Southern Gospel NY is proud to bring The GloryWay Quartet to Rochester, NY.
Owner and lead, Justin Crank from Mansfield, Ohio formed the GloryWay Quartet in 2002. With a vision in mind and a dream that would become reality, his love for four-part harmony would inevitably come full circle. Justin believed that God would open a door, and with faith he would walk right through it. Now, in 2018, and the GloryWay Quartet based in Mansfield, Ohio has been signed with Capitol Artists, a prestigious booking agency in the world of Southern Gospel music. Leaving the borders of Ohio, staying busy, travelling nation-wide averaging over two hundred concert dates per year and travelling over 65,000 miles annually, the group books sometimes a year or more in advance. The group is no stranger to nation-wide radio, with several popular releases, including “That’s No Hill For A Climber,” “It’s So Peaceful,” and “Live With Jesus.” The GloryWay Quartet has participated in numerous NQC showcases down through the years, and in 2017 and 2018 was nominated for the GME Top 5 for “Quartet of the Year.” They were also the Showcase Winners of the 2016 American Gospel Celebration hosted by Pastor John Hagee.
GWQ has shared the stage with many of the top names in Southern Gospel Music. They have headlined and helped to launch important landmark fundraisers, such as Autism Awareness and Celebrating our U.S. Veterans. Other numerous accolades include participating in the well-known, “Is What It Was Elvis Show”, working alongside Elvis’ band leader, Joe Guercio. GWQ also frequents outdoor events such as State Fairs and Festivals including, Punxsutawney, PA, Wayne County, Ohio, and Hancock, Ohio. The group also performed at the “Columbus Clippers Baseball Faith & Family Night,” as well as at the Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Virginia. The group has recorded eleven projects to date, including a Christmas CD.
Presently, the group consists of Justin Crank as lead, Bryan Langley as Tenor, Baritone John Cole, and the talented and Fan Favorite Bass, Justin Sayger.
GWQ continually boasts a lineup with seasoned ability that will impress even the least of Southern Gospel Music fans! GloryWay is quickly becoming a household name among industry leaders. They have a heart for the lost, integrity to go the extra mile, and talent without limitations to share with all who listen.
Bob and Joyce Spamer of the Southern Gospel NY first heard GloryWay at a Showcase at the National Quartet convention in Pigeon Forge Tennessee and immediately fell in love with the beautiful 4 part harmony that these men have.
