Founded in 2006, Carolina The Band began after the official retirement of the Melody Masters Quartet. Known for quality southern gospel music, they included legendary names such as James “Big Chief” Wetherington, Jake Hess, and Wally Varner. The Melody Masters tradition was continued by Scott Whitener, Roger Burnett, and Chris Roberts in a popular and critically-acclaimed version of MMQ in the late 1990s.
One by one, the members of MMQ started to leave the road. Following a brief Melody Masters reunion tour in 2004-2005, Scott, Roger, and Chris decided to launch a new endeavor.
Today, Carolina The Band performs in all types of venues and outdoor events. They’ve even appeared with Elvis from time-to-time as J.D. Sumner and the Stamps. Their music is rich with solid and meaningful lyrics, their sound is characterized by rich harmonies, and their style and presentation are equal to many of the great quartet vocal groups.
Carolina The Band will challenge and strengthen your trust in God as they share the love of Jesus Christ in a celebration of our faith, family, and freedom. Make plans to hear them soon.
