Our heartfelt THANKS for performing your special "washtub" music...I can still hear "Turn Your Radio On," and many other beautiful songs.  Judy, your finger snapping, and all the instruments you played, let us enjoy your many skills. I was reminded of the movie,"A Prairie Home Companion" and the skills demonstrated to make the old radio programs.
You both have beautiful and perfect voices singing together, and Whitt, your guitar and kazoo playing were great! You both gave a big group of old folks an uplifting, encouraging and happy time together!  We had much audience response and evident satisfaction and pleasure during your presentation. We try to find excellent entertainment each month, and you were great! You are loved and appreciated!   Hopefully...we can have you come again.
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.
