The Double Shot group is made up of Lynchburg-born Andy and Lee Huffer, who have been performing since 2018.
While Double Shot plays country and western music, they play everything from Merle Haggard to Usher as well as audience favorites like Luke Combs and Alabama.
“We just want to keep growing,” Andy said. “Our goal is that as long as we grow and move forward, we accomplish what we want to accomplish. “
Lee said his end goal was to be able to perform on national and world tours.
Playing at events like HorsePlay’s fundraiser is a chance for the Huffer brothers to give back to those who have invested their time there and to stay in touch with their roots.
They said they love to play music and are excited to perform for a cause that will help children have an experience they don’t often have.
Andy and Lee said they were excited to play Bolo Club as they have the chance to perform in a barn which is an idea they wanted to do.
“Playing in a loft is going to be cool, and I can’t wait to see all the kids,” Lee said. “I don’t know what to expect, but I can’t wait to see what we got into.”
