The best of the best… Their sound, their presence and their interaction with the audience were indeed most excellent. I have received many compliments about the group and the fact that they brought several of the Korean and especially the World War II veterans back on a trip to the time when they served on the ship. Although, some felt that our space was rather cramped, the ladies did an excellent job of working with what they had and took us all into their performance. My wife and I feel that we have new friends who sang to us.
Response from The Ladies for Liberty:
It was our pleasure and honor to entertain for the great heroes who served on the Naval Ship, the USS Fulton along with their families. We always look forward to performing the old songs of WWII, Korea and Vietnam up to the present patriotic tribute to those who appreciate them. Thank you for the great review and we hope to entertain you again next year! All the best to all of you! The Ladies for Liberty
These ladies performed wonderfully and flawlessly singing some old songs and a few more recent. Each can do solos and they blend in beautiful harmony fit for the Halls of Heaven. I told the Opera House manager as exiting that their show is one of the best I have ever heard. He said they will be back here again next year--so will I!
Response from The Ladies for Liberty:
Thank you so much, Gary! We have a passion for what we do and hope to bless others. We appreciate your review and will see you next year at the Mitchell Opera House! Wanda Martin, Ladies for Liberty

What to Expect
The older generation, especially WWII Veterans, will tenderly remember the songs of the Andrews Sisters and rally around the patriotic salute. They will also appreciate the 1940s costumes. The more modern patriotic salute will stir the love of country and freedom for any event (military function, parade, patriotic flavored ceremonies) We honor veterans and active duty service men and women at every performance.
The Ladies for Liberty was formed in 2009 from a desire to revive the great music of the 1940s and WWII Era Andrews Sisters Style. Wanda Martin of Louisville, KY is the current owner and manager of the group. The LfL has 12 members at the present time, which allows more trios to perform at key times of the year. Each troupe’s program is dedicated to raising the level of patriotism in America and flavoring their performance with the Andrews Sister’s style of music. Through their own rendition of vocals, costumes, hairstyles and the spirit of patriotism reminiscent of the 1940s, that period is remembered and celebrated as “When America was at its finest.” Recently, a more modern patriotic salute was added to their performance programs to broaden their audience to military functions, patriotic events and corporate interests. Past performances include: National/Intl Air Shows , WWII Reunions, Symphony Orchestras, Dinner Theaters, Themed Variety Shows, Tradeshows, Hangar Parties, Museums (Vintage Aircraft to modern), Military Functions and Ceremonies, Parades, TV Appearances, Radio Broadcasts, and any other events having a patriotic flavor. The Ladies for Liberty are very popular for singing a precisioned timed National Anthem acapella to open air shows across the country. The members enjoy their participation in promoting especially the wonderful music of the 1940s that honor our WWII Veterans. The Patriotic Salutes provide a great avenue to honor all veterans and active duty service men and women in the United States Military. Above all, we sing to honor America—the Greatest Nation on Earth!

Influences & Inspiration
The Andrews Sisters tight harmonies influenced our act tremendously. We also include several solo favorites from the 1940s WWII era in our program that were sang by many vocalists of the day. Also in our program are a few western songs honoring actors such as Jimmie Stewart, Audie Murphy and Roy Rogers. The more modern patriotic salute represents our own style with a 1940s flavor, but newer more familiar songs of current day.
