GVB posts footage from video taping

A couple of weeks ago, the new 5-member lineup of the Gaither Vocal Band recorded a live video in San Antonio. We’re still months out from the release, but they have just posted a 2-minute 15-second preview:

(edit: Unfortunately, they have since pulled the preview down)

  1. Oh those DVD’s are going to be AWESOME! no doubt about it I am getting giddy about seeing these guys live at NQC, I really hope I can make it to the Thursday Showcase…

  2. They sound great!!! Just a question, but does anybody else find it distracting that Michael chews gum when he sings. You can plainly see it in this short video. Is there a reason he does that? Dry mouth, etc.

    • He said in an interview that I read once that it was because he had a problem with a dry mouth.

      • I sure do prefer the gum to seeing group members reaching for water bottles on stage.

  3. Michael has been chewing gum on stage for years. He did it during his first stint with the GVB.

  4. Yay, you put it up!

    I cannot tell you how incredible “I Believe in a Hill Called Mt. Calvary” was. David Phelps sang the first verse instead of Mark Lowry but the most memorable part was Michael English’s second verse. Oh my Lord it was awesome! The audience was on their feet the moment he opened his mouth.

    And this little 2 min clip doesn’t touch the unbelievable performances that are to come.

  5. Yeah….I’m gonna be wearing those dvds out once I get them! 🙂 Thanks for posting this, Daniel!

  6. I absolutely CANNOT WAIT for this release.

    (BTW Daniel, I hate to plug myself, but I started a new SG blog. Its linked to my name.)

    • Welcome to the blogosphere! I just added the RSS feed to my Google Reader subscriptions. 🙂

  7. I must admit they are good but my opinion is that a senior should
    be in the backgroud and let the youth sing…The GVB is not the
    same without MARSHALL HALL and GUY PENROD…I hope I did not offend anyone but this my opinion and I know that I may get
    some flack so have fun with your comments…I still love you all and my JESUS bless you…Joe Sahadi

    • I believe that everyone will agree with you that it’s not the same. Get different singers and it’s a guarantee that things will be a little different.

      Some people will prefer the old lineup, others the new. And many of us will like both. 🙂

  8. It is why Ernie Haase & Signature Sound Quartet is an excellent match for the Gaither’s Tour.
    EH&SSQ attracts the younger crowds and the newly designed Gaither Vocal Band has a very strong young in heart base.
    In baseball, they call it a twi-night doubleheader.
    Gaither’s twi-night doubleheader is alot more exciting.
    By the way, the only baseball I like is the Boston Red Sox’s brand.

  9. Is it just me, or do they seem more relaxed? Go back and watch the clips with Terry Franklin singing tenor… They seem like they are that relaxed.

  10. I drove from Pensacola to San Antonio just to see this concert. It was worth every mile. What a concert. It has been a long time since I worshiped that much at an event. They were outstanding. This clip doesn’t touch what all took place that night. I CAN’T WAIT!

  11. Amazon has clips of the new GVB Reunited album up.

  12. Again I am speaking out of turn but what I saw of the 2min clip a
    awfull amount of theatrics that didn’t appear in the G.V.B when
    my all time favorites Marshall Hall, Guy Penrod and Wes Hampton
    performed…The stage presence,in my opinion,was lacking and Bill
    should have been in the rear resting…Joe Sahadi
