The Stagehands have become a favorite of Sucarnochee Revue audiences and everyone just loves to hear them sing. What you may not know is that they are getting to meet and get their photographs taken with all sorts of folks, including Jacky Jack White!
And now we’ve obtained some of those photos from sources who would prefer to remain nameless and we’re publishing them here for your review!
Jack received an ASCAP Award for “If I Didn’t Love You”, and a NSAI Award for the #1 Southern Gospel song, “When Men Pray”. Jack is also recipient of the 2009-2010 Fellowship in Music from the Alabama State Council on the Arts. In 2010, Jack was recognized for his musical and educational contributions around the Southeast Region by his inclusion in the SouthernArtistry.org list of regional artists by South Arts.
As the ringleader, carnival barker and host of The Sucarnochee Revue, Jacky makes it all look easy. His mannerisms, jokes and singing style are all part of the show and big reasons why the Sucarnochee is a lot like slipping on comfortable jeans. He makes you feel welcome and at home. So much so that the audience feels a part of the show and in truth, they really are.
Britt Gully…Road warrior of a blue million honky tonks, and churches. Plays any kind of music,electric or acoustic, wonderfully well. The Smithsonian, among many, regard Britt as one of the very best interpreters of Jimmie Rodgers music.
Britt Gully is what you call GENUINE. He is as country as country can be and an incredibly nice guy that packs a whole lot of talent in his back pocket to boot. He’s funny, humble, entertaining and one heck of a country songwriter. You can expect to hear from this talent in the future…so keep your eye on him–he’s Opry Bound!

J. Burton Fuller: A legendary regional guitarist/singer. Played with “Danny and the Dudes” on local television in the 1950′s. In 2004, J. Burton recorded a critically acclaimed album “On a Sumter County Porch“.
Fuller sings from the heart and from home. Whether it is an old gospel hymn, a Jim Reeves favorite, or one of his own songs, this is one performer who will make you feel what he is feeling.
A favorite on the Sucarnochee Revue, J. Burton Fuller puts it all into perspective and helps listeners carry the show with them long after the curtain descends.
Mississippi Chris Sharp & The Jangalang String Band……..combining their own style of Bluegrass meets country meets rockin’ blues, mississippi chris sharp and the jangalang string band march to their own upright bass beat. Chris is the leader and they perform 90% of his original material.
Mississippi Chris Sharp makes no bones about his roots heritage. “I cut my teeth on Jimmie Rodgers records,” says Sharp, who learned his first Jimmie Rodgers tunes at the hands of Mrs. Elsie McWilliams, the sister-in-law of Rodgers, a member of the songwriter’s hall of fame, and the writer of such classic tunes as “Frankie and Johnny”
Also taking his first guitar lessons from Mrs. Virginia Shine, a first cousin of Rodgers and a talented songwriter in her own right, Chris got a double dose of old time country. “Add the musical raisin’ I got from Raymond E. Huffmaster, and you’ll understand how I got my start,” says Chris.
Sharp definitely is in a league of his own with a band full of truly unique kats.

Track 45 often performs as a family band when parents Joel and Susie join the kids with additional vocals and instruments.
