CALIFORNIA MELODY BOYS
The California Melody Boys (from Tulare, CA) was formed in February of 2003. Starting out as a quartet, they soon transformed themselves into a trio. In just short period of time, that trio become a well recognized part of the southern gospel music family on the west coast. CMB are dedicated members of two music associations; the Central California Southern Gospel Music Association and the Western States Gospel Music Association. After joining these associations, they began regular participation in the annual Great Western Fan Festival currently held in Visalia, California. CMB focuses on delivery of the gospel of Jesus Christ through southern style harmonies. The California Melody Boys are proud of the southern gospel music heritage and continue to help promote, preserve, and develop the southern gospel music style throughout the Western Region of the United States.
The Casey Family is a Southern Gospel music group based out of Riverdale, California. They travel every summer and minister through song and testimony in many churches from California to Tennessee. They also sing in many local churches in Central California throughout the year. The Casey Family has been asked to perform at the Great Western Fan Festival hosted by The Hoppers for the last few years as an artist for the “Best of the West Showcase.” For the past five years the Casey’s have attended a music school hosted by Steve Hurst. The school provides an amazing week of encouragement and a learning for the Casey Family. They are able to meet and perform with many Southern Gospel artists such as The Erwins, Tribute Quartet, The Talley Trio, The Perrys, The Hoppers, and more. Not only are some of these artists their instructors during the classes, but they have become friends. Many ministry opportunities have come from their attendance at The Steve Hurst School of Music. The Casey family does not only travel and sing, but they are very active in their local church ministries.
