It all started back in 1920's when a young man in Sweetwater, Texas attended a Stamp School of Music. That young man, Bob Jones Sr., a member of the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame, formed the quartet in San Diego in 1944. One of the original members was another Hall of Fame member, Earl Weatherford. Together they developed a style of quartet singing that influenced an entire generation of quartets, including the Weatherfords, Imperials and the Cathedrals. Bob Sr. was active in the quartet until he passed away at the age of 93. He was still singing on the main stage of the National Quartet Convention at 91 years of age. His son, Bob Jones Jr. joined the quartet as a teenager and is still active as manager and lead singer.
