Gordon Mote joining EHSS…for summer, at least
For this summer (at least), Gaither Vocal Band / Gaither Homecoming tour pianist Gordon Mote will play piano for Ernie Haase and Signature Sound. Haase announced this in an email blast sent out today.
I am cautiously optimistic about this. I say “cautiously” because I have only one reservation: I would like to see Signature Sound continue the traditional Southern Gospel configuration of naming the pianist as a full-fledged member of the group, rather than just as a member of a band that may change every week.
I would not be disappointed to see Mote named Signature Sound’s permanent pianist; I just hope that they will ultimately end up with a permanent pianist as a full-fledged group member.
