Get To Know Us…
We invite you to experience the innovative sound of The Calvarymen as they sing classic southern gospel as well as cutting edge progressive gospel in their defining style.
Since their birth in 1956, the Calvarymen Quartet has been a driving force in southern gospel music. For 27 years, the Calvarymen represented Michigan on the main stage at the National Quartet Convention, which is home to the nations top names in southern gospel music.
In 1976, the Michigan State Senate declared by official resolution the Calvarymen Quartet to be “Michigan’s Ambassadors of Goodwill”. More recently, the 35th ward of the city of Chicago declared by official resolution, August 14, 2006 to be “Calvarymen Quartet Sunday” by Alderman – Rey Colon.
Present day members include Barry Maust – Lead, Steve Ratliff – Baritone, Phil Parkin – Tenor, and back with the quartet, the original Bass singer, Jim Glasco. These men continue to minister thru music. Their style of music may have changed a little, but the message is still as powerful as ever. They are regularly featured on the Gospel Music Television, as well as radio stations across the U.S. On the website “Radioactive airplay” which is a charting system for gospel music, the Calvarymen had the #1 Christmas song for 2006, and the #2 southern gospel song for the month of December, 2006. They charted numerous songs nationally with the Singing News and other national charts throughout the country.
Together these men bring a love for the Lord that spills out in their performances. If you love tight harmonies, accapella singing, and traditional southern gospel, then a Calvarymen concert is just for you. You will see that worshiping the Lord can be a fun experience, and that God is still in the business of working in hearts and changing lives.
