The show is free and open to the public.
“We’re privileged to have a group with as much history as Scenic City,” said the Rev. Will Nichols, announcer and producer of the popular local music show. “Some of the biggest names in Southern Gospel music got their start with Ralph Keefe, founder of the Scenic City Quartet.”
Composed of Daniel Dennis, Casey Westra, Bill Brown and Keefe, the group is singing at venues and churches from Georgia to Michigan. They sing a variety of songs but tend to include many standards and crowd favorites in their concerts.
“Ralph has been a force in music for 50 years,” Nichols said. “He gave Anthony Berger his start, as well as Phil Cross. And, producer Gene Higgins of Nashville once sang with him, too.”
The Jubilee is a fast-paced, Opry-style show that features multiple performers and various styles of music. Regulars appearing on the Jubilee include Southern Gospel singer Amy McAlister, singer-songwriter Elmer Bramlett and the Cowboy Church Band and Chorale, Nichols said.
“The latest regular to be added to the cast is a multitalented musician, singer and songwriter, Danny O’Boyle,” revealed Nichols. “Danny adds a new dimension to the show.”
The Cowboy Gospel Jubilee is held at the Cleveland Cowboy Church in the Dockery Heights community at 3040 Blythe Road, off Dockery Lane, between Blue Springs and Blackburn roads. A love offering is taken.
