King James Boys

The King James Boys are an all gospel, bluegrass band that blends southern gospel harmonies with modern bluegrass sounds. Founded in 1994, The King James Boys started solely as group that only sang at their church with no intentions of traveling. A few years later, after much encouragement and prayer, The King James Boys were led to pursue ministering and singing abroad. Now, some years later, The King James Boys are still doing what they started out doing and that is sharing the gospel with others through the music!
