OUGMA’s first concert was on March 3, 1994 featuring the Lester's from St. Louis, Missouri. Another early program was held in the Yukon High School Fine Arts Auditorium and was called “Legends Of Gospel”. The talent for that program included J.D. Sumner and the Stamps Quartet, Hovie Lister and the Statesmen Quartet, James Blackwood and the Blackwood Quartet, Jake Hess and a very popular local group named The McLaughlin Bothers. Other Legends concerts were held in the Yukon Fine Arts Auditorium and one at First Baptist Church (Del City). By the 5th Legends concert Hovie Lister was the only one of the Legends still Living. The Last Program was on Thanksgiving weekend and Hovie Passed away the following December 28,2001.
