New Orleans legacy is that of a world class musical hotbed, full of diverse styles and offerings. The New Orleans gospel music scene is no exception to the rule, which is evident with JC & Company.
In 1994, Jerome Clark and Kelroy Price brought this family oriented group of 8 neighborhood friends together to form the group JC & Company. Each of the members are not only talented songwriters and musicians, they were raised as gospel music performers and have worked with various other southern gospel groups before coming together as J C & Company. Some of the better known local artists they have worked with are The Mighty Chariots, The Randolph Brothers and, the well known Price Brothers. Collectively, this group started out with over 20 years of great southern gospel music experience under their collective belts.
J C & Company is rooted in the more traditional gospel stylings that have become a trademark for so many gospel groups such as the Southern Travelers and the Great Mahalia Jackson. Their soulful gospel style reaches back in time and reminds you of when gospel was gospel, and you didn't have to wonder about it. For many years, J C & Company was lead by Jerome Clark, When on stage together, they perform like fine-tuned instruments, as they weave their testimony into their heart-felt and utterly powerful performances. They leave nothing to the imagination. It is one hundred percent gospel music all the time.
The group made their maiden voyage into the European market in the latter part of 1998 and they were an instant success; today, J C & Company continues to wow audiences all over the world.
J C and Company is a significant part of the New Orleans gospel culture as they perform concerts all over the region. They are regular performers in the gospel tent at the famed New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. They have shared the stage with some of the most noted names in the gospel business, such as, The Gospel Keynotes, The Jackson Southernaires, and The Christianaires, just to name a few.
