Yesterday afternoon, the Diplomats announced that Harold Reed has joined their group. Reed is best known for his years with the Dixie Melody Boys, the Florida Boys, and The Kingsmen; he has also been a member of Squire Parsons’ touring ministry, the Melodyaires, and the LeFevre Quartet.
The Diplomats are a mixed group based in Carrollton, Georgia. At a number of points over the last few years, they have had enough group members to also stage a full male quartet for a portion of the program. With the addition of Reed, the announce indicates, this will return to their live programs.
