For seven years now Bob and Joyce Spamer of Southern Gospel NY have been bringing in Gospel Concerts to the Rochester area. After many Great concerts they have found that people seem to love a Dinner/Concert Special.
In September 2016 they brought in a group from Virginia called PromiseLand Quartet. At the end of the concert there was one remark they heard over and over again, “When are you bringing them back?” Well they are returning to The Whittier Party House for a Dinner/Concert on November 4, 2017.
PromisedLand Quartet was formed in January 2000 with a goal of touring (1) week-end a month. That lasted for about (3) months and the rest is history.
Traveling and working over 120 dates per year this group has won the hearts of thousands. Their off stage love, and accessibility, both too, and for the folks that come to their concerts, is one of the things that people seem to appreciate most. Their desire to provide the finest in quality music while effectively ministering to the lost, and hurting, is truly the objective in each and every concert.
The group has enjoyed radio & chart success with songs like: Brand New Heart, In the Morning, Crown Him King, Gods Word Will Stand, & Carved in Stone.
In 2008 “PromisedLand Quartet” was honored with a Dove Award consideration in the category of Southern Gospel album of the year for their project entitled “Carved in Stone.”
Most recently the group has appeared on Christian TV via the Daystar Network, NRB Network, World Harvest, and Gospel Music Television, making multiple appearances on “Great American Gospel” & “Great American Gospel Onstage.” In 2015 PromisedLand Quartet was honored to appear on the Main Stage of the National Quartet Convention in Pigeon Forge, TN.
The group consist of 5 guys:
Lead Vocalist: Gene Hamman is a founding member of PromisedLand Quartet and has been involved with Christian music for over 30-years. He also enjoys hunting, fishing, sports, and spending time with his family. Gene & his wife Amy have been married for almost 27-years. They, along with their 3 sons, Chad, Trevor, and Zachary, reside in Edinburg, VA.
Bass Vocalist: KC Armstrong is 40-years-old and is originally from Mt. Holly, NC. KC is blessed with an amazing bass voice and utilizes that gift not only with PromisedLand Quartet, but as a member of the World Renowned United States Army Male Chorus, where he is Active Duty. He received his higher education at East Tennessee State University and Western Carolina University. KC resides in Winchester, VA with his wife Chara and their 3 children, Brogan, Adeline, and Calvin.
Tenor Vocalist: Joey Wilson is a preacher’s son and has been involved in church ministry his whole life. He studied music at East Coast Bible College and is a charter member of Promised
