This lyric captures the essence of what the No Name Quartet has been singing about for nearly 20 years. The grace of God through Jesus Christ is the greatest gift in all the universe. It is the reason we have hope. It is the reason we have life, eternal life, and it is the reason we sing.
The No Name Quartet has been intentionally flying under the radar as a music group for nearly 20 years. Although one of the best kept secrets in the region, they continue to delight audiences with their mix of gospel and inspirational music, onstage humor and blending vocals.
The group started as a smaller version of the men’s ensemble at their local church. What was just getting together to sing for fun, grew into a highly requested quartet that has risen to sing the National Anthem at Banker’s Life Field House in Indianapolis, as well as recently singing alongside well-known gospel artists The Booth Brothers, The Guardians, Triumphant Quartet and Wes Hampton of the Gaither Vocal Band.
Even with these notable performances, the No Name Quartet still regards its annual Mother’s Day concert as the one most enjoyable. Performed annually, the concert takes place at the group’s home church in Winona Lake, Indiana.
NNQ loves the local church and considers the intimacy of the church sanctuary as one of the best venues for communicating gospel truth through song.
Another strong value of the group is the importance of family. Often, when NNQ is performing an area concert, lead vocalist Bob Jackson’s dad, Delane, will join the group to play his style of gospel piano as a prelude. Jeff Secaur includes his song-writing son, Aaron, as a featured performer at the Mother’s Day concert. Tim Yocum and Mike Yocum are brothers, and have kept audiences laughing at their sibling rivalry for years.
Although the group has intentionally stayed out of the spotlight, the No Name Quartet continues to shine the light on the Lord they sing about. He is the one worthy of all the praise.
