PRICECREW ready for Big-Time

PRICECREW is made up of four brothers from Jacksonville, Arkansas. Philip-24, Zachary-21, Jacob-15 and Caleb-14; Caleb was barely two years old at that first performance but he still knew the right way to move. The crew has been singing and dancing ever since. There is something special going on when four brothers from Arkansas can sing, dance and put on a show the way PRICECREW can.

Throughout the past few years the brothers have grown to understand it takes hard work and dedication to accomplish what their dreams hold.
