Mark Trammell Quartet

For over forty years Mark Trammell has been blessed to sing Gospel Music. Something he says, "evolved from a dream to a life's call; from just singing to ministry." Many long time observers and followers of Gospel Music consider him to be one the greatest baritone singers of all time. He has won multiple awards as a singer and producer, and has been a member of four of Gospel Music's most acclaimed groups - The Kingsmen, The Cathedrals, Greater Vision and Gold City. For most people, just being with one of these legendary groups would be the pinnacle of a career and justification for resting on your laurels. But for Mark now is not the time to kick back and relax. Instead, it is time to step into a fresh mission that focuses on evangelism through the seamless integration of Gospel Music and preaching - The Mark Trammell Quartet. If surrounding yourself with the right people is one of the keys of success, then Mark Trammell might be considered a 'master locksmith'. Since he was 15 years old, Mark has literally been surrounded by and sung with some of the most respected men in Southern Gospel Music including Ray Shelton, Eldridge Fox, Jim Hamill, Squire Parsons, Ray Reece, Tim Riley, Glen Payne, and George Younce.

Sawyer Brown

SHAYNE HILL Shayne Hill is the not-so-new "new guy." Shayne joined the band in June of 2004-after rehearsing with the band once. Once. Yes-he was that good. Shayne grew up on the road playing music. His family had a band and they toured all across the Western U.S.-with Shayne playing even more instruments than he does today. But no-he will not play fiddle for you. We've already asked him. Once moving to Nashville, Shayne toured with Chely Wright, Avalon, and LeAnn Rimes, just to name a few. He is also an in-demand background singer and guitar player. And since he needs just a little bit more to do, he has his own recording studio-where he can be found whenever one of his kids isn't crying�and sometimes even when they are. Shayne and his wife Kristin have two children, Jesse and Harper-they are cute like their mama. JOE SMYTH Joe Smyth never met a percussive instrument he didn't like-and he can play them all. The band's original bio stated that Joe played 300 percussive instruments-a number that Hobie made up, but still swears by. Joe is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music and earned a Master's Degree in Music from the University of Miami-but he doesn't rub that in the other guys' faces. That speaks volumes about him. In addition to being a sought-after session drummer, Joe is accomplished symphonic musician, as well. He has played with the Nashville Symphony, including at their heralded appearance at Carnegie Hall. Joe is also a respected percussion instructor, doing his part to nurture the next generation of drummers and percussionists. Joe is the proud dad of Tristan, Jenna, and Bryce. GREGG HUBBARD Gregg "Hobie" Hubbard was born and raised in Apopka, Florida-The Indoor Foliage Capitol of the World. So there. There was never a time Hobie can remember that he wasn't listening to-and by listening we mean obsessed with-music. He grew up attached to the radio and record player-and is still rarely very far from either one today�although the record player looks more like an ipod these days. Hobie sang and played piano in church through his high school years and began writing songs when he was in college. He has co-written several of Sawyer Brown's hits, including "The Dirt Road," "Drive Me Wild," "'Round Here," and "Outskirts of Town," as well as several songs on the Sawyer Brown Christmas albums. In addition to Sawyer Brown, Hobie has sung background on recording sessions for a variety of artists. Hobie gave up a promising career in the food services industry to join the band. He might or might not still have the smock. MARK MILLER Mark Miller was born in Ohio, but moved to Florida when he was in eighth grade. Growing up, he played basketball, went to the beach, worked at Walt Disney World, and went to school-pretty much in that order. He was on the basketball team at the University of Central Florida when he started writing songs, finally deciding to move to Nashville to focus on singing and songwriting. The move worked out okay. Mark has written many of Sawyer Brown's hits, including "Step That Step," "The Walk," "Thank God for You," "The Boys and Me," as well as the band's anthem: "Some Girls Do." Mark discovered the band Casting Crowns and has produced all of the band's CDs, winning a Grammy for his work with them along the way. In April 2013, "Ring the Bell," a movie that Mark wrote and produced, was released-and he has more movies in the pre-production stage. He doesn't sleep much. Mark and his wife Lisa have two children-Madison and Gunnar. They own their daddy. MARK MILLER Mark Miller was born in Ohio, but moved to Florida when he was in eighth grade.

Mark and his wife Lisa have two children-Madison and Gunnar. They own their daddy. JIM SCHOLTEN Jim Scholten plays all the low notes-always has, always will. We're all good with that. Jim began playing music when he was just a kid-which makes sense, considering that his mom was a music teacher. It should be noted that he often played his music louder than his mom would have like him to-it should also be noted that that did not stop him. Jim played in bands throughout his home state of Michigan prior to moving to Nashville. He tells us that we are his favorite band, though-and we believe him. Jim's got an honest face. Jim plays bass on numerous recording sessions every year-and still makes time to play in the praise band in his church when he's home. We think he tries not to play too loud in church. Jim is the proud father of Nick and Anna-who should really think about forming their own band. They've got game.

The Browns-Celtic Experience

Join the Browns for a Celtic Music Celebration, a fast paced show with fiddle jigs and reels, Celtic step dancing, and beautiful vocal harmonies. Hear favorites like "Danny Boy", "You Raise Me Up", "Amazing Grace", "Lord of The Dance", and more! This is a show you won't want to miss, as a taste of Ireland comes to The Blue Gate Theater in Shipshewana , IN. It's truly a family affair when The Browns hit the stage with their gospel music. The musical stylings of Shelly, Michaela, Adam, and Andrew exude excitement on the stage and offer a life-changing experience to all who hear them. The Browns deliver the powerful message of the gospel through word and song that engage audiences of all ages. The Browns have been touring across the United States since the group began its full-time ministry fifteen years ago. The heralded group began on the local and state level and has expanded and grown into a national touring group. This year The Browns received the prestigious honor of Top 10 Mixed Group of the Year four years in a row. "This honor is very rewarding coming from the fans and knowing that we've touched their hearts in some way." Previously, The Browns had been awarded the Top Horizon Group of the Year for 3 consecutive years. The group has just finished their newest recording, "Aim Higher" as a StowTown Recording artist, with Dove Award winning producer, Wayne Haun. The Browns newest radio single "Aim Higher" is climbing the charts. Even when they're not on stage or on tour, the Browns manage to stay plenty busy on their farm property west of LeMars, Iowa, which has served to become somewhat of haven for the family away from the road. Adam says, "We enjoy life at home. There's just something about being in the country. I've always enjoyed it". Andrew, the self-proclaimed life of the party, said touring on the road can get a little crazy, but he's been able to put things into perspective. "I'm thankful for what I'm doing," he said. "I think it's a special thing that we do." To add to the family experience, Shelly's husband Keith is the chief bus driver and sound technician. "Because we know we're called, it's been worth it all. God has opened the doors and there are adventures and blessings behind each one." From singing over 30 shows at the Americana Theatre in Branson, MO, to Dollywood Theme park stages, to singing on over 10 Royal Carribean and Carnival cruise ships this award winning family will inspire you with their close-knit family harmony and talent. The Browns love what they do, love each other, and the audiences to whom they sing!

At the heart of most success stories lies a framework of brand invention, the creation of a persona or x-factor that raises an artist above the noise. But for pop vocal group Anthem Lights, it's reinvention that's catapulted the talented foursome to over 147 million YouTube views and 1.4 million monthly listeners on streaming services. The indie group's success is due in large part to the foursome's vocal prowess (Caleb Grimm, Chad Graham, Spencer Kane and Joey Stamper are all exceptional singers), creative mash-ups and reinventions of pop hits and beloved hymns. "I think the most unique thing about us is that we do all kinds of music," shares Graham. "We do everything from a hymns medley to a Drake cover to a year-end mash-up. Our musical diversity is our identity." Anthem Lights maintains a large digital presence, primarily reaching their audience via video and streaming, without relying on the traditional arms of radio and touring. Instead, they work with a team they've personally assembled to write, produce, record and direct, making it easier to put out more content more often. "We're all over the place," says Grimm. "We're a pop group that reimagines other people's songs and creates unique arrangements. We also compose our own songs. We kind of run the gamut. And we never record a cover song without also creating a video." While fans of most pop groups have to wait up to two years for new content from their favorite artists, Anthem Lights produces a wide variety of new covers, original songs and video content every month, a perfected mix that keeps their fans engaged. "We made a vow a long time ago to be the most consumer-oriented band in the music industry," says Grimm. "Our fans, who have named themselves 'Lightbulbs,' are rabid and passionate for all-things Anthem Lights. They are the reason we're able to continue making music so prolifically. "The group's video content isn't flashy. You won't see high-priced sets with a complicated storyline and multiple costume changes. What you will see are clean, stylized shots of the guys singing their hits in front of a simple backdrop, focusing on the strength of their harmonies and the familiarity of the songs. It's a formula that works, most videos boasting over one million views and a flood of positive comments. While their focus remains digital, connecting daily with their 1.3 million Facebook fans, the group does perform live when the right opportunity arises, sharing the stage with Natalie Grant, Newsboys, Steven Curtis Chapman and more. With soaring harmonies, reinvention of hit songs and focused fan interaction, Anthem Lights has quickly become the go-to group for music fans of all ages

Jeff Foxworthy

Showtimes: 1:00pm & 8:00pm | Doors 1 hour prior to show. Prices: Tickets Only - $44.95-124.95 | Dinner and Theater - $63.95-143.95 This Concert will be held at the Blue Gate Performing Arts Center This show on sale Nov 22nd, 2019 at 10am! Jeff Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country. He is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and best selling author of more than twenty-six books. Widely known for his redneck jokes, his act goes well beyond that to explore the humor in everyday family interactions and human nature, a style that has been compared to Mark Twain's. . He's hosted or starred in five TV series and was also a part of one of the most successful comedy tours of all time, The Blue Collar Comedy Tour. And let's not forget he's given rednecks more jokes than they know what to do with... Jeff has excelled as a comic, an author, and a TV personality for over 25 years. He has made more people laugh than anyone on earth, but at the heart of it, Jeff Foxworthy is a guy. Born and raised in Atlanta, Jeff worked hard to be a great comedian, worked hard to marry up (and he did), and is still working hard to take care of his daughters. Jeff is just a guy. So don't be mad that his jokes are better than yours. Jeff might be one of the funniest guys on the planet, but he is passionate about the outdoors. He loves to hunt and spend time in the outdoors every spare minute on his Georgia farm. Foxworthy Outdoors puts this obsession for hunting and fishing into motion through webisodes, licensed products, and a good excuse to climb into a tree stand. Jeff Foxworthy's background as a comedian serves him well as host of Game Show Network's The American Bible Challenge. Setting records in its first season, the Bible-themed game show is a competition where contestants play to win money for their favorite charity. The competition can be fierce, but Foxworthy's laidback, clean and country-style comedy eases the tension among players and also makes the show more entertaining for those viewing the show at home. Dirt on My Shirt is a book of poems for children written by Jeff Foxworthy that uses humor and rhyme to engage with children. Foxworthy seeks out his inner child to produce a humorous and enjoyable book for children of all ages. A parody of the popular Christmas song "The 12 Days of Christmas," Jeff Foxworthy's "12 Days of Redneck Christmas" provides a glimpse into how rednecks celebrate Christmas. As he counts down from 12 packs of Bud to two huntin' dogs and some parts to a Mustang GT, Foxworthy has had listeners laughing and singing along to the holiday hit since 1995.
