The Down East Boys
The Down East Boys is a name that is synonymous with Gospel Music. For more than 30 years, this quartet has traveled from coast to coast, from Canada to Mexico. Starting in eastern North Carolina, the group chose the name from that region called “Down East.” Although the name was associated with a small area, it did not take long for this group’s boundaries to expand. In just a few short years, the group had their first chart song and was signed to a major recording contract with Sonlite Records. Upon release of their second recording with Sonlite, the group was thrust into the mainstream of gospel music with their song “Beautiful Valley." For 10 months, this song remained in the top 40 of the Singing News chart and took the guys from a regional quartet to a sought after group across the country. In 1990, riding the success of that song, the Down East Boys received the Horizon Group of the Year from the readers of the Singing News. Shortly after, with the demand for the group at an all-time high, the guys began their journey into full time ministry.
During their years of travel, the group has recorded more than 20 projects with over 40 songs reaching the top of the Singing News charts. Their latest release had three songs reach #1 on the Singing News Top 40 Chart, Beat Up Bible, Testimony Time and I'd Like To Tell It Again. Group members are Ricky Carden, Zac Barham, Doug Pittman & Daryl Paschal.
