"THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING GOSPEL BLUEGRASS FAMILY GROUP BAND AND THIS DVD IS AN OUTSTANDING CONTEMPORARY GOSPEL BLUEGRASS COMPILATION DVD OF THEIR PERFORMANCES/INTERVIEWS & ETC., FROM THE GATHIER HOMECOMING SERIES!!! IT CONSISTS OF APPROXIMATLY 20 SONGS,ALL VERY WELL PERFORMED!!! IN THIS LINE-UP YOU GET THE MOTHER (Lily on vocals), TWO SISTERS (Rebecca on guitar & vocals,and Sonya on mandolin and vocals) A BROTHER (Ben on bass & vocals), PLUS ANOTHER INSTRUMENT PLAYER (Rebecca's husband Mr. Bowman -I can't remember his 1st name). PLUS, YOU GET SOME ADDITIONAL BACKUP MUSICIANS (on violins, banjo's,ets)!!!
THIS DVD CONTAINS SOME DIFFERNT SONGS THAN THE "LIVE FROM NORWAY" CONCERT DVD BY THE ISAACS. EVERY SONG IS GREAT AND VERY WELL PERFORMED.
PLUS, YOU GET SOME HISTORY ABOUT THIS FAMILY. THE MOTHER IN THE BAND TELLS THE STORY ABOUT HOW HER MOTHER SURVIVED THE HOLOCAUST AND CONCENTRATION CAMPS IN POLAND, DURING THE NAZI OCCUPATION. PLUS, THE "GRANDMOTHER" WHO SURVIVED THE HOLOCAUST IS ON THE DVD AND GETS TO TELL SOME OF HER EXPERIENCES.
THE FAMILY MOVED FROM POLAND TO NEW YORK AND THEN FROM NEW YORK TO TENNEESEE AND BECAME A COMTEMPORARY GOSPEL BLUEGRASS BAND.
THIS IS AN OUTSTANDING DVD, IF YOU'RE INTO THIS KINDA OF MUSIC, YOU SHOULD ENJOY THIS ONE, AND SO I RECOMMEND IT!!!"
Fun and Entertaining!

"We have this and love it. We like to listen to it over and over. Lily's testimony is incredible and makes us praise the Lord! This family is so talented and it is fun to see them grow in talent and in faith over the years. We highly recommend this for anyone who loves the Lord, and good music. Both heartfelt and fun praise! We wish there were more DVD's of the Isaacs! :)"
