What are Meetinghouse Concerts all about?


Carol D. Fitzgerald

1946 - 2012

They’re Southern Gospel at its absolute best! It’s music with a message, music that lifts the spirit and touches the heart. If you think “church” can’t be fun, you need to come, just once, to taste and see what all the excitement is about. The personalities are warm, the passions are real, and the programs are exactly what we hoped they would be when we stepped out in faith to launch this venture in the summer of 2005.

Meetinghouse Concerts are a dream come true, born of a vision that began to take shape over our many years of attendance at the National Quartet Convention, first in Louisville, now in Pigeon Forge (see scrapbook link), Southern Gospel’s flagship event. So often, watching these groups draw thunderous ovations from jubilant crowds we would find ourselves thinking, “If only our friends back home could get a taste of what we’re experiencing now.”

That’s how it began, just wanting to share with others what meant so much to us. Give us a call if you have any questions. We look forward to having you join us, quite confident you’re going to be glad you came!

Celebrating our 16th year of sharing the message of 

Southern Gospel Music in the Boston area!

The Down East Boys is a name that is synonymous with Gospel Music. For over 30 years this quartet has traveled from coast to coast, Canada and Mexico. Starting in eastern North Carolina the group chose the name from that region called Down East. Although the name was associated with this small region it did not take long for this groups boundaries to expand. In just a few short years the group had their first chart song and was signed to a major recording contract by Sonlite records. Upon release of their second recording on the Sonlite records label the group was thrust into the mainstream of gospel music with a song titled “Beautiful Valley." For ten months this song remained in the top 40 of the Singing News chart and took the guys from a regional quartet to a sought after group all over the country. In 1990, riding the success of that song, the Down East Boys received the Horizon Group of the Year from the readers of the Singing News. Shortly after, with the demand for the group at an all time high, the guys began their journey into full time ministry.

Whether you have followed the music of the Lesters for years – or you’re just finding out about us for the very first time – we are so glad you’re here. We hope you will take a few minutes and catch up on the latest news of what God is doing through this ministry around the country.

Simply put, we love music. . . and we love introducing others to Jesus Christ through our music and personal ministry. It’s a passion that began with our grandparents, Harvey and Opal Lester, in 1925. And it’s one that has endured to the third, fourth and fifth generations. In fact, this year our family is celebrating eighty-eight wonderful years of sharing the Good News through Gospel music. And we’re more excited now than ever before!

One of our highest priorities is to remain real and relevant-never losing sight of the Message, but always challenging ourselves to elevate the sound and quality of our music in order to better reach today’s generation.

Jim and Melissa Brady

Jim & Melissa spent the first few years of their marriage traveling parallel paths while sharing similar gifts: both, coming from a heritage of musical families, loved the Lord and served Him well with great success in singing and songwriting.

One of the groups they sang with for nearly a decade was The Shulers, comprised of Melissa's own family. But then Jim was recruited to join The Booth Brothers who were on the threshhold of legendary popularity, soon topping all the charts in the world of Southern Gospel. Meanwhile Melissa continued writing and the two of them sang in churches whenever their schedules permitted.

But by 2014 they both felt drawn to combine their talents, putting together a schedule of their own. At first they created a trio, but then found their most effective music was a lot like their marriage, i.e., the two became as one.

They've been soaring ever since.

The Guardians

The Guardians had claimed their stake in Southern Gospel Music as one of America’s favorite Southern Gospel trios.  They’ve had many hit songs including their latest number one “Present in the Presence of the King.”  On March 5, 2018, this remarkable group made the announcement that legendary bass singer Pat Barker, whose magnetic personality is well known by fans and artists alike, would be joining the Group.  Guardians members Neil Uhrig, John Darin Rowsey, and Dean Hickman welcome Pat’s rich bass voice which perfectly compliments and rounds out this newly formed quartet.  Their collective mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and sing songs that minister to people’s hearts and touch their lives.  Founded in 1988, The Guardians’ music impacts listeners with their sincerity and commitment to glorifying the Savior they sing about.
