When you speak of excellence in gospel music, Luther Barnes & The Sunset Jubilaires is a group that hits high marks.
Under Luther’s leadership, The Sunset Jubilaires have long been recognized as one of America’s top traditional quartet groups as well as an international gospel powerhouse.
Deriving from one of gospel music’s influential musical family aggregations, Rocky Mount, North Carolina’s Barnes family, The Sunset Jubilaires have been traveling down this gospel highway for quite some time.
Inspired by the likes of Andrae Crouch, the Williams Brothers, the Jackson Southernaires as well as his father, Rev. F.C. Barnes, Luther has crafted The Sunset Jubilaires into a group possessing a unique blend of voices and musicians with the uncanny ability to deliver a song in their own fashion. These are facts that have only increased their popularity.
Their immense popularity has opened the door for the group to perform at the prestigious Apollo Theatre, many of this country’s major amusement parks, along with travels to the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Jamaica and Germany.
Their 2004 Release, It's Your Time, was nominated for a Grammy Award and won the 2005 Stellar for Traditional CD of the Year.
