The Myrtle Beach Performing Arts Series adds another amazing show to their 2017 lineup with the addition of the Gaither Vocal Band, performing on Sunday, Oct. 15 at 6 p.m. at The Carolina Opry Theater.
Bill Gaither has been delighting Myrtle Beach with gospel music for many years but 2017 will mark a new chapter as Gaither and Calvin Gilmore have agreed to make The Carolina Opry Theater their featured venue in Myrtle Beach. Gilmore is excited to announce this fall show and looks forward to future Gaither events at the theater as well.
The current Gaither Vocal Band roster is comprised of Bill Gaither, Wes Hampton, David Phelps, Adam Crabb and Todd Suttles. Individually, these men are gifted artists and men of authentic faith. Together, they are known around the world for their powerhouse vocals, innovative harmonies, and life-altering message of grace, hope and redemption.
The Gaither Vocal Band got its start in the early 1980s with four guys singing around a piano backstage before a Bill Gaither Trio concert. Gary McSpadden, Steve Green, Lee Young and Bill Gaither were just having fun, harmonizing on “Your First Day in Heaven” when Bill decided they should try out their new sound on a live audience that very night. The audience went wild… and that impromptu performance marked the beginning of an era.
Now, for more than a quarter century, the Gaither Vocal Band has created a legacy of award-winning excellence that has forever raised the bar for male harmony. The list of men who have comprised the Gaither Vocal Band over the years reads like a “Who’s Who” among the gospel music industry’s best-loved voices. And, always at the helm, has been Bill Gaither, who has led the group out of his personal passion for great harmony and his genuine desire to bring meaningful music to a hurting world. The Grammy-winning, chart-busting success of the Gaither Vocal Band has far exceeded his wildest expectations.
The Gaither Vocal Band (and a few surprise special guests) will be at The Carolina Opry Theater for one night only, Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 6pm.
