5-Member Gaither Vocal Band Review

I don't know how to say what I want to say. There's not really any good way to put it into words. The Gaither Vocal Band is on fire. Mark Lowry jokes about it being the "recycled Gaither Vocal Band." I say: "Hardly!" I saw them for the first time in Greensboro, NC this weekend and could not believe the sound would be this good. I have heard from so many that this was THE best concert in a long, long time. Just when you think the Homecoming tour might be slowing, watch out! Signature Sound was great, Collingsworth Family is amazing, Lynda, Janet, Ben, Gordon, Kevin ... it's a great combo. Nothing but good things to say. Of course, I'm a fan - but this was "ridiculously good" as my co-host Melody would say!

Another thrill was having a private reception with Joy FM donors 2 hours before the show. Imagine the surprise on everyone's faces when Ben Speer, Janet Paschal, Gordon Mote, Kevin Williams, Rory Rigdon, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Bill Gaither and the Gaither Vocal Band showed up!! GVB and EHSS even sang a few songs. I hope to have some video clips soon of that excitement.
