Last October the Gospel Lights celebrated the group’s 55th anniversary at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in The Hill District of Pittsburgh.

Their sound is rooted in the southern gospel/soul sound of the sixties reminicent of the Peacock Records sound of that era. Their lineup features no less than three world class lead vocalists, and their onstage energy is legendary.

Their new CD “Won’t It Be Grand !”, Their 2nd release for Bonedog Records,” features fifteen tracks of live in the studio the ‘raising the roof’ bluesy gospel soul sound that they do BEST!
