Smith and Company
Smith and Company is a Southern Gospel group whose goal is to present the Gospel of Jesus Christ in song. As in Bible days, music was used to encourage and draw people to the Lord. That is the aim of our ministry. We want to lift up the saints and encourage others to seek salvation through Jesus.
Our group uses a live band consisting of keyboard, bass guitar, steel guitar, and drums. Our sound is “just right” with a musical blend that allows the voices and lyrics to be heard.
We are not a full-time group. Most of us have jobs and travel regionally on weekends singing the gospel. The group is currently comprised of myself, my wife, Cindy, and other talented friends. Our lead singer is Rusty Cecil, who sings with a smooth style. Steve Hester, who has many years of quartet experience, adds baritone. Steve Skelton is a talented player who keeps us going with a tight rhythm on bass guitar. We are blessed to have Rick Denny playing steel guitar. One of the most complimentary drummers in gospel music, Jerry Doyle, is playing for us.
Our style appeals to young and old alike. We sing the classics and also the newer Southern Gospel tunes. Our programs include numbers sung by The Cathedrals and The Gaithers. If you love Southern Gospel, then you’ll like our singing.
We hope you will enjoy our concert, and more importantly, receive a blessing from God as you listen to Smith and Company Gospel Quartet.
Singing for the Savior,
