Multi-Grammy Award-winner Bill Gaither will host a spectacular evening of music, laughter and encouragement featuring the talent of the Gaither Vocal Band Friday, March 24, 2017 at 7 p.m. at the Milwaukee Theatre.
Gaither continues to be delighted by audiences’ response to the concerts, more than 40 years after he quit his day job as a teacher.
“I’ve always said it all starts with a great song, and we are fortunate that each concert includes great songs that have stood the test of time,” Gaither said. “With all the musical choices that are available now, there is still a special place for the joy and optimism that reside in Gospel music. Good news never gets old.”
The Gaither Vocal Band will share timeless gospel classics, as well as refreshing, inspiring new favorites embraced by audiences of all ages and backgrounds. For years, Bill Gaither has brought the Homecoming Tour to cities worldwide, performing to packed houses and ranked among the top concerts for tickets sold worldwide in any music genre during the past decade. The Milwaukee tour stop will feature the multi-award winning Gaither Vocal Band, and showcase many of the songs included on their latest, Better Together recording. Joining The Gaither Vocal Band for this special evening will be talented female vocalist, Charlotte Ritchie and powerful male vocalist Gene McDonald, as well as guitarist and comedian, Kevin Williams.
