It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of one of our founding members. Friday, December 9th, Tim Griffith passed away. Everyone who knew him loved him. He's in Heavens band now and no longer in pain.


We will miss you brother!!/Obituary

The TRIUMPHS are at it again.  We’ve done it…once, twice and now a third and final time. 

The TRIUMPHS have decided to finally retire.  We tried it before and it just wasn’t time… but now, after 61 glorious years of good times and great memories, it’s finally time to have our last few hoorahs and play “Turn On Your Love Light” a final time because…


“We gotta go”   ….’we gotta go’                     “We gotta go”   ….’we gotta go’

“Hope you had a good time”… ‘hope you had a good time’


We sure did and it’s all because of YOU, our family, friends, fans and loved ones.  If you hadn’t supported The TRIUMPHS all these years, we never would have made it this long.  It has been an honor and privilege to grow older along side of you while we played “the oldies”. 

We have three public shows that will round out our final tour, we sure hope to see you there.

December 31  – The Silos, Giddings, Texas

January 28 – Riverside Hall, East Bernard, Texas

February 18 – Swiss Alp Hall, (Between Schulenburg & La Grange)

We always love to give you guys something to remember us by so for our last two shows, we will have  TRIUMPHS 2023 FAREWELL TOUR  shirts available for sale.

Check out the events sections for ticket information for these shows.

If we don’t see you at one of the shows…


Thanks for all the good times!!
