Adkins Family Music
These guys would get together every year or so and do some jammin'. Sometimes it would be in the basement, in the attic or sometimes in the living room. Jack is on the left, Craig in front and Norvel (Jack/Dad) is upper right. Occasionally they would do some recording and got some damn good tracks. Jack still plays professionally in the Tampa Bay Florida area. Craig is active in recording, writing and exploring more and  more into the use of the guitar. Norvel (Nickname Jack) played several  instruments when he was younger and then stopped to help raise six kids. Then as Craig and Jack became musicians he had retired and got back into music. His Dad, Golden George Adkins was a singer and musician and his brother Wally and his Family all sang/sing and play. We all got it honestly. We lost Dad in February 1999.
