CATHEDRALS FAMILY REUNION SELECT TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on April 22, 2014 – 8:53 am -

CatRApril 22, 2013 (Nashville, TN) – Today IMC Management, in association with Showcase Management, announced plans for the Cathedrals Family Reunion Tour in select cities. Due to the overwhelming response to the original event held in Dallas, TX in November 2013, organizers have planned for six special weekends during 2014 and 2015 that will place the event within 500 miles of most of the population of the United States.

It all kicks off where it all began, in Akron, Ohio – the birthplace of the Cathedral Quartet. The Akron Civic Center will welcome Cathedral aficionados November 7-8, 2014 as Danny Funderburk, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound, Greater Vision, Legacy Five, and the Mark Trammell Quartet, once again, join together to honor the legacy of the Cathedral Quartet.

Today Scott Fowler, Danny Funderburk, Ernie Haase, Mark Trammell and Gerald Wolfe made the special announcement in a video from the Younce family home in Akron.

 

As with the original event, each weekend will focus on celebrating the legacy of the iconic Cathedral Quartet, featuring music from each of the current artists as well as the very special Cathedrals Family Reunion quartet. 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.

In addition to the tour, a preview of the Cathedrals Family Reunion event will take place during a special matinee performance at the 2014 NQC in Pigeon Forge, TN this September.

Tickets for the hometown weekend in Akron, OH will go on sale April 28, 2014 at 10:00 AM EST. More information can be found online at www.CathedralsFamilyReunion.com

Written by SGN Scoops on April 16, 2014 – 6:59 am -

stowtowntaylersStowNASHVILLE, TN (April 15, 2014) – On Monday, StowTown Records expanded its already impressive artist roster by signing The Taylors, the Singing News 2013 Favorite New Mixed Group of the Year.  
StowTown Records co-founders Ernie Haase and Wayne Haun celebrated their new partnership with The Taylors—Jonathan, Suzanne, Christopher, and Leslie—during a signing event at the offices of Provident/Sony Distribution.

Ernie Haase has been anticipating the opportunity to introduce the young artists to an even wider audience. “The Taylors are a talented vocal group who have that ‘sibling thing’ that is hard to describe or deny. To see these brothers and sisters—all in their early 20’s—perform together is something to behold. I think everyone will hear what we first heard in The Taylors—passionate, tender voices blending into glorious overtones of a
heavenly sound. You are going to love The Taylors!” Jonathan Taylor expressed his excitement about The Taylors being welcomed into the StowTown family of artists. “We’ve been so impressed by Ernie always wanting to do his best in everything he’s been called to do. We look forward to seeing how God uses this new relationship to spread our music to unexpected places!”
The Taylors’ new recording, “Measure of Grace,” is expected to release on June 10, 2014, to Christian retail stores nationwide, as well as digital outlets. Their first single from the project will be shipped to radio soon, in anticipation of another successful climb up the charts.

StowTown Records and Lifeway Christian Stores Host The Perrys “Into His Presence” CD Release Party

Written by SGN Scoops on April 10, 2014 – 3:09 pm -

NASHVILLE, TN (April 10, 2014) – The Perrys kicked off their debut StowTown Records project, “Into His Presence,” with a memorable CD release party at the LifeWay Christian store in Hendersonville, TN.perrys
The hometown crowd was treated to a live performance of new songs, including their first single, “I Can Trust Him,” now gaining attention at radio. Libbi Perry Stuffle updated the audience on the miracle of Tracy Stuffle’s recovery from a stroke, and then invited her husband to sing his new duet, “Three Men on a Mountain,” with their son, Jared. Those attending were moved by the clear testimony of God’s grace over the past fourteen months, but they were also blessed with an unexpected bonus — many well-placed humorous comments from Tracy during the festivities, resulting in laughter and applause from the crowd. The Perrys topped off the celebration by sharing cake and conversation with the fans, as well as autographing the new CD.
Into His Presence” is now available at Christian retail stores everywhere through Provident Distribution, in addition to online outlets, including the “New and Noteworthy” section on iTunes. This recording represents a fresh chapter for The Perrys, the legendary family group which formed around the piano on Christmas Day in 1970. The 11-song CD reflects their new partnership with StowTown Records.
