Robert “Bob” Hartfield Jr., David Hartfield Sr. and Chauncey Crosby formed The Hartfield Brothers and are known throughout the West Coast for their gospel ministry. Bob and David Hartfield come by gospel singing naturally. The sons of the legendary Rev. Robert Hartfield Sr. of the Golden West Singers, they were born into a gospel music family.
“The Brothers,” as their fans call them, bring sweet-cream voices and harmonies to a tremendous, ever-growing repertoire of gospel and R&B songs. They perform in a large variety of venues, and are joyous singing in virtually any situation from acapella to backing by a large band or orchestra.
They have performed at various California venues, including The Sportsman Club, The Playboy Club, Ester’s Orbit Room, the Savoy Club, and many others. One of their most memorable performances was with Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, The Main Ingredients and Lou Rawls at the Cal Expo in 1970.
Inducted into the Bay Area Blues Society Hall of Fame in 2006, The Hartfield Brothers have appeared with such recording artists as The Whispers, Lenny Williams, Larry Graham, Graham Central Station, The Pointer Sisters, Jesse James, Ike and Tina Turner, The Isley Brothers, and, many more.
In addition to their strong Christian faith, all three “Brothers” believe that “all things are possible if you trust in the Lord.”
