“A truly entertaining history of Christmas carols and traditions.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2009

Do you like to sing? Do you like Christmas traditions? Do you like history? Do you like Christmas music? If you answer "Yes" to any of these, this show is a must for you to see. Informative and entertaining, the best part is that it's interactive (if you want it to be). I absolutely recommend this great value. Thank you, Rick Garland!

“Fantastic Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2009

While in Harper's Ferry in October, we spent a morning with Rick for his O' Be Joyfull Tour and I think it was the best tour we have ever done. He is both knowledgeable and entertaining, covers everything from George Washington to the Civil War and more. You will hear details that are not in typical history reads.

“Great Show at Nursing Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2009

In September I asked Rick (O' Be Joyfull) if he could do a show for the residents of Green Acres nursing home in Gettysburg, PA. He immediately said yes. The average age of the folks at Green Acres is around 80 and not an easy group to get excited. It did not take to long for Rick to get his audience clapping and singing along with him. All the white haired ladies and the bald men were having the time of there lives. After the show many of the audience thanked Rick and told him what a great show he had put on. The next day many of the staff and residents thanked me for asking Rick to perform and told me how much they enjoyed it. I have seen Rick perform many times and nevr get tired of his show

“Great tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2009

On a recent trip to Harper's Ferry, we spent a few hours on Rick's walking tour. Even though it rained almost the entire time, it well worth it! Rick's knowledge and enthusiasm is great. There is no better way to learn about the history surrounding Harper's Ferry - highly recommended!!
