Gus Gaches is a tenor singer for the Southern Gospel quartet Legacy Five. He joined the group in 2009. Gaches has also sung with Calvary Construction Company, the legendary Imperials and The Lefevre Quartet.


Gaches first started working with southern gospel quartets through studio work and in February 2001, he joined his first quartet: the Calvary Construction Company, a quartet that he would sing with part-time while still working in the studio during the week.

In 2005 Gaches was asked to join the group The Imperials. Members Terry Blackwood, Joe Moscheo, and Sherman Andrus needed someone to sing tenor with them for select dates involving Elvis Presley Enterprises.[citation needed] They traveled internationally performing 25-30 shows a year called "The Gospel Side of Elvis".

In 2006 The Lefevre Quartet asked Gaches to join and travel with them when he wasn't on the road with The Imperials.

In 2009 Scott Fowler from Legacy Five contacted Gaches about filling in for their current tenor singer, Frank Seamans, whose son was ill at the time. Gaches also made sure Fowler knew that if Frank decided to leave, he would be honoured to be considered for the position.[citation needed] Scott soon offered him the position and Gaches became the new tenor singer for the group.[1] Legacy Five currently consists of Gaches, Fowler, baritone singer Scott Howard, bass singer Matt Fouch and piano player Trey Ivey.[2][3]

Personal life[edit]

Gaches married his wife, Tamara, in April 1989. They have two children, Gus (b. 1991) and Kylie (b. 1997)
