Group Members

Mark Ferguson (Founding Member). {Banjo, Guitar & Vocals}. I started out playing the guitar when I was 9 years old. I began playing the guitar in gospel music back in 1976 with the Damewood Family in Knoxville Tn. In 1980 I played with The Gibson Family from Seymour Tn. Around 1984-85 I began to learn how to play the banjo. In 1991 James Sanford and I began playing and singing gospel bluegrass around the Polk Co Georgia area. In 1992 we started the High Point Mountian Boys. In 1993-2003 I was a member of HPQ. In 2005-2008 I played as a member of Pure-N-Heart. In 2008 we changed back to the original name of HPQ and I am currently a member to date. Usually I play the guitar / banjo whenever we sing however; just for fun, I enjoy playing the upright bass & mandolin.  Mark and his wife Lorri attend Beulahland Baptist Church in Rockmart Ga. 

Shaun Drey. {Mandolin & Vocals}. Shaun Drey grew up in Acworth, Georgia and started playing music at the early age of 10 years old.  He was formally trained and has played many different instruments through the years, and has not stopped yet.  He and his wife Starr are the musicians for Light House Baptist church in Dallas, Georgia. They enjoy bringing the gospel through music to its congregation and are dedicated to play for the Lord.  Shaun’s father-in-law introduced him to Gospel Bluegrass years ago. Shaun has played with other groups and churches, but has found a home playing with High Point Quartet.  “Since the first time we picked, it felt like we have grown-up playing together”.  “God has given our group the talent and ability to share his songs”.  “We hope to bless our fans and serve God as needed”.

Josh Rakestraw. {Upright Bass & Vocals}. Josh was born and raised in Rockmart Ga. Josh had a desire to learn to play the upright bass and as a result of his desire, he started practicing with the HPQ around 2014. Shortly after this he joined up with the HPQ as the everyday upright bass player. Josh, his wife Morgan and, their three children attend Narroway Baptist Church in Dallas GA where Josh is a Deacon.

Kyle Tibbetts. {Rythm Guitar & Vocals}. Kyle has been with HPQ for a combined 12 years . Kyle is the pastor of Damascus Baptist Church where his wife Lauren and their three children attend.  

Glen Hayes {Lead Guitar & Vocals} Glen was born and raised in Central Florida and is a 3rd generation singer of Gospel music. He grew up singing in the choir at his home church and has always been involved with the music ministry wherever he has attended thru the years. Glen didn’t get serious about playing guitar until he was 40 years old and has now combined his love for Gospel and Bluegrass music together.

“I believe the Lord has provided me with a perfect fit with HPQ and look forward to bringing the Gospel thru song for His glory!” He and his wife, Janice, live in Cobb County and are very involved in their home church.
