Event at Hyatt “One of Best”
Charlie Waller brought the Grand Ole Gospel Reunion back to Greenville this past week after moving to Knoxville for a few years following a long stretch of reunions in Greenville held at Memorial Auditorium until it was torn down. The reunion then moved to the Peace Center for a couple of years and finally to Furman’s Auditorium for the last two years before moving out of the state.
The Grand Ole Gospel Reunion brings hundreds of people from all over the nation to Greenville for almost a week. The influx of Southern Gospel Music fans and performers provides a significant boost to the local economy, especially hotels and restaurants.
The 22nd Grand Ole Gospel Reunion last week was held at the Hyatt, and was described by some of the regular singers and fans as “one of the best.”
The seating was comfortable, the sound system excellent, food service, rest rooms, overnight accommodations and parking were very convenient.
We met several readers of The Times Examiner who were informed about the Grand Ole Gospel Reunion by reading Keith Crowe’s Gospel Music Corner column that appears in this publication each week.
Keith’s column this week features an important announcement made by The Travelers, Keith’s favorite quartet during the reunion.
Keith Crowe posed for a photograph with The Travelers following their performance Saturday Night at the Hyatt as the reunion came to a close for the 22nd time back home in Greenville, South Carolina.
