DMG Concerts

DMG Concerts

(Hendersonville, TN – August 1, 2014) Daywind Music is excited to announce the birth of a separate division of its operation, Daywind Music Group (DMG) Concerts.

The purpose of the new division is to promote Southern Gospel music through elite concert events.

“Our mission at Daywind is to reach people through great Christian music,” explains Daywind Records vice president and A & R director Scott Godsey. “We have launched DMG Concerts to connect Southern Gospel fans with their favorite artists at unique events. How the music is delivered continues to progressively change due to advancements in technology. We have launched DMG Concerts to deliver music directly to the fans in person. This new division of Daywind Music Group could best be described as a boutique promotions company. We will focus on special, multi-day events and see what doors open for us.”

The first major event for DMG Concerts will be the Greenbrier Quartet Festival, which will be held from March 9-11, 2015, at The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va. The Greenbrier – which is an award-winning, four-star, luxury resort that is commonly referred to as America’s resort – attempts to combine the graciousness of the past with the exceptional comforts of today.

The Greenbrier Quartet Festival is expected to be an annual event. The 2015 festival will include some of the industry’s elite male quartets, including the Blackwood Brothers, Brian Free and Assurance, Gold City, the Guardians Quartet, the Kingsmen, Legacy Five, Tribute and Triumphant. Bass singer Gene McDonald and tenor singer Jay Parrack will also be performing during the four-session event.

“You don’t want to miss this inaugural event,” emphasizes Godsey. “We hope that this will only be the first of many memorable events that DMG Concerts is able to deliver.”

Additional DMG Concerts events will be announced in the near future.

For more information on the Greenbrier Quartet Festival or to order tickets, visit www.dmgconcerts.com or call 1-800-635-9581.

Hoppers

(Madison, NC) July 30, 2014GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame members, The Hoppers, are excited to announce their A Night To Remember Tour in select cities during August 2014. The legendary group is partnering with talent agent and tour producer Israel Berry, President/CEO of The Berry Agency to present these special evenings.

 
Filled with music from America’s favorite family along with a choir (in select cities), special moments throughout the concert and special guest Karlye Hopper (Dean & Kim’s daughter), this is an evening designed for the entire family.
 
“We’re looking forward to sharing a ‘Night to Remember’ with our friends this August,” shares Dean Hopper. “It’s a special treat to perform with Karlye, our daughter, and I know the audiences will enjoy the special surprises we have in store.”
 
Partnering with The Berry Agency’s Israel Berry was an important piece of the puzzle in securing these concert dates and venues. “I’ve admired The Hoppers for so many years,” stated Israel Berry. “To be able to partner with them to bring this evening to audiences is a special treat. It’s going to be great!”
 
Tour dates for the A Night To Remember tour can be found at www.TheHoppers.com as well as their regularly scheduled appearances.
 
Multi-award winning family group The Hoppers – known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music – have been singing to global audiences for over 55 years with appearances ranging from presidential religious inaugural ceremonies and New York’s Carnegie Hall to singing conventions and church platforms. They have performed throughout the United States as well as in Israel, Europe and Africa. Their unique blend of harmonies and song choices have created a legacy of musical excellence embraced by leading pastors and event organizers. Known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music, they are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings frequently land near the top of the BILLBOARD sales charts and The Singing News radio charts.
 
In 2012, the group was inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame alongside Aretha Franklin, Ricky Skaggs, Love Song, Rex Humbard, and Dallas Holm.
 
Comprised today of family members Claude & Connie, son Dean and his wife, Kim, and son Mike Hopper, The Hoppers were formed in 1957 in the rural-farm town of Madison, NC, and have grown continuously for decades, touching countless lives around the world. A cancer survivor, Connie has been honored with the prestigious Marvin Norcross Award, in addition to numerous industry and fan honors; and she has been inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Sons Dean and Mike have continued the family legacy with their musical talents and business abilities; and Kim, Dean’s wife, hails from her own nationally acclaimed musical family, The Greenes.  She is noted for the excitement she brings to any live performance, and her unmistakable, rafter-ringing soprano vocals have taken The Hoppers to new heights for many years.
 
The Hoppers are celebrating over 5 DECADES of music excellence – don’t miss this chance to catch America’s favorite family of Gospel music, THE HOPPERS!
