Southern Ontario is home to one of Canada’s best-loved
male quartets, the Torchmen. Known for their strong four-part
harmony, country-flavoured melodies and gospel lyrics, these
men have sung their way into hearts for over 50 years.
The Torchmen are Grammy nominees, Canadian Gospel Music
Association award winners, and have sung on stages from the
Grand Old Opry to the Air Canada Center. Each weekend finds
them on the road yet again, putting on more miles as they sing
across the country for the Lord.
The Torchmen have enjoyed the trip so far and show no signs
of stopping. Each year they are a part of major Southern Gospel
Music programs, such as the National Quartet Convention in
The States. The group also enjoys traveling to smaller towns
and churches all across Canada and the United States where
loyal fans will pack sanctuaries and auditoriums to hear their
Mike Moran, baritone and Torchmen spokesman, does much of the emcee work for the quartet. Sandy MacGregor’s pure classic tenor voice adds to the traditional Southern Gospel sound. Jeff Tritton adds his smooth lead vocals and energy on stage. Jon Hisey sings a strong bass part and is also the groups’ sound technician. Together this groups’ close harmony will keep you inspired.
When the Torchmen take the stage the audience is soon reminded of all the good things in life. With a mix of hand-clapping tunes and thoughtful ballads, The Torchmen quickly have their listeners laughing and even shedding a tear with their music, banter and stories. The quartet is not content to tickle ears; their purpose is to touch souls with the ageless message of Christ. The Torchmen also offer a complete Christmas package with lights sound and music.
The Torchmen want to see people drawn to the Lord. “We feel very strongly that our ministry of Southern Gospel Music is to use entertainment combined with the message of the gospel to break down walls and draw people closer to Christ. God has allowed us to take His message in song to many places that the spoken word would not have reached and into many places that may not have heard this kind of presentation before. If you asked the guys I think they would say with me that “we feel this is where God wants us to be.”
