What the folks have to say about Honey Creek Pass:
“Travis Wackerly and Honey Creek Pass’ recent performance at the Greater Oklahoma Bluegrass Music Society (GOBMS) was not only entertaining, but a showcase of bluegrass talent. Great vocals and instrumentation were complimented by the precise and versatile fiddle work of the young, up and coming Travis Wackerly. A joy to listen to!” - Melba Arnold. Program Chairman and Public Relations Coordinator of the Greater Oklahoma Bluegrass Music Society www.gobms.org

Kevin played upright bass on Travis Wackerly’s latest recording project, “Where Dad Left Off.”
