The “HOT” Gospel Sing

I’d like to emphasize the word “summer” in this post.  It was over 100 degrees in Springfield, Missouri as fans lined up outside of Remington’s on a Friday night for a concert with the Talleys and Tribute Quartet.  Me? – I was not among them!  LOL  I didn’t have a problem with grabbing a quick…

Seeing A Legacy Live

The Meramec Music Theater brings in the best in Southern Gospel Music every month.  If you’ve been keeping an eye on this site from the beginning of the year, you’ll know that just a few short months ago I saw Brian Free and Assurance there…and if you know me, you can guess that I’ll be…

Southern Gospel and Super-Hero’s

  The fourth and final concert that we attended while on vacation is one that I look forward to every year – the Superman Festival.  For four days the city of Metropolis, Illinois is the hub of festivities.  Booths line each side of the street displaying all kind of goodies (including peanut butter funnel cakes!…very…

“Wherever This Is Ohio” – Mark Trammell

A week down the road we found ourselves cruising down the curvy roads of Ava, Ohio in search of the Ava United Methodist Church.  This would be our third concert to attend while on vacation and we were soaking it up!  Ava was a small town with big character.  For the first time ever, we…

Fairfield, Fried Baloney and Flower Pots

If you have been following my Facebook and/or Twitter account, you’ll know that my family and I just arrived home from our vacation. In two weeks, we passed through eight states, drove over 2,500 miles, visited family, the Creation Museum, Gettysburg, a conference, saw the moonbow at Cumberland Falls, and of course, a Southern Gospel…

Part Two – Jubilee Concert

Greater Vision was the last group to perform before the intermission and kicked off their set with a well-loved number, He’d Still Been God.  As the song ended Gerald’s eyes lit up and he let out a whoop!  Then he hit the next track – a medley of hymns with the theme “redeemed.”  (Since I…

Tin-Ears, Macho Men, Barley Tones and a Lone Bass Singer…

After a trek to Nebraska on Wednesday I found myself driving to another concert that very Saturday, only this one took me in the opposite direction – Tennessee!  That weekend was the much anticipated “Jubilee 3” tour with Greater Vision, Legacy Five and the Booth Brothers.  I was privileged to be able to attend one…

Two Quartets – One Stage – One Cause

My travels in Southern Gospel Music have taken me to many places across the nation.  Every now and then, I get to go somewhere new!  That’s exactly where I went for this next concert review – somewhere new…   Yep!  For the very first time in my life I went to the state of Nebraska…

A “Joy Ride” With Ivan Parker

Just when you think you’ve found all of the “golden concert nuggets” that are hidden in your area of the world – you travel a little farther down the road and find another one!  That’s just what happened with this next venue.  Over in the bootheel, in a little town called Miner, a face very…

Back From The West – Tribute Quartet

One of my favorite things about attending concerts are the annual events – concerts that take place every year with the same artist, at the same place, and sometimes even at the same time of year.  So, I guess you know what kind of review this is? – If you said an annual concert, you…
