Florida Boys

The Florida Boys are a celebrated Southern gospel group that was formed originally by J.G. Whitfield in 1947 as the Gospel Melody Quartet. By 1955, the Melody Quartet was gone and the Florida Boys were on the scene to stay -- and stay. Some of the early members were lead Les Beasley, baritone and guitarist Glen Allred, tenor Allen Cox, bassist Gene McDonald, and pianist Derrell Sewart. After some personnel changes, members included lead Josh Garner, Tommy Watwood, bassist Buddy Liles, and tenor Jerry Trammell.

In the mid-'60s, the gospel group became the first to have its own syndicated television program, the Gospel Singing Jubilee, that played nationwide. The show won many awards, including a number of esteemed Dove Awards. Over the 50-plus years of it's career, the Florida Boys have recorded numerous albums, including Brand New, A Taste of Heaven, Reaching Out, Gospel Gold, Home Once Again, and others. From the full-length recordings have come a number of hits, like "Lead Me to the Altar," "When He Was on the Cross, I Was on His Mind," "Standing on the Solid Rock," and "I Lean on You Lord." The group has been inducted into the Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame and appeared on popular television programs such as Crooke & Chase, The Today Show, and TNN's Prime Time Country.

By the year 2000, this old-time Southern gospel group showed no signs of giving up the ghost any time soon and were still touring over 200 days a year. ~ Charlotte Dillon, Rovi

I met the Florida Boys in the early 50's and have been listening to them ever since. They're number 1 in my book. All thru the years they have had great singers, great musicians and all have great families, It takes a lot of dedcation to travel as many mile a year as they did. Even now that the original members have reired, they all still make a contribution to Gopsel music.
First met the Florida Boys at Dollywood. The new Florida Boys just don't have the same sound.
Nothing helps a broken heart like listen to the Lords Gospel music. Don't you think. I just like Karen Peck and New River, and Ivan Parker and so many mork Praise the Lord!!!

the Florida Boys singing "When He was on the cross I was on his Mind" Can not be beat. Thats the whole Bible in a nutshell. If you can get the mesage of that song you have achieved your purpose.
Adoro estas canciones.
murray72
luv dat bass!!!!!
They all very spirtual & humble men with loving & kind families. Just an all-
around enjoyable group of people to hear & be blessed by.
THEY ARE SIMPLY THE BEST I used to work with them @ the Plee-zing Gro. & variety store on T-Street in Pensacola. Them and their families are just a perfect example of God's goodness. They are so talented and kind.
I've known these guys and their famlies for 40 years and they are all just as nice as can be. ( God) didn't make any better or nicer or more talented. JUST SIMPLY THE BEST PERIOD.

Charlotte, you have your facts wrong. Tenor Allen Cox and Bass Gene McDonald were not early members of the Florida Boys. They were part of the group in the '90's. And the correct term is Bass not Bassist.
I love Southern Gospel Music. Quartet style is my favorite. The Florida boys are one of my favorite groups. I have been listening to them for many years.

I first heard the Florida Boys at my Grandpa's house. We used to stop and get them on our way to church and he would always have the Gospel Jubilee on the TV. I grew up sharing my Grandpa's love for quartet music and still love it some years later!
I really like the Flordia Boys and also this song. They have a special way of singing the song as they do other songs. I always listen to gospel songs. Not contemperary . I pretty much grew up with the Blackwood Brothers and J.D. I did not have the privilegde of meeting this group but sure would have loved to.
I have listened this kind of Music all my lfe. It number 1.
