"Playing By Air Productions" means high energy. They usually perform for corporate meetings, special events, and performing arts centers.

While 4-year-old Kendall Walker is a hospital patient, her squeals and laughter indicate this is great medicine.

Michael Karas is one of the three performers 

"We've been really blessed with these skills and talents that we've nurtured for so many years and we just want to share them with as many people as possible," said Karas.  

What makes this Nashville troupe so special?  

These amazing performers, also have a sense of community, not just their community, but wherever they are playing.

The group came to this area and go to Decatur and play at the Princess Theater.  This just happens to be their paying gig.  

Their second performance, which is free to the public, is being held at the Womens and Childrens portion of Huntsville Hospital.  These children are able to see a performance they may not normally be able to see.

Ted Joblin is also part of the group. 

"So every time we do a show for a performing arts center or a corporation, anything we're brought in like that we do a one for one model, where we donate a performance," said Joblin.

 Karas said it's simple.  

"We still want to give back to the local community. So we research something like a hospital or somewhere where underprivileged people can still see our show and we can bring our talents, in some way to that location," said Karas.

Joplin said they can tell performances like this are a hit because of the audience response. 

"We feed off of that we love seeing that. We love to brighten their day," said Joplin.

Jacob Weiss and his soon to be wife are carrying the work concept to their personal lives. Instead of wedding gifts they are asking friends and family to donate money to fight hunger in their home area.   

"By bringing everyone together for the wedding. That's a great way to get people to help us raise money for causes that are really important in the community.

Giving back everywhere they go including Bobby's Bama.
