Gatlin BrothersWelcome to another week of the ‘Live’ Southern Gospel music connection.  This is your one stop to get concert information for artists that use ‘live’ music in the concert setting.  With NQC happening this week, I am going to spotlight where groups that use live music will be performing during the week.

NQC Spotlights:

 

‘Live’ Music Moment of the Week:

  • This week’s live music moment hearkens the listener back to the glory days of the Hoppers (1992), when they toured and sang with a band.  Here is a YouTube clip (published by gospelvideohub) of the Hoppers singing one of my all time favorite songs; “Heavenly Sunrise”.
  • If listeners can’t see this is what is missing from today’s Southern Gospel concert performances, then I guess we have different definitions of performance.  The way the instruments perfectly compliment the vocals create a musical moment that is lacking in today’s fine-tuned, stack heavy, track dominated concert.  Enjoy!
