte, NC’s “Carolina Camera”. The girls hope to perform bluegrass music for many years to come and encourage other young fans to enjoy and participate in this wonderful genre of music.
The Gentlemen of Bluegrass includes Danny Stanley (lead vocals/guitar), JC Rowland (tenor vocals/mandolin), Tom Langdon (resonator guitar/baritone vocals), Greg Penny (bassist/vocals), and Randy Smith (banjo/vocals) provide a sound some have said to be in the sub genre of The Classic Country Gentlemen and Seldom Scene. This will be the fourth appearance at the Annual Meeting of Members for some members of the band.
The Annual Meeting of Members of Horry Electric Cooperative is a MEMBERS ONLY event and the entertainment portion of the schedule is not open to the public. The business meeting begins at 7 p.m.
