Catholic Charities Fundraiser Once Again Featured DBBB!
Return clients are always very important
to us. On February 14, the DBBB braved blinding snow to return to Wheeling, West Virginia and performed for the Catholic Charities
Mardi Gras Gala held at the Wheeling Park White Palace, 1801 National Road in Wheeling. This attests to the kind of dedication
the band has. Their event would have had a huge hole in the evening if we were unable to make it. Kudos to the band, their
driving skills, patience, and determination. Oh, and the band sounded fantastic!
