Mansion Entertainment Signs The Penny Loafers.

Brentwood, TN (Mansion Entertainment) November 10th, 2010 – Mansion Entertainment has signed The Penny Loafers to the Mansion Record label.
In the time The Penny Loafers have been together, they have gained a loyal following, appealing to young and old alike through a blend of musical styles and tight a cappella harmonies. From 50’s Doo-Wop to Contemporary and Southern gospel, The Penny Loafers’ repertoire includes a healthy dose of original material and fresh arrangements of traditional favorites. Add some impressive vocal calisthenics and you have the “Loafer Style,” a unique, crowd-pleasing sound that has frequently earned The Penny Loafers a standing ovation at their performances.
The group was formed in 1985 when four Berea College students sang an a cappella arrangement of “Happy Trails” for a campus talent show. For several years the group existed only as a hobby as members came and went. In the fall of 1989, the Loafers decided that it was time to go on the road full-time. The Penny Loafers have enjoyed performing across the country for churches, youth and social events, universities, arts series, corporate banquets, and convention general sessions. Each of the group members serves churches in pastoral ministry and music ministry.
In 2010, the group is celebrating 25 years of loafin’ together. The current group consists of Alan Pike (bass), Larry Nichols (baritone), Kevin Slemp (2nd tenor) and Michael Hunt (1st tenor) have been singing together since 1994.
Bill Traylor of Mansion Records commented, “In all my years of meeting new artists, I have never experienced a moment of surprise as I did when I first heard The Penny Loafers.  Unique is an understatement.  Incredible harmonies combined with humor and quality vocals, The Penny Loafers present the Gospel in clear and a completely fresh musical style.”
A new single from The Penny Loafers is currently shipping to radio on the Mansion Radio Hits Volume 2 compilation entitled, “Jesus, You’re So Wonderful”. A new project from the group is scheduled for release in 2011. For more information regarding The Penny Loafers or Mansion Entertainment visit
