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.
If you would like the Bluegrass Gospel Express to visit your church, have your pastor or music director contact us by calling Jerry Thompson at 301-373-8370 or sending an email to email@example.com.
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 whose memory keeps us in touch with our roots, was Abraham Lincoln "Linc" Snyder. On February 7, 2013, he went on to be with Jesus. Please continue to pray for his family and friends for peace and strength and that we continue to be close to God so that we might sing with him again!
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 opportunity 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. When Linc's health slowed him down, we were honored to have Curt Moss step in with his talents on guitar (and just about anything else) and great vocals. He has performed and recorded with "Loafers Glory" and "Flying Blind Bluegrass" among others. We're very pleased that Bill Davis has rejoined the band on banjo and vocals as well as Ed Stapanon with his amazing bass playing and singing.
