"A Double Shot To Our Fair"

Double Shot came to our fair looking very nice and they were very nice to everyone. We were very pleased with them and would like to have them back. They handled themselves in a wounderful manner. They both never once said or did anything out of line. If you think about using them for a function, don't think, just get them. They will do what they do best sing and entertain you. Their set up was great they were very perfessional. We wish them both all the luck in the coming year. "Don't change guys! You were wounderful for our fair". All I can say is try these guys out. You'll like them and won't be disappointed. Watch out though, they might even make you laugh. We thank Double Shot for the time they spent with us and hope they had as good a time as we all did.

Jason Gordon of Armington, IL has received much acclaim for his great baritone wherever he has performed, as well as for his dynamic singing style. His powerful voice has a quality described as "pure and honest country". Jackson Brumley, a promoter and producer from Nashville, TN said Jason's voice is "a powerful mix of George Jones, Vern Gosdin and Alan Jackson". Jason's fans find his voice addictive, once you hear him, you've got to come back for more. He is as comfortable with the music of George Jones, Toby Keith and Alan Jackson as he is with Marty Robbins, Old Hank, and Hank Williams Jr. Jason has opened shows for Kevin Sharp, Trace Adkins, and Joe Diffey and has appeared individually or with the Night Hawk Band at fairs, festivals, oprys, clubs, and dance halls throughout Central Illinois, including The West in Bloomington, Par-a-dice Hotel/Casino in East Peoria, and the Decatur Fall Festival. He has been a guest many times at New Salem Country Opry, Bement Country Opry, Kentuckiana Opry, McLean County Country Opry, Gary Nabor's Country Hoedown, and the Wagon Wheel Opry.
