Hi everyone, I will start by saying a few things about my family. I am married to Pat, together we have four children, they have given us six grand children, and one great- grand child.I know why they are called grand because they are GRAND.
I was written into the Lambs Book of Life, in 1972. I started singing in Church as a child, and then singing alone with my sister, playing the organ. Later on I was led to start singing with a quartet. Through the years, I have sang in several groups.
In saying that, brings us to now. God has brought together the right people to form Vintage Quartet, our mission is to bring people to Christ through song. Always remembering God deserves all honor and praise.
Thank you for visiting our web site and I am looking forward to seeing you soon.
I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior at the age of 12 and not long after that I began singing with my Dad and Sister. Upon graduating from high school I joined the United States Marine Corp and served a 13 month tour of duty in Vietnam. During a time when we were under attack I told God that if He would keep me safe I would serve him when I returned home.
After getting discharged from the Marines, I began serving the Lord through song and singing with The Gospel Envoys. Other groups I have sung with include Reality, The Singing Towers, and most recently, Trinity Quartet. Some of my fondest memories are singing in the “All Night Gospel Song Festivals” that Bill Hefner with the Harvesters Quartet held each year at Charlotte, North Carolina, in the old original Charlotte Coliseum.
God has Blessed with good health, a wonderful wife who supports me, a great family, and now a new ministry. My wife, Linda, and I live in Albemarle, NC, and are active members in Union Grove Baptist Church. We have a son, Aaron, and a daughter, Debbie. Debbie is married to Roger Moss. They have two beautiful little girls, Annalyse Claire Moss and Kaylee Olivia Moss. Grandchildren -- wow -- are they special or what? Yes! I am so Blessed! When not singing I enjoy fishing with Aaron, eating with the family, gardening, spending time with Linda, playing with Annalyse and Kaylee. (Not necessarily in that order.) Did I mention eating? Looking forward to meeting YOU soon
Southern Gospel Music has long been a part of my life. As far back as 8 years old, I can remember my dad having a recording studio in the house. He produced and anchored a 1 hour, “Gospel in Song” program on WGPL with DJ Don Matney in Winston-Salem NC.
We grew up learning how to wire microphones and set up for recordings. Dad recorded the Gospel Light Baptist Church services for Radio Broadcasts and their Choir’s first album. When he would go out of town, we would set up the mics and put on the Imperials, Stamps, Cathedrals, Blackwood Brothers, The Galileans, The Thrasher Brothers, Kingsmen and many more and record our concerts singing along with them. I may even still have some of those old “Sing-a-Thons” as we called them.
Time passed on and Dad did too, but the message in those songs began to speak to me and in 1989 I gave my life to Christ. I've sung with the Anchormen, The Brethren, Voices of Triumph, the Messengers and Revelation for the last 30+ years. I've recorded and produced 10 projects for these groups and several for other artists.
At 50 years old, my wife and I had a child, Kyleigh Grace Bertaux, and I soon decided help at home was the top priority. My wife Ginger and two other kids, Kendall and Joy, make up our family. I have to give thanks where it is due, if not for the blessing of my wonderful wife, doing this would not be as easy. She is my greatest support, my love and my friend. It seems it’s always Go Go Go. But life is for living and to the fullest I say. I needed some time with God to put things in order and I needed some time alone with him. It seems easy to get you eyes and feet off the path and if we are all honest, it happens without us even being aware. I thank God that when those times come he forgives and forgets.
I'm looking for great things from the Lord, so give a listen, open your heart and worship, accept Christ as your Savior and then smile, laugh and sing along with us and enjoy the Vintage Quartet.
I am a native of Burlington, NC and accepted Christ at the young age of 8 years old from a message brought by evangelist Dr. Oliver Greene who was visiting our church. I am a tenor in my church choir and have held the tenor position in two local quartets. I have been around southern gospel music all my life. My father and uncle have sung in groups in the past.
My wife, Linda and I have two daughters, Wendy and April, and three grandchildren, Kyndal, Camden, and Brinlee. I look forward to all the things the Lord has in store for the Vintage Quartet in the future.
