While selecting songs for the upcoming Tribute To The Legends Of Quartet Gospel broadcast we were re-introduced to The Northern Kentucky Brotherhood Singers. They are a group of very talented singers. And, what makes them extra special is that they are an A Cappella group.
“The Brotherhood Singers are among the very few remaining Quartet style groups that still perform in the old-school A Cappella fashion.” They “specialize in the intricate and emotional four-part harmony “jubilee” style pioneered by such legendary groups as the Dixie Hummingbirds, The Golden Gate Quartet, The Soul Stirrers and The Harptones of Cincinnati.”
The members of the group are Eric Riley, Ric Jennings, Greg Page, Stace Darden & Demetrius Davenport. Together they produce some of the smoothest harmony heard in gospel music. They have shared their extraordinary vocals with audiences as far away as Spain. They have also performed at The Library of Congress, The Kennedy Center, MLB Baseball games, at churches and other venues around the country.
What these guys do to songs like “Mary Don’t You Weep,” “Last Mile Of The Way” and “Did You Stop To Pray” will leave you speechless. In addition, it shows their appreciation for songs left to us by some of the giants of this genre. They really represent the best of old school gospel – A Cappella style.
Songs from their CD 20 years, and Just Gettin’ Started will be aired during the Tribute To The Legends Of Quartet Gospel broadcast at Gloryland Gospel Quartet Radio.
