STOW, Ohio, April 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- After five years of touring exclusively with Bill and Gloria Gaither's Homecoming series, Ernie Haase & Signature Sound (EHSS), the Grammy-nominated, Dove Award-winning southern gospel quartet with Gold and Platinum videos, is headlining solo tours throughout 2010 and 2011.
As the group's 2010 schedule approaches full capacity, they're currently booking for select fall and Christmas dates, and for all of 2011. EHSS is seeking churches, performing arts centers and promoters with venues that seat 800-1,500. Production is included.
Promoters who previously proposed concert dates that EHSS was unable to accommodate because of its Gaither commitments are also encouraged to fill out the "Hosting An EHSS Concert" form on the group's Booking Requests page.
The first leg of EHSS' solo journey, the Renewed & Reloaded Tour, began in January. "We're really enjoying spending more time singing for and loving on the fans that have helped make our dreams a reality," said tenor Ernie Haase, who founded the group in 2003.
EHSS will put on about 100 solo concerts annually -- 70 in North America and 30 international shows. In the fall of 2010, the band will kick off a special tribute tour to the beloved Cathedral Quartet. EHSS has revisited 20 of the most popular Cathedrals songs and will debut a two-CD set in the fall. Haase was a member of The Cathedrals from 1990 until they retired in December 1999.
EHSS' Cathedrals-Influenced Tour will run through 2011 and will revere the two men who made The Cathedrals legendary -- Haase's late father-in-law, George Younce, and Younce's gospel music partner of 35 years, the late Glen Payne.
The "Influenced" portion of this tour is rooted in EHSS' latest album release, "Influenced: Spirituals & Southern Classics," which honors artists, songwriters and sounds of the early twentieth century.
"We feel blessed to anticipate our best and most fulfilling years yet, and we look forward to sharing all-new evenings of just EHSS with new and familiar markets," said Haase.
