The Joylanders began their ministry in 1971 in Dyer, Tennessee. Perry and Nell Wimberley felt the call of God on their lives to minister for the Lord through music ministry. They answered the call and have been singing ever since.
The group presently is comprised of Perry & Nell Wimberley and Jason, Vanessa, Jay Vincent, and Allison Riley Griggs.
The style of Gospel music that the Joylanders sing is Traditional / Southern Gospel and Bluegrass Gospel. They incorporate older songs and new songs. The Joylanders use a blend of Live Music and Tracks. No matter the style of music nor the instrumentation of a song, the message is still crystal clear, Jesus Saves. The Joylanders sincerely hope to show the way of the cross to the lost and dying while at the same time encouraging the Christian to a closer walk with God.
The Joylanders currently travel and sing on weekends. They currently book about 150 –160 events per year. They also travel on a Love offering basis. The Joylanders currently sing in about 7 states, but will sing wherever God opens the door.
