In southern gospel circles, Gold City is a band that needs no introduction. It comes from Gadsden, Alabama and has been active since 1980, churning out hit Christian single after another. This Christian music group's members are Bryan Elliott, Robert Fulton, Daniel Riley, Chip Pullen and Tim Riley. Each of the group's members is a well versed singer or musician and together they form a lineup that has been recording some of the best southern gospel music in the States. The group originated from the Christianairs and was renamed after moving to Dahlonega, Georgia in 1980.
The group members performing in the upcoming Gold City McKameys concert are tenor singer Bob Oliver, bassist Dallas Gilliland, lead singer Jerry Ritchie and baritone singer Ken Trussell. Soon after its founding, the group rose to fame in the gospel music industry and in a year was playing at the National Quartet Convention's main stage, a honor reserved for the best quartet. By 1982, the band's lineup saw Ivan Parker as the lead singer with Brian Free as the tenor singer, Tim Riley and piano player Garry Jones. The lineup was the same until 1993.
During the nineties, Gold City continued playing its trademark music, complete with heavy bass, and saw several musicians come and go. In 2006, Aaron McCune joined the group as the bassist, adding a deep range and smoothness to the quartet's music. In 2010, Brent Mitchell became the group's tenor singer but had to leave the band in 2011 due to his daughter's sickness. Dan Keeton and Jerry Pelfrey joined the band in 2011 after Craig West left.
The band's first albums were 1981's First Day in Heaven, Sing Golden Nuggets, We Believe and Songs of Days Gone By. Their discography is filled with seventy seven amazing albums, the latest being 2011's Somebody's Coming.
The other half of the Gold City McKameys concert is this fabulous southern gospel band from Clinton, Tennessee. The McKameys were formed in 1954 and are a living legend in Christian music. Their many albums and popular songs have been released by labels ranging from Crossroads Music and Morningstar Records to Horizon Records. The groups members today are singers and musicians Ruben Bean, Sheryl Farris, Peg Bean, Connie Fortner, Eli Fortner and Roger Fortner.
The McKameys were formed by the three McKamey sisters; Peg, Dora and Carol in 1954 as a trio of Christian music singers. They started singing at their local church and what was a one time thing grew when they were invited to perform at other churches, events and revivals. Soon, their fame spread outside their city and then state. In no time, the three sisters were travelling to Ohio, Florida and Indiana to stage their gospel music. They were joined by Ruben Bean in 1957, who became the trio's singer and soon the band grew in size.
What was a fabulous gospel band has since then continued, carried on by the original members' children and families. In 1971, Sheryl and Connie took over for two of the sisters and have since then sung beautiful Christian music. Each year, the McKameys play more than one hundred and fifty concerts in the US and Canada. Sixteen of their songs have ranked number one and they have the most number one hits in southern gospel music. They have won many awards, including Singing News' Favorite Female Vocalist Award as well as having the largest number of Number One singles on the Singing News charts.
