Performing in the United States for the second time since 1958: The Golden Gate Quartet

For only the second time since 1958, The Golden Gate Quartet will be performing in the United States. Formed on March 28, 1934, The Golden Gate Quartet started off as a traditional Jubilee style gospel quartet and reached the height of their popularity during the 30s and 40s. In the late 40s and early 50s, quartets such as the Soul Stirrers and the Dixie Hummingbirds proved more popular among audiences with their hard style of singing. The Golden Gate Quartet continued to sing in their old style and toured Europe for the first time in 1955 before permanently relocating to Paris, France in 1959.

Here is some information about their upcoming, rare stateside appearance.
