Many folks will remember K.C. Armstrong from his time singing bass with The PromisedLand Quartet and his appearances at NQC with the U.S. Army Chorus singing the National Anthem. Now as he is preparing to retire from the Army and moving back to Tennessee, he is also preparing for the launch of a brand new quartet named King’s Cadence that will be based in the Chattanooga area.
According to their website, “King’s Cadence is a male ‘gospel-rooted’ quartet that has been a dream of KC Armstrong’s since 1994. As a Christ-centered ministry, their vision is to sing great songs to people who are yearning for GOOD NEWS, an encouraging word, or maybe just something to smile about! Each member has been singing gospel music with other groups for decades! All four men have had vocal training at the collegiate level and hold degrees in music. Collectively they bring years of experience and a variety of musical styles to the platform.”
The members of this new group are tenor Todd Gaither, lead Jay Craig, baritone Mark Tilley, and, of course, K.C. Armstrong at the bass position. I’ve been able to see a couple of pre-launch performances and I am absolutely looking forward to their official “Kick-Off” performance. It will be held on August 4, 2019, at 6:00 pm at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 8451 East Brainerd Road, Chattanooga, TN 37421, where Todd Gaither attends and has served for a number of years. Joining them on piano that evening will be Jason Duroy. They will also be featured at the morning worship service of the church at 9:30 am. A brand new CD will also be released that day.
As a lead-up to their official launch, K.C. has been releasing a monthly video on Facebook and YouTube. Here they are so you can have a preview.
I can tell you that this is a group that you will definitely want to be watching as they start touring. Keep up with their schedule here as new dates are added.
