What we'll do

We will perform for your church or ministry
on a "love offering" basis...

This is where our hearts are really most "at home"...
all the rest is "tent making" to us, and if you don't get that reference you might not be comfortable here.  We recommend you consult with the apostle Paul to learn what that means, which brings us to the center of our ministerial intent:
to get everyone interested in the Bible, believer or not.

As we travel, we make ourselves available, when time and circumstances permit, to play for churches and outreach ministries on a “love offering” basis.
There is a minimum of “preaching.”
"The McKinneys entertain as they minister, and minister as they entertain, mixing comedic numbers that make spiritual points with unique original songs which are very direct and evangelistic.  They also present some fresh treatments of old favorites.
But their trademark is comedy.
Their insights are enlightening, 
their perspective thought-provoking, 
and their purpose is The Gospel.
With the voice of someone who has experienced the world, they promote the Kingdom and its long-awaited unity in these challenging times. 
There is repeated stress on the importance of knowing and living Scripture.             (Click here for testimony)

You’ll hear a variety of traditional instrumentsguitarmandolinflutebodhranukulele—and some "homemade" music on the washtub bass & rhythm washboard that will surprise you!
You’ll hear sound effects, and
the whole audience gets in on the fun from time to time, clapping, singing, or shouting things out to contribute to the hilarity.
Invite friends and neighbors who might never enter a church, ordinarily, but have a sense of humor.  
Folks of all ages will hear, and think about, the basics of the gospel, and have a great time.  It’s joyful and a little noisy."

(After the proceedings, 
everyone is invited to try the washtub bass!)
we perform for churches and ministries
on a love-offering basis.
I gratefully thank you again for your WONDERFUL presentation!
 I would recommend you to anyone anytime!

Whitt and Judy McKinney will be a delight for any
 opportunity you have for them to perform.
Their cerebral humor is good for the soul, and they will challenge your audience with all things inspirational. 
I would recommend them for your entertainment plans, that is if you want humor hitting you at blazing speed. Be sharp on the night they come your way, and you will enjoy many laughs, which is always good for the soul.Pastor Paul BurdickWesley Chapel

In Proverbs it says "a merry heart doeth good like a medicine."
The Washtub Two (Whitt and Judy) have a ministry for that.
It was wonderful to watch the expressions on people's faces as they performed in our concert. Whitt and Judy have my recommendation for perfoming at any event.

Judy and Whitt brought a fun and uplifting program of music and festivity to the 2001
 Banquet for our church.Having heard them at a local Christian Coffee House, we contacted them to share their good humor and down-home music to our congregation. Their music and their repartee was a hit with everyone-especially the chicken song! Their well-paced humor was timed just right, and their regional and southwest ballads were just what we had ordered.
Judy and Whitt were easy to work with, and brought a level of professionalism to our contacts.
 highly recommend them.
