Carolina Boys (????-????; 2002-2004; 2009-Present)

The first incarnation of the Carolina Boys was a regional group based in North Carolina.

In 2002 after the death of Eldridge Fox, the Kingsmen Quartet name was retired and ownership of the Kingsmen name was transferred to Charles Burke. Most of the former Kingsmen members regrouped as the Carolina Boys under the management of bass singer Ray Dean Reese. In April and May of 2003, the Carolina Boys song "God Sits On High" held the number one position on the Singing News airplay chart. In 2004, Charles Burke transferred ownership of the Kingsmen name to Ray Dean Reese, and the Carolina Boys name was once again dormant.

Meanwhile, a group using the name Total Praise Quartet had been operating since 1998. In 2009, they adopted the Carolina Boys name with the blessing of Ray Dean Reese.
