JUST WEST OF HERE
(Bakersfield, Calif.)—It seems when you start talking about groups in California, The Lighthouse Boys’ name always comes up. They have been called “a refreshing breath of new life” in Southern Gospel music. They are five men who are fired-up and dedicated to singing and traveling from one end to the other of a state that is 700 miles long.
Bill Underwood has a rich voice and unique guitar style that gives the group a firm foundation. He is also the preacher of the group. Mark Underwood is the songwriter and is constantly working to improve the sound of the group. He plays piano and sings first tenor. Ken Edwards is from Dry Prong, La., where his dad has a radio station. Ken sings, writes songs and plays bass guitar. He started singing when he was seven years old. Terry Mullin is the bass singer who has a contagious smile and is always into something. I don’t know why, but it seems everyone loves a bass singer. The quiet one of the group is Stephen Underwood, but you know he’s around when he sits down at his drums. He also plays many other instruments. Praise the Lord for a group like The Lighthouse Boys.
