Fading World Music
for good times and great memories
About Fading World?
Because of their love for all kinds of music, friends from Perry, MI rehearsed together for the first time in the winter of 2003. After performing locally for a period of time, the group branched out and took their music anywhere good music could be played.

Clarke Heminger began taking piano lessons at age 6 and then switched to the clarinet at age 9. During high school, Clarke began to play the saxophone in the concert band, was drum major of the marching band, and a member of the dance band. Clarke made a career in the auto industry, but continued playing music. This love for music has given him the experience of performing with a number of bands and playing many different types of music including square dance, round dance, bluegrass, big band, classic rock, pop gospel, etc. Music has always been and is still a big part of Clarke's life.
Rod Burkhart, born and raised in Perry, Michigan, has had a longtime love for music which began at an early age. And it progressed as a member of the Jr. and Sr. High school band. In Jr. High he picked up the guitar and has been playing ever since.  He participated in musical groups in his hometown including a gospel singing group in the 1970's.  Rod's "day job" took him all over the country as he performed a sales function for various electric motor manufactures.

He enjoys spending time with family and friends and performing.
