The Florida Boys

Profile:
The Florida Boys Quartet is a Southern Gospel vocal quartet founded in about 1946 by J. G. Whitfield.

Originally named The Gospel Melody Quartet, the group was renamed in 1954.

J. G. Whitfield left the group a couple of years later, turning over the management of the group to Les Beasley.

Under the leadership of J. G. Whitfield and Les Beasley, The Florida Boys Quartet became involved in television first on the Gospel Song Shop and later on the popular Gospel Singing Jubilee.
They were also the first group signed to the Canaan Records label.

On radio, The Florida Boys Quartet are most remembered for their 1985 release "When He Was On The Cross." It held the top position on the Singing News chart for five months from August through December.

In 2007 Glen Allred, Les Beasley, and Derrell Stewart decided to retire The Florida Boys Quartet.
They sold the rights to the group name to Charlie Waller who began a brand new group called The Florida Boys Quartet in 2008.
