Offbeat: Singing Family

June 1, 2007--Posted at 9:30 a.m.

JONESBORO, AR--They're not the Osmonds, the Jacksons, the Von Traps, or even the Partridge family for that matter, they are the Tarkingtons, and they may be coming to a city near you.

Beau, Anita, Friedric, Sebastion, Xavier and Anastasia Tarkington spend a couple of hours a day practicing their musical arts and practicing their show in their garage turned studio and stage.  For the family it's about lightening up the serious stucy of music and spending family time together.

The Tarkington kids range in age from 8-19, playing all types of instuments from piano, to violin, drums and stand up bass. Right now the talented tarkingtons play all kinds of music and perform for all kinds of events, banquets, senior groups, churches, and best of all some jam sessions for neighbors and friends out of the garage.

So if you ever get the chance, get your ticket and jump aboard the Tarkington Express, because there's no telling where or how far it will go.
