ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Grammy Nominated Gospel Hummingbirds

Biography

The Gospel Hummingbirds are synonymous with tight harmony, creating outstanding inspirational music with urban rhythm and blues. James Gibson, Jr., spokesperson for the group, coined their style as “Rhythm and Gospel”. R&G for short. Audiences from all over the world have marveled at the way the Hummingbirds effortlessly bring them to an inspirational frenzy, leaving them clamoring for more.

To see these musicians on stage is an experience you’ll never forget. This show begins with the band setting the tone for the show with music that gets your audience rocking. Then the vocalists hit the stage with soulful sounds that leave no doubt that you are in for a treat. In no time the Gospel Hummingbirds will have you clapping your hands, dancing in the isles, and maybe even singing along. In the end, you will be exhausted but thoroughly entertained.

Joe Thomas, Sr. founded the “Birds in the early 1960’s. Soon they became known all over the world as one of the most elite musical groups in their field. Since their inception they have recorded six albums. “Route 66 To Heaven”, “Signs of Revelations”, “Steppin’ Out”, “Taking Flight”, “Live In Paradise” and their latest compilation, "Life Songs". In 1993, The Gospel Hummingbirds album “Steppin Out” earned them a Grammy Nomination in the category of “Best Traditional Soul Gospel Album”. That same year it received the
French “Jazz Academy Award” as best gospel album of the year.

Although they started singing in the “Church” ( and they still do), in 1987 they were invited to perform at the famous Eli’s Mile High Club, a blues nightclub in Oakland, Ca. Since then they have successfully taken their music to rock, blues and R&B fans in nightclubs, blues and jazz festivals here in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Japan, Italy, France, and Belgium. The group has shared the bill with; The Five Blind Boys of Alabama, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, The Dixie Hummingbirds, John Lee Hooker, Little Milton, B.B. King, Etta James, The Persuasions, Commissioned, Huey Lewis and The News, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Pop Staples, Otis Rush, and Joe Louis Walker.

Over the years, as with any group with longevity, there have been personnel changes. The current Gospel Hummingbirds are; James Gibson,Jr. vocals, Morris LeGrande guitar and vocals, Gerald Dayce vocals, William Norwood lead vocals and Clifton Gamble keyboards and vocals. Somehow with each personnel change, they just keep getting better.

Billboard Magazine has spoken of their music as “Not just for sacred music lover, but for anyone with an abiding interest in great roots sounds”. Downbeat Magazine says “ This is a must-listen for folks who still equate heavenly music with harps and wings”.

It has been suggested that they perform other kinds of music, but The Gospel Hummingbirds remain true to their Faith and true to “R&G”.
