Landrum First Baptist Church hosts the Florida Boys for a love offering concert on Friday, Nov. 18 at 7 p.m.
For more than 60 years, The Florida Boys has been a quartet in Southern Gospel Music. In July 2007, Les Beasley, Glen Allred and Derrell Stewart decided to retire and sang the last song together as The Florida Boys at the National Quartet Convention in Louisville, Ky. These three passed the microphone to the present group to continue.
The present group consists of Charlie Waller singing lead. He serves as the executive director of the Southern Gospel Music Association and has been inducted into the hall of fame located at Dollywood.
Paul Hyde has been singing bass for 25 years with various groups, most recently Won by One and the Blackwoods. The baritone of the Florida Boys is Chip Cooper. Cooper has performed on the Dove Broadcasting Network, TCT Network, INSP Network and the Jimmy Snow Network. The tenor is Eddie Broome. Broome sang with the Dixie Echoes, Palmetto State Quartet and the Trav’lers of Greenville, S.C. He was recently inducted into the South Carolina Gospel Music Hall of Fame.
