Nashville, TN (Feb. 7, 2020) — Gateway Management has signed the group Jackson Heights to an exclusive management deal. The name Jackson Heights may be a new name to some in the Christian Music scene, but the band has a storied history.

In the early ’80s the highly successful Southern Gospel group the Dixie Melody Boys revamped their sound, combining the current sounds of Music Row Country with Christian music. The result was a sound well ahead of its time—it was known as Christian Country. The DMB Band had several songs that made the charts like “Last Train to Glory,” “Good Ole Boys” and “Run Little Brother.” The band toured until 1988 before disbanding.

In October 2012, the members of that group were asked to do a reunion event, and from the moment they stepped on stage together, it was evident that they hadn’t missed a step. What was meant to be a one-time event resulted in the rebirth of the group under a new name, Jackson Heights.

“These guys have a rich history but what they are doing now musically is incredible,” says Matt Felts, owner of Gateway Management. “They have the best band on the road and are connecting with fans right where they live.”

Jackson Heights recently released their second project since reforming, This Thing Called Life, and they have kicked off a 2020 tour with stops in Nashville and Texas.
