Brotherhood Tour

Brotherhood Tour

Johnson City, TN – Collectively they have enjoyed more than 100 accolades, industry honors and fan awards. Over they past decade they have received multiple Grammy and GMA Dove Awards, as well as countless Singing News Fan Awards. Since bursting onto the Southern Gospel music scene, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound and The Booth Brothers have each established their place firmly atop the Southern Gospel Music genre’s ladder of success.

This month, the two groups will unite to bring The Brotherhood Tour to California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho for six exciting concert events. Concert stops include Sacramento, Portland, Bothell, Spokane and Nampa. “I am so excited to bring these two artists together,” IMC Concerts President Landon Beene states. “They are both so unique and diverse, but flow together extremely well on stage and compliment each other. I am very anxious to see the response.”
IMC has enjoyed tremendous success in recent years with numerous popular top-selling tours, including The Jubilee Tour and the Cathedrals Family Reunion Tour. “The Brotherhood Tour is going to be electrifying for the attendees,” Beene shares, “and it is most evident that Gospel Music lovers on the West Coast are extremely excited about this event.”
“The Brotherhood Tour is the Blockbuster Tour of the year for Southern Gospel Music,” states long-time West Coast Christian concert promoter Terry Garland. “For many years I have had the privilege to be involved in bringing the very best in Christian music to the West Coast, and it is an honor and thrill to see an event like the Brotherhood Tour come to the West Coast. It is going to be a first-class evening that I know fans will absolutely love!”
According to Beene, the February 14 concert in Bothell, WA sold out so quickly that a matinee concert at 2pm has been schedule. “I have never seen any concert tour sell out so quickly,” Beene shares. “We are absolutely thrilled to be able to offer the matinee in addition to the evening concert to allow more fans to be able to enjoy the stop in Bothell!”
Beene also states that several other West Coast concerts are quickly approaching sell-out status, including Portland, where Beene says that a very limited number of seats available are available.

CATHEDRALS FAMILY REUNION LIVE Recordings Top the Week’s Sales Charts

CATHEDRALS FAMILY REUNION LIVE Recordings Top the Week’s Sales Charts

Cathedrals Family Reuion Live

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—September 17th, 2014–The all-new Cathedrals Family Reunion, Past Members Reunite LIVE in Concert video debuted at #1 on this past week’s Christian Music Video chart and at #2 on the Billboard Music Video chart according to Nielsen SoundScan.  The audio version of the recording topped the Southern Gospel chart and landed at #25 on the Contemporary Christian chart.

Released by Gaither Music Group and Innovative Management and Consulting, LLC (IMC), the recordings capture the historical concerts that took place on November 8th and 9th, 2013, in Fort Worth, Texas, at the MacGorman Performing Arts Center where five former members of the legendary Cathedrals combined voices to celebrate the group’s legacy and pay honor to its founders Glen Payne and George Younce.
The two-day event featured performances by tenor Ernie Haase and his GRAMMY®-nominated quartet Ernie Haase & Signature Sound; baritone Scott Fowler and Legacy Five (a group he co-founded after The Cathedrals retired); lead vocalist and piano player Gerald Wolfe and Greater Vision (the heralded trio he formed upon leaving the group); beloved baritone and bass player Mark Trammel and The Mark Trammel Quartet; and tenor Danny Funderburk, now a popular solo artist and household name among gospel music lovers.  The recordings, an encouraging walk down memory lane, are a tribute to group members Payne and Younce, two patriarchs and mentors who were an inspiration to countless singers for many decades.
The excitement about the recordings and the overwhelming response to the initial concerts in Texas has resulted in a national tour in six select markets organized by IMC in association with Showcase Management.  The tour will start this November in Akron, Ohio, the birthplace of the original Cathedral Quartet where it all began.
Produced by award-winning producer/songwriter Wayne Haun, the Cathedrals Family Reunion, Past Members Reunite LIVE in Concert CD contains classic hits such as “Wedding Music,” “Yesterday,” “Somebody Touched Me,” “Step into the Water,” “Oh, What a Savior,” “Champion of Love,” “We Shall See Jesus” and more.  The companion DVD, produced by IMC’s Landon Beene, contains 17 songs including additions “Oh, Come Along,” “We Shall Be Caught Up,” “Search Me O God” and more.
The new CD and DVD are part of a tv special airing this fall on Dish TV, DirecTV, AT&T Uverse, GaitherTV, TBN, RFD, FamilyNet, CTN, GMTN, Guardian, Liberty, TCT and TLN.  It will air in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV; and the projects are featured in the current HOMECOMING Magazine.
The releases are distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and are available at retail and digital outlets worldwide including iTunes, Amazon and www.gaither.com.  For more information on the event and/or to purchase tickets or product, please visit www.CathedralsFamilyReunion.com.

The weekend event will also feature memorabilia displays, special matinees, a behind the scenes Q&A, a chance to tour “Silhouette,” the last tour bus the Cathedrals used and much more!

“We planned the original Cathedrals Family Reunion as a one-time weekend event,” said Landon Beene, IMC Management. “Immediately after the event and consistently, the IMC Concerts office and the artists were flooded with requests to “do it again” or “take it on tour.” Today, we are excited to announce that we have heard your voice and we are taking the Cathedrals Family Reunion on the road!”

Each tour city has been strategically planned to be within a 500-mile radius of most of the United States of America so that as many people as possible can experience this wonderful weekend of music and memories.

Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Release All-new CD and DVD, Oh What a Savior

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on February 4, 2014 – 10:29 am -

EHSSFebruary 4th, 2014—NASHVILLE, Tenn.–Award-winning and GRAMMY® –nominated quartet Ernie Haase & Signature Sound are releasing an all-new CD and DVD today.  Oh What a Savior, a LIVE project recorded at the Carson Center in Paducah, Ky., was produced by GMA DOVE Award-winning producer and songwriter Wayne Haun.
The group, which features Ernie Haase, Doug Anderson, Devin McGlamery and Paul Harkey, brought their hallmark energy to the stage to perform Gospel standards such as “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” “Heavenly Parade,” “Up Above My Head (I Hear Music in the Air),” “Noah Found Grace in the Eyes of the Lord” and “Scars in the Hands of Jesus” as well as a new, crowd-stirring arrangement of “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
“We sang ‘This Ol’ House’ while in Chennai, India, a couple of years ago; and we included a bridge of ‘When the Saints Go Marching In’ as part of that arrangement,” recalls Haase.  “When we began to sing the bridge the crowd exploded.  We decided right then we needed to do our own arrangement of this Gospel standard.”
One of the group’s most requested Gospel standards ongoing is Haase’s now signature rendition of the title cut, “Oh What a Savior.”
“I never tire of singing this song,” Haase describes.  “To have a song people demand you sing is a career maker to say the least. However, to have audiences sing along with you and take the song away from you takes things to another level. Dare I say a ‘heavenly level.’  That’s worship!”  
In addition to popular favorites, the group recorded several brand new songs on the release including the intimate “Shh, Be Still,” sung around the piano; the first radio single “That’s Why (I Love Him So)”; and “Sometimes I Wonder.”  The group was joined throughout the evening by special guests including the trio Beyond the Ashes, Gaither HOMECOMING favorite Wesley Pritchard and Broadway sensation J.Mark McVey (Les Miserables) who joined the quartet for a chilling rendition of The Sound of Music standard “Climb Every Mountain.”
 “We hope listeners and viewers of the new release will experience joy, hope and encouragement,” stated Haase.  “These are tough times that we are living in, and I believe God placed Signature Sound here for a time such as this to be a bright light.”
Oh What a Savior has been airing on national tv networks includingRFD, DISH TV, DIRECTV, TBN, Family Net, FFE, RURAL TV, TNN, Airtime, CTN, The Walk TV (formerly Legacy), TCT and TLN and also in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, Grace TV and the Miracle Channel. The DVD is also featured on Gaither TV (available on Roku, Google TV and the Internet).
The group will be featured on the next two broadcasts of “Daniel Britt & Friends,” a Gospel radio show on SIRIUS XM Satellite Radio’s enLighten channel (Sirius XM Channel 65).  The guys share stories from the road, describe the making of the Oh What a Savior recording and preview songs from the new release.  The one-hour shows will air as follows:  Monday, February 3rd, at 7PM EST; Thursday, February 6th at 10PM EST; and Saturday, February 8th, at 12PM/NOON EST.
The new CD and DVD, available on February 4th, are exclusively distributed by Capitol Christian Distribution and are available throughout general market stores and the Christian marketplace in addition to online retailers including iTunes, Amazon and G aither.com.
