The Bowling Family combines talent, sincerity and experience to
create a memorable concert experience. Their goal for the evening is
to usher in the presence of God and celebrate the Christian message.
They feel privileged and honored to enjoy the freedom to honor Christ
with any and all of their abilities.
The trio consists of Mike Bowling and his wife, Kelly and alto Terah
Crabb Penhollow. They bring you their stories and songs in a way that
is reminiscent of days gone by. To watch them perform reminds us of a
time when “all night singings” were the norm, and folks lined up
early to visit with the singers and musicians. As in most things,
musical styles come full circle. What is old is new, and what is new
is old!! Musically, Mike, Kelly and Terah make us realize this.
Somehow they have created a sound that is as refreshing as the trio
sounds of the early 70s. Mike has often been referred to as the vocal
stylist of the day; however, the completion is so obvious with Kelly
and Terah by his side. History will note that they have been true to
the excellence of their ability without diminishing or distancing the
The Bowling Family is no strangers to the Christian music world
having a long list of accomplishments during their vocal careers.
While Mike began singing and playing piano at a very young age, he
had a very impressive musical beginning at only 16 years old; a two
year span with the legendary LeFevres. Mike then went on to earn a
degree in Respiratory Therapy before returning to the music world. In
1995, he joined the New Hinsons, a perfect blend considering Mike’s
vocals are very distinctively similar to those of the late Kenny
Hinson. After lending his vocal abilities to several of their high-
charting songs, Mike went on to join another successful family group,
the Perrys. While with the Perrys, Mike was featured on songs such as
“God Sent Angels,” “By Faith I Can Touch Him Now,” “Not Even A
Stone,” “Redeemed,” “When He Spoke,” and many others.
After Mike’s marriage to Kelly, Kelly sang with her family…the Crabb
Family, Mike spent the next six years traveling as a soloist
garnering a tremendous amount of success.
For all the folks that grieved the loss of the Crabb Family. Give the
Bowlings a listen. You won’t be disappointed.
