Summer Concerts You Shouldn't Miss!!!!

Suwannee River Jubilee
June 14-16, 2007
Live Oak, Florida

This year's Suwannee River Jubilee(SRJ) marks the 20th gathering of this event, and it's promising to be the largest SRJ EVER!!! "SOLD OUT" is becoming a common phrase associated with this years event as EVERY full hookup campsite is SOLD OUT!! And...EVERY cabin and duplex is SOLD OUT!!! We still have plenty of water/electric only campsites still available but they are going fast! We've checked in with the local hotels and they too are SOLD OUT or nearly SOLD OUT!!! I can't tell you how excited we are to see this kind of response to the SRJ. We knew you folks loved southern gospel music and you're proving it over and over! There are still plenty of tickets available. If we run out of tickets, we'll order more!! We plan on cramming as many people as we can into that ampitheatre as possible! Below I'm going to recap the talent line-ups as well as ticket and camping information.

Be sure and make your plans now for the Fall Jubilee which will be held on October 4-6, 2007, and will feature the Dixie Echoes all 3 nights, as well as the Mark Trammell Trio, Squire Parsons Trio, and our good friends the Dixie Melody Boys!!

Pensacola Homecoming
J.G. Whitfield Memorial Sing
Marcus Pointe Baptist Church
Pensacola, Florida
June 22, 2007

J.G. Whitfield began his singing career in 1944. In 1947, he organized and managed the Gospel Melody Quartet which became known as The Florida Boys. "Whit" sang bass and managed the group until 1958, when he retired. Shortly thereafter, however, he formed the Dixie Echoes, once again singing bass and managing one of Southern Gospel's most active groups. Whitfield's association with the Florida Boys and Dixie Echoes led him into new territory as a promoter of Gospel sings throughout the South. He promoted his first gospel concert in Carnegie Hall in 1963 and became one of the largest promoters in the country. He is the founder of the Singing News. In 1969 and 1970 he received the Gospel Music Association's Dove Award for "Best Gospel Disc Jockey". He is a Charter member of the Gospel Music Association, served on the original Board of Directors, and served on Board of Directors as the Promoter Representative. He was also a prominent player in the origins of the popular television series, The Gospel Singing Jubilee, which served to launch the careers of many of today's top artists. The Southern Gospel magazine, Singing News, was another of Whit's contributions, organized in 1969 to promote his many concerts across the country.

Dale Shelnut Day
Oak Grove High School Auditorium
Bessemer, Alabama
June 23, 2007

Dale Lawrence Shelnut
1935 - 1983

Inducted 2001 - Southern Gospel Music Association Hall Of Fame

Few individuals ever sang a Gospel Song with the innate feeling of Dale Shelnut.

Born July 29, 1935, just outside Guin, Alabama, Dale began his career in 1951 with the formation of the Rhythm Masters. In 1960 he joined the Tennesseeans Quartet but he became best known as lead singer for the Dixie Echoes and as a regularly featured soloist on the Gospel Singing Jubilee television program.

Always a crowd favorite, Dale took control of the Dixie Echoes in the late 1960s and for the next fifteen years kept them atop the industry as one of Southern Gospel's finest quartets. He passed away suddenly in 1983 but not before making an irreversible contribution to the heart and soul of Southern Gospel.
