The Poets are synonymous with musical entertainment. For 56 years, the musical group has brought joy to thousands of people at clubs, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and special events.
The band has also opened for many national acts that performed here and also inspired others to get into the music business. What began in 1963 took its final curtain call in April.
