The King’s Strings from Mechanicsburg, PA is a family of musicians that enjoys putting smiles on the faces of its listeners. Since their debut in 2004, they have been bringing those smiles to retirement communities, birthday and anniversary celebrations, fund-raisers, and company Christmas dinners. They have played all over their home state of Pennsylvania, west to Ohio, east to the Chesapeake Bay area and south to Florida. In 2008 they were thrilled to entertain the guests of Pennsylvania’s Governor Ed Rendell at his annual Holiday Open House. This past fall they played the National Anthem for the Harrisburg Senators baseball team.
