Why hire 22five?
22FIVE is a Christian modern rock and roll band based in Atlanta, GA. While we enjoy the arenas and big-time festivals as much as the next band, we also realize the need to be a minstry for the local church of any size as well. We're versatile and can play for many different types of events, ranging from youth events and worship services to fairgrounds, block parties, community outreaches and music festivals.
Between 1988 and 1992 Brett, Steve and Sean toured the Southeast United States in the Christian rock band, Reign (along with keyboardist Matthew Carter and later guitarist Rob Carter). The band played for churches at camps, youth events, community events, and at festivals, including AgapeFest, Inner Seeds Fest (IS Fest) and Atlanta Fest, the Southeast's biggest Christian music festival. During that time we shared the stage with artists such as The Newsboys, Jacob's Trouble, The Waiting, The Choir, Adam Again, The Throes, Violet Burning, Guardian, Freedom of Soul, Dig Hay Zoose, Mad at the World, Cindy Morgan and others.
Reign released one project called i of the storm and began work on a second release, tentatively titled Even in the Dry Season, but the band broke up in 1992 and the guys thought the days of making music together were over and gone.
During that time, Brett traveled and lived across the country and immersed himself in music, being part of several bands and playing live in clubs before returning home (in more ways than one) and finding himself playing guitar in church worship again.
Stephen became a local hometown hero as a police officer. (He even delivered a baby via telephone during a 911 call! Wow!) He continues to protect and serve to this day and still manages to make time to keep beating the skins and preparing for the concert circuit.
Sean joined the praise teams of the churches he's been a part of and eventually settled into a role leading worship at Lakeland Community Church in Cumming, GA, until recently, when he resigned that post to take a background role in the praise team and focus more of his time on 22FIVE.
But thanks to the beauty of God's providence, in early 2009, the Brett, Stephen and Sean happened to hook up with each other again through the power of the Internet, and 22FIVE was born. The group is currently scheduling new concert dates and recording a new riff-driven modern rock project, tentatively called Taller Than Trees.
So the story begins anew, remaining to be told.
