a WORD from TOM......
“Too often we live our routine lives, work our 9-5 jobs, and go to church two or three times a week. But how often do we actually reach out to help someone? The Lord has commissioned us to minister to people. We must tell them that someone loves them. God has entrusted us with the awesome task of telling people of his saving grace and love. We want to give our best.”
Gotta love it!
Tom and Troye
The Dalton Gang is entertaining, talented and most of all music ministers. They skillfully blend music and testimony. As the concert unfolds, it’s hard to sit through the Dalton Gang’s concert without getting involved - singing along and worshipping with them. Perhaps the most important element of their presentation is Tom’s unique ability to establish a rapport with his listeners. It is evident that he desires to reach out and impact the lives of the audience; encouraging them to love one another so that Christ will be glorified in their lives. Their country style, superb family harmony and lively presentation takes them coast to coast. The Dalton Gang has played at the White House in Washington, DC, on concert stages (Ohio State Fair, Dollywood, Renfro Valley, Kentucky Apple Festival), and many churches including Greentree Ministries in Atlantic City, NJ and Dr. Stewart McBernie’s church in Glendale, CA. The Dalton Gang’s music is heard nationally on Christian radio and television. “There’s Always A Rainbow” and “There Is Strength In The Lord”, played by Salem’s southern gospel music network, SOLID GOSPEL, sent encouragement to millions and prompted response from across the nation. The Dalton Gang has enjoyed Top 20 songs nationally. Tom has written songs recorded by some of Southern Gospel Music’s most popular groups such as the McKameys, Spencers and the Singing Cookes. They have been seen by millions on Christian television such as TBN, GMT, PTL, CTN, Daystar, Dove and many syndicated and local programs. During the 1990’s, the two Daltons joined Nashville’s music industry when a health issue forced the Dalton Gang into a sabbatical from full-time ministry. Although Tom and Cheryl were not actively touring at the time, they continued to be active in developing and establishing many other gospel music artists. Tom worked on Nashville’s Music Row where he was Marketing Director for Multimedia/Music City News’ GOSPEL VOICE magazine. He also founded Brentwood Talent and Marketing, a promotions and management company with clients such as the Crabb Family, Sparrow Records, Charlie Daniels, Marty Raybon, Andy Griffith, and Bill Gaither & the Homecoming Corporation. In 2001, they again picked up their tour schedule and put the Dalton Gang back on the road. Sincerity and dedication just begin to describe the Dalton Gang. They’re real. Real people. Singing about real salvation and real hope through the Lord Jesus Christ.
"One of the most wholesome, fun family acts in the business. These folks are real and I'm glad to call them my friends."

The music was great but I especialloy was impressed by the sincere family unity of love and mutual appreciation of each other.
