For two decades Darrell McFadden and the Disciples, have been making down home traditional gospel music just like four part harmonizers make it in southern quartet hubs such as Canton, MS (home of the Canton Spirituals), Jackson, MS (birthplace of The Jackson Southernaires) or Tupelo, MS (the launching pad for Lee Williams & the Spiritual QCs). The only difference is these guys hail from Brooklyn, New York — the northern urban mecca that produced rap legend Notorious B.I.G., boxer Mike Tyson and comedian Jerry Seinfeld. Darrell McFadden And The Disciples, known as one of the hardest working Groups/Bands in the land (Called “DMD” by their fans) have a fresh but classic sound that stays close to traditional quartet roots while exploring contemporary musical styles. Jazzing up quartet has been in the group’s lifeblood from the start. DMD has shared the stage with many gospel legends over the last 20 years and share a very special relationship with the veterans and the rising talent within the quartet music genre. Seen as innovators, inspiring many young artists who have taken to their unique urban approach to the traditional style of quartet music. DMD has performed at many conventions and festivals including: The GMWA, The Jackson Music Awards, The Stellar Awards, The American Gospel Quartet Convention, The New Orleans Jazz Fest, The Chicago Gospel Fest, The Clarksdale Blues and Art Festival, and many more, as well as earning two Stellar Award Nominations. “We want to take quartet music to a new stage of recognition and popularity. A lot of people have lost touch with it, aren’t even familiar, or have an inaccurate impression about it. We want to show them that it can still be current, modern and something they can latch onto and enjoy. But our greatest purpose is just to win souls. There are a lot people who love this music but still don’t know much, if anything about God. We want to be Ambassadors for the Lord, and present the Gospel in a way people can receive it in their hearts…just the same as we want to take Quartet music and put it hand-in-hand with Contemporary, and everybody live together as one.” To God Be The Glory!!!
