Southern Anthem gets better each year

20170223 Southern Anthem stageWith a child prodigy fiddle player in 11-year-old Logan, members of Southern Anthem quipped they feared they would soon be known as the Logan Pausewang Back-up Band. Logan improves every year he plays. Taking lessons from Wade Landry has not hurt either. He plays many good fiddling songs but his trio of “Folsum Prison Blues,” “A-Train” and “Orange Blossom Special” produced a robust burst of applause from an obviously pleased audience, nodding their heads approvingly at the amount of talent he was displaying during one of their recent shows in the RGV.

But there is no need for Southern Anthem to fear. Mikaela, 16, has a very strong lead voice on all songs she sings, and Derek’s voice is maturing at 17. He does a great job on the “Auctioneer” song. Mom, Wendy, makes great harmony with Mikaela and also sings lead. She plays several musical instruments. With 4-year-old Miranda making her debut on stage this year, the band has a bright future.

They won Inspirational Group of the Year at the Gatesville Music Festival and also received the Texas Star Award. They appeared in Branson last year and plan to return again this summer.

For more information about their show schedule or for bookings, call Wendy Pausewang at (254) 718-8505.
