The Spokesmen Quartet receives 2013 North Carolina Excellence Award 

May 6th 2014 -  The Spokesmen Quartet has been selected for the 2013 North Carolina Excellence Award amongst all its peers and competitors by the US Trade & Commerce Institute (USTCI).

Each year the USTCI conducts business surveys and industry research to identify companies that have achieved demonstrable success in their local business environment and industry category. They are recognized as having enhanced the commitment and contribution of small businesses through service to their customers and community. Small businesses of this caliber enhance the consumer driven stature that North Carolina is renowned for.

The Spokesmen Quartet has consistently demonstrated a high regard for upholding business ethics and company values. This recognition by USTCI marks a significant achievement as an emerging leader within various competitors and is setting benchmarks that the industry should follow.

As part of the industry research and business surveys, various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the selected companies in each category. This research is part of an exhaustive process that encapsulates a year long immersion in the business climate of North Carolina.



The USTCI is a leading authority on researching, evaluating and recognizing companies across a wide spectrum of industries that meet its stringent standards of excellence. It has spearheaded the idea of independent enterprise and entrepreneurial growth allowing businesses of all sizes to be recognized locally and encouraged globally.

Particular emphasis is given to meeting and exceeding industry benchmarks for customer service, product quality and ethical practices. Industry leading standards and practices have been developed and implementation of the same has been pioneered by the dedicated efforts of the business community and commerce leadership.



Gerald's 2013 Hollywood Party Honoring Liberace

(Aren't you impressed that at my age I can text? My Daughter and grandsons required pictures every  five minutes.)

Me as Michael Buffer.

Many were in attendance, some dead and portrayed by impersonators, such as Lee Liberace, Elizabeth Taylor, Marylyn Monroe, etc. Others were   still alive and looking good, such as, Rocky Balboa, Duck Dynasty Family and many other celebs and friends. The first Red Carpet I have walked, interesting, especially this one paparazzi guy named Albert. I also sang with Rocky, Lee, and Rick. It brought the house down. Guess what song we sang!

After going through some major health problems over the past 4 years, I have lost a lot of weight, then put on a lot of weight, then more treatment took my hair and more weight. I have been on a workout regimen to get my body back in shape. Thanks to the good Lord for allowing my health to continue to get better.

I look forward to seeing you in 2017!

I will be accepting bookings in September
