The Lesters are one of the most respected family groups in the field of gospel music. Their career has spanned nearly eight decades, and has literally taken them around the globe with appearances in The Holy Land, India, Italy, and Switzerland. They enjoy a full schedule of dates throughout the year at concert halls, auditoriums, state and county fairs, civic functions, and churches across the United States and Canada.
The audiences enjoy the versatility of The Lesters music, and their unique arrangements. The Lesters do not take their heritage lightly, understanding the great responsibility involved in presenting the message through the avenue of Gospel Music.
Local favorite. Tony Bullock has had the opportunity to share the stage with many other talented artists. As God opens the doors for Tony to sing and share his testimony, he is stepping forward to help others experience that same type of personal relationship he has found in his life.
