February 7, 2013, just shy of his 90th birthday, we lost our dear friend and band founder Linc (Abraham Lincoln Snyder). Please pray for his wife, children and grandchildren; and pray that the band will be able to continue without his great big heart.
We'll miss you dear friend.

Bluegrass Gospel Express began its ministry in a small way in 1992 and since then God's blessing has allowed us to grow and spread His message in song and testimony. We are thankful for the opportunities He has given us over the years to serve Him and to meet many wonderful people.

ABOUT US (as of August 2013):
We are a Bluegrass Gospel band dedicated to lifting up the name of our Lord Jesus Christ in song and music.
The founder of our group and the one who keeps us in touch with our roots is Linc Snyder. His authentic singing and guitar playing leaves no doubt that his heart is where it belongs. Mary Sue Joy began singing and playing the banjo with Linc during breaks at work and when Jerry Thompson heard them sing at the Hollywood Church of the Nazarene he asked if he could join them. Jerry started singing in his church choir while a child and always took every oportunity he could find to share his talent. David Dixon has been singing and playing guitar and mandolin in bluegrass bands since his youth and was a member of "Glory Bound" before adding his talents to our little group. Steve Silvati - our "bass man" has moved on to play a more active roll in is his church. When Linc's health slowed him down, we were honored to have Curt Moss step in with his outstanding talents on guitar (and just about anything else) and great vocals that he has honed over the years since the age of nine. He has performed and recorded with "Loafers Glory", "Flying Blind Bluegrass" among others. Bill Adams (pictured above with his banjo) has also recently left the band and continues his well-know work with the "Grace Ole Opry". And we're very pleased that Bill Davis (not pictured) has rejoined the band on banjo. Finally, it looks like good old Ed Stapanon (also not shown) is back on the roster with his amazing bass playing and singing.
