Living River, a four-man Christian quartet from central Wisconsin, presents a mix of contemporary styles of praise and worship, gospel and acappella. “They remind me a lot of the Oak Ridge Boys and include many of their songs in their gig,” said Sharon Karow, who helps organize the entertainment each year. “They actually opened for the Oak Ridge Boys when they played at Wausau [some years ago]. “
“Living River is a Christian band playing a mix of country and Christian music and a good witness to the Merrill community, especially when we see this world in turmoil,” she added. “So we hope that the people of the region will come together, relax and enjoy some upbeat music.”
