The Bunkleys are Southern Gospel Trio based out of Trenton, SC. They share a rich history of Gospel Music spanning over 40 years. Lorraine Walker, writer for SGN Scoops, wrote an article about the Bunkleys where she states, “You will find through listening to their music, that they have a unique sound and amazing vocals that will minister to your heart and remind you of your walk with God. “We sing because we all live in a discouraging world,” say the Bunkleys. “It’s not easy to be a Christian today. It’s a struggle. Our ministry is to encourage the body of Christ. To stand with you as we make war against the Prince and Power of this world.” The Bunkleys have just released their first EP called “Just a Little Bit of Something”. It has three original songs and an accapella version of “I Surrender All”. A radio release of one of the songs is planned for the very near future and work has already begun on their first project called “New Beginnings”. It will be a combination of original songs and some old favorites. The group shares a rich history of Gospel Music. Rick and Peggy Bunkley started very young singing and traveling for the Lord. The two met at a little church in Gibsonia, FL just outside of Lakeland. Peggy was 14 and Rick was 17.
Rick Bunkley has been singing since he was 15 years old. He started out as a musician playing bass guitar. Singing came after writing some songs that the group liked, and then after some personnel changes, he started playing and singing. Rick and Peggy came off the road in 1992 for Rick to answer the call to preach. After spending 15 years preaching, God called them back in 2014 to what they do best; sing! He still preaches and does revivals. One of the accomplishments he has just received is a Doctorate in Theology. Congratulations Dr. Rick!
Peggy started singing publicly when she was 12. She was a standout singing with her high school chorus group. Peggy has sung with the Lakeland Symphony Orchestra. She was offered a full music scholarship but turned it down to get married. Peggy’s singing can only be described accurately with one word; anointed! Music truly is a language and Peggy speaks it fluently. Peggy has the awesome ability to bring the listener into the song so that at the end they feel in their heart what she felt in hers as she sang it.
Dwayne has been involved in Gospel music all of his life! He learned to walk going down the hallway holding on the walls of our Eagle tour bus! God gave Dwayne the ability to play any instrument his puts his hands on! He has become quite the utility player! Dwayne also is a prolific song writer! He writes many of the songs we sing. He writes story songs about things that are meaningful in his life that most folks can relate to. Not to mention he’s one of the best sound men in the business! We are truly blessed to have Dwayne back singing with us!
