Press Release for June 18 Concert:
Celebrating our second year of Free Southern Gospel Concerts An Evening of Gospel Singing
Jeffersonville, Indiana— May 26, 2022 — The Highway 62 Jubilee brings you an evening of three great regional Gospel Artists in concert to start our second year. Featured will be new Southern Gospel, Praise and Country Gospel Music.
On Stage June 18th will be The Edwards Family, a Southern Gospel Family Band that is with the Chapel Valley Studios (Nashville). The members of The Edwards Family have been singing, performing, and playing in sync as they have been together their entire musical careers. Throughout the course of the band’s union, they have won over the hearts of music lovers from all walks of life; performing at a variety of venues including DollyWood, Ogle Furniture @Gospel Music Jamboree, NQC showcase, GMFF, making loads of public appearances, all the while with God’s favor had the honor of receiving a Top# 40 Singing News Chart and a Top #80 Singing News Chart, along with both songs charting in Christian Voice and other various charts.
Joining the Edwards Family will be Blood Bought, a Southern/Country Gospel Band. Blood Bought is very popular for Homecomings, Festivals and Fairs, playing over 80 dates per year. Originated in 2004, the band consisted of one family of Mom,2 Sons, a second family of Dad and Son, and Uncle. They produced one CD project that includes 3 original songs, including “Love Is In The Blood”. After Uncle Ronnie Coy passed away, Blood Bought brought on a talented young man to play bass. This current group has produced two more CD’s that include 9 originals as well. They will be live studio recording two songs, “Love Is In The Blood” and “Leavin’ Here” for radio and streaming release that evening. We invite you to come be a part of it!
Admission is FREE to the concert, which is held at 6:30pm (eastern) at Maxwell’s House of Music in Jeffersonville Indiana. According to Ray Lawrence, founder and producer, “In the urban areas, the generations that have grown up with Southern Gospel Music are finding it more difficult to find this type of music performed live unless you occasionally hear it in a rural church. We bring that music back!
The live concert will be held on February 19th, 2022 at 6:30pm (eastern)/5:30pm (central). Admission is FREE. Snacks and Sodas are FREE. Donation and offering for the groups are encouraged. The venue is located at Maxwell’s House of Music, 1710 E. 10th Street, Jeffersonville Indiana. Everyone is invited.
CD Distribution has started! We have just completed the first Gospel Music Audio CD Master from our live concert in February 2022. This is THE ENTIRE concert, music, laughs, boo-boo’s etc all included. Exceptional music with The Victorious Trio, Silas Eisenback AND The Noblemen.
These are just the first of many sets that we hand out to anyone. Do you want to make someone’s day? You can order (up to 2 at a time) for just the cost of shipping. Yes, we really don’t charge for the CD’s! Check them out here!
Congratulations are in order to Chloe Cheppard (Garry Sheppard’s daughter) on her marriage in April. Just couldn’t get Garry to come up and sing on that day!
As you may know, many who are involved with Highway 62 Jubilee also work many hours in other endeavors. Ralph has been out of state helping in Arkansas, Jeff will be heading out of country to the Phillipines for 2 weeks. I have a lot of catching up to do on post-production for the musical guests who have appeared in the show. We will NOT have a May 21st Concert. Taking a break to get everything get caught up. BACK ON JUNE 18th, with a new time of 6:30pm. Come when you can, leave when you want. PLUS! More audience Hymn Singing with everyone! Send me some feedback on the time, if you would.
We are in process of setting up a Gospel Talent Contest in the month of November. We will be opening up entries in the following categories: Southern Gospel, Bluegrass Gospel and Country Gospel. This includes solo, duet, trio and groups. Do you know of a Gospel Artist or Groups? Let them know about this, we’ll have early sign up coming soon!
Don’t forget! Broadcasts are on every Thursday evening at 9pm (eastern), 8pm (central).
Exciting News! The process has begun to incorporate as a Not-For-Profit, and registering as a 501(c)(3). Since day one, we have operated out of our own pocketbooks, and had some generous help from local businesses as well.
MORE Exciting News! We are taking all our our complete concert video and weekly edited concert broadcast video, and starting a music distribution ministry for shut-ins and local nursing home residents. Studies show and have proved that music IS a great healer for these folks. And we take the message of the Gospel in song to each and every one. This is a love ministry for us, Highway 62 Jubilee pays for all costs including distribution.
EVEN MORE Exciting News! I will be heading up to the stage/studio rooms this Friday (March 11) to help with a major move. Maxwell’s House of Music is consolidating the 2 concert rooms into one to make room for more inventory. This move puts us in the Stage Room, which has upgraded digital sound boards and an isolated sound booth. What does this mean? For our recorded streamed broadcasts, much better quality! We won’t have to be moving cameras back and forth on the day of the concerts, which gives us better control over video quality.
Why is this important? It certainly isn’t a necessity, but it allows our outreach to be better presented in these days to the outside world. The message continues to be the number one priority.
We take our Live Concert footage, and edit it down to 4 half hour (or so) videos for broadcast and streaming. Over a period of 30 days, one weeks broadcast is now reaching upwards of 800 to 1500 people. Praise God!
I’d like to encourage you to come visit us at one of the Live Concerts. This is a perfect time and day for an outing, starts early enough, and you can drive home while it is still daylight. Load up a bus or van, and come sing along to the songs you love and remember. We almost always present them on the 3rd Saturday of the month at 2:00pm (eastern). This gives you time to enjoy the afternoon. Have a meal before, or after. There is no charge for admission, and we also offer a free snack concession area with sodas, coffee and light snacks.
You may not know this, but our afternoon concerts are designed to not only bring you LIVE Gospel music, but to also allow us to create video broadcast content that will reach far beyond Jeffersonville Indiana. We’d like to thank everyone for their valuable feedback over the past few months. We’ve listened. Starting on October, we will start the concerts at 2pm.
This gives you time to enjoy the afternoon. Have a meal before, or after.
At 2pm, you’ll get to hear in person, Hearts of Joy. After Hearts of Joy, we will welcome The Sinclairs, from Indianapolis. You don’t want to miss them. They are so full of life, and love. Their song and testimony will really lift you up. There will also be drawings for CD’s during the afternoon as well.
The NEXT Live Concert will be on February 19th, 2pm (Eastern) at Maxwell’s House of Music, 1710 E 10th Street, Jeffersonville, Indiana.
Before we get started with what’s happening in 2022, let’s give a huge praise for 2021 and what it brought us. We have been blessed with music from:
His Grace Ralph Frazier Garry Sheppard and Chloe Sheppard The McCoy Family The Stacy’s Aubrey Bowlus Blood Bought Hearts of Faith The Ellis Family Remnant Praise Battle Cry Smith & Company Beyond Grace The Boyd Family Hearts of Joy The Sinclairs Victorious Trio
We also gathered food goods for the ministry at WJCR Radio. Our mission has been to be a blessing to our family of Christians, be a beacon for Jesus Christ to the lost, and be active in helping others in time of need. Read more on “Our Mission” Page.
What will 2022 bring?
Highway 62 Jubilee will still have LIVE concerts. This year, they will be held on the 3rd Saturday of the Month. (But always check if a date or time changes). Always start at 2pm (Eastern).
We just added a prayer request area on the website. Highway 62 Jubilee has a HUGE family made up of people who believe in the power of prayer. When we post prayer requests, you too, can be a part of the prayer team, and keep requests lifted to the Lord. Read more about “The Prayer Room” here.
We have defined our mission and ministry in more detail. Music has been proven to be a healing element in people’s lives. Music brings back memories. Music drives our hearts to action. Music touches deep into our souls. Music makes us feel good, and it certainly can deliver a message. Read more on the “Our Mission” page.
In 2022, we want to get more churches involved. Make more personal visits to the pastors, and leaders of the churches. Meet those who lead the senior groups, the young adults and the youth. The message Southern Gospel brings is timeless.
Now open seating! New Concert Times! Matinee at 1:00pm Evening at 4:00pm Free Highway 62 Music CD to all who attend* For those that reserve seats, free Highway 62 Jubilee DVD* Sign up for the RSVP list!
We are going to be making a food run to Upton Kentucky to help WJCR feed families. Will YOU help? Bring some canned or dry goods, or farm fresh fruits and vegetables with you to the concert, we will collect them, and deliver that Tuesday to WJCR!
