Often called "St. Louis' First Family of Gospel Music," The Lesters, from St. Louis, MO, have been sharing the Word through song for four generations. With more than an 80-year history and numerous albums behind them, the group proudly brings the third & fourth generation to the stage for a sound that is 100% "PURE LESTER."
Brian - Lead singer, Manager and Emcee
Their signature sound is a blend of inspired arrangements and vocal artistry, led by longtime performer Brian Lester. Brian, who also serves as emcee and manager, has been singing with the family since he was four. His vibrant voice and easy rapport with audiences continue to make him a favorite.
Ginger - Alto
Brian's sister, Ginger Pitchers, is also a lifelong performer, having recorded for The Lesters when she was only two. Ginger's smooth alto voice lends style to the group, as do her soul-filled renditions of new and classic gospel hits. She arranges all Lester vocals. In her words, she "Lesterizes" their songs.
Jonathan - Baritone
As a fourth generation performer, Jonathan Lester brings a real freshness to the group. Like his father, Brian, Jon was "born to sing," performing at a very young age. But he remains inspired by the generations of Lesters who went before him and by the message of God's eternal grace.
Another fourth generation performer is Drummer/Music Director, Evan Pitchers. He is the son of Dan and Ginger Pitchers, and like everyone else before him, Evan began performing very young. Now as an accomplished musician, he is an inspiration and encourager to other young people to use their talents for the Lord.
The Lesters take pride in their family heritage, but consider God's greater family as the real reason for their continued work. As they prayerfully pass their legacy to future generations, The Lesters hope to move others to a deeper level of spiritual commitment.
