Ball Family Quartet to Appear at Greenville Missionary Church November 27th

The Ball Family Quartet of Covington, Ky will be performing at The Greenville Missionary Church on November 27th at 6 PM. The church is located on St. Rt. 118 N. Edge of Greenville. The Southern Gospel Group has been performng for over 40 years. The Ball Family has remained true to their commitment to make a difference. Through a compelling combination of harmonious vocals and outstanding musical accompaniment, this family group has been able to reach out to people challenging them to accept the Lord and make a change in their hearts and lives.

Herbert Ball, with children Nelson Ball and Peggy Ball-Arnold, formed The Ball Family Gospel Singing Group in 1969. Nelson remembers his dad, who sang bass, performing on TV and in auditoriums in the Midwest.

Today, The Ball Family is made up of seven talented singers and musicians who have come together to create an unmistakable sound and share a life changing message.

Nelson Ball, one of the founding members, manages the group. Nelson does an outstanding job bringing the blend of harmonies together.Peggy Ball-Arnold is also a founding member. Her smooth alto voice gives The Ball Family a unique sound. Glen Steely founded and managed the Crownsmen Quartet of Cincinnati for 27 years before joining the Ball Family in 2001. He is recognized as one of the finest bass singers in this part of the country. He is an asset to the rich Southern Gospel sounds of the Ball Family. Singing lead is Duane Early. His smooth voice provides a close blend with the other members of the group. Variety to the sound of the group is provided through the addition of Danny Cain to form an all male quartet.

Accompanying the four vocalists is the keyboard artistry of Carole Hill and Sarina Ball. Carole, an original member, has taught at several schools of music including the Stamps School of Music. She is considered to be one of the finest musicians in the field of Southern Music today. Sarina, wife of Nelson, and a Darke County Graduate from Ansonia High School, plays the keyboard bass and creates the fullness to the overall sound.

Since the first appearance, The Ball Family has shared their inspiring music ministry at auditoriums, camp meetings, prisons, and churches throughout the country.
