I do not have a lot of details on this year’s event, but I do know that it will once again be held at the Chester Fritz Auditorium on Saturday, July 16, from 9 am ’til 6 pm. This is the fifth year running for the day-long free-will offering event that features some of the region’s gospel groups
Once again, one of the biggest names headlining the event is the Todd Allen Family, based out of Branson, Missouri (but technically live on their bus 24/7/365). Todd and his wife Michelle have eight children. Their oldest son Caleb was a first-place finisher at the NQC Talent Search in 2000. Todd and the three oldest sons made an appearance on the NQC mainstage last September.
Also appearing at the 5th Annual GFGS will be Master’s Call Quartet, based out of Fosston, Minnesota. This will be their third time singing at the event. Another regional quartet performing will be The Overtones Quartet, based out of Roseau, Minnesota.
For more details on the setup of the event, here is a writeup from last year’s event.
If you are in the area and have some free time, come support these regional groups at this fine event. I plan to be there at least part of the time, and hopefully I’ll get a chance to shoot some video highlights from the day. Maybe one day in the future we can get The Garms Family booked…
