Grammy Nominated Southern Gospel Group Will Perform in Lafayette, 3/12/16

The Dixie Melody Boys
Below is edited from last Sunday's OA News. The group is kind of a big deal, having existed since 1961 (Wikipedia) and sort of having schooled a host of successful artists in the Southern gospel genre. The venue does not have a website that I can find, and I can't see anywhere if there's an admission charge. Here's a number to call: 334-332-8533. There's sort of an event page here on the group's website.

The Southern gospel quartet The Dixie Melody Boys (website) will be performing at 6:00 pm on Saturday, March 12, 2016, at the Union Hill Community Center, 7524 County Road 53, LaFayette, Alabama. Based in Kinston, NC, the quartet has received a Grammy nomination and numerous Fan Award nominations from "The Singing News Magazine," a Southern gospel music fan and trade publication. The quartet, led by 50-year veteran and recent Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame inductee Ed O'Neal, has had more than 20 top-40 hits, including eight Top-10 releases and a No. 1 single. -from the Opelika-Auburn News, March 5, 2016
