The Gracious Vine Christian Band captures the heart of your group with passionate vocals, earthy tones and dynamic lyrics. Music and messages, minister deeply and engage the individual in a personal encounter with God.
With original songs and well known covers, audiences will more than observe they will participate in an event of worship, encountering the presence of God in personal transformative ways.
Gracious Vine, Led by Joanna Fruhauf who is also a Christian Speaker and author of two books, she serves events and groups with music ministry and messages geared to impact the heart and stir the spirit! She has the ability to create all inclusive events with both music & message
The hallmark of a great event is when you walk away having thoroughly enjoyed yourself and have a new awareness, that is what I experienced at an evening where Gracious Vine performed and Joanna spoke.
I give both my highest endorsement.
As a Nashville recording artist I can tell you from experience that whether you are a promoter, audience member, worship leader sharing an altar or artist sharing a stage with Gracious Vine you will be changed. This is band of people who talk the talk but walk the walk in the most authentic way possible. This is a band who's hearts come together during every song and beats as one with ever tap of the kick drum. I dare say you wont find a vocalist on Long Island that can move you the way Joanna's rich and soulful voice does. There is a reason this band is a favorite everywhere they go both on stage and off. They are an inspiration to all who come in contact with them and you will most definitely find yourself humming their tunes throughout your day.
Response from Gracious Vine:
Wow, Tom, what a blessing, thank you for your review...We've always enjoyed working with you. May the Lord richly bless your continued impact and influence in Nashville!
Author and Songwriter Joanna Fruhauf was interviewed on "Inspired Blessings with Jean Marie Prince" and was a very nice guest to interview. Joanna was very knowledgeable with her study of the Bible while being questioned. She also has a unique voice that makes the "Gracious Vine Band" enjoyable to listen to!
Ran into their ministry on iTunes of all places.. Had the pleasure of seeing them At Memorial Baptist Church.. It was an excellent performance , above and beyond all my expectations look forward to seeing them again in the future!
The Fish & Loaves couldn't have asked for a better home concert than the evening we hosted Gracious Vine Music & Ministries! Although we're still in an audience-building phase, Joanna and crew blessed our inn with the music, lyrics, gospel and ministry that we've come to expect with each and every visit. When two or more are gathered in His name, surely He is in our midst. We'd welcome the band back any time for yet another encore, just to keep reminding us who it is that we serve...blessings and best always from the Fish & Loaves Bed and Breakfast!!
One of our top rated shows, Sunday Worship & Talk, reached over 45,000 listeners the Sunday Gracious Vine came to visit hamiltonradio.net. Listeners messaged our station with nothing more than positive comments as to how inspired they were by their music. We can't wait to have them back in 2017.
Response from Gracious Vine:
Thank you Art! It was a pleasure being with you and the team at HamiltonRadio.net. We so enjoyed our time with you, and look forward to come back again!
Joanna Fruhauf is a gifted speaker and powerful worship leader. Her heart's desire is to empower others to be equipped, engaged and inspired to draw close to the Lord. Her vehicle for that expression shines through her music, lyrics and biblical content. Joanna is spiritually confident saturated with compassion bathed in deep anointing of the Holy Spirit! Gracious Vine as a whole will lift anyone out of their chair with hand's lifted high to heaven. Their music, both original and familiar, will have you worshiping and praising the Lord!
Gracious Vine was professional, worshipful, a true example of Christians being fair in business and exhibiting Christ throughout the events planned. Great musicality and showmanship. I would not hesitate to hire them again.
Johanna and her daughter Deborah came to speak at our church for a Women's Tea. I had a theme in mind which Johanna geared her talks and scripture verses around brilliantly. She also provided the worship music using her lovely voice and musical talent. It was a blessed day ordained by God.
Addendum-we did not have the worship, just Johanna and her daughter. Stars are rated accordingly.
Response from Gracious Vine:
Thank You Wendy, We enjoyed being with all of the Ladies at your church - It was a wonderful Day, and a Pleasure to Meet you! Sharing with the women was a pleasure for Deborah and myself right before Mother's Day! It is always a great pleasure to meet new friends and sisters in the Lord, to share Christ, and make Him Know in Word and Worship!
I've had the privilege of co-ministering with Gracious Vine on several occasions and have found they're all professional in NOT only their musical talents, but in their operation as a band. They have a musical style that is uniquely their own from earthy tones to passionate lyrics. Book them today for your next event and enjoy the worship style that only they can bring.

Response from Gracious Vine:
Thank you Samantha! It is always a privilege to minister at 'Lil Bit of Heaven! Everyone is always so receptive and open! What a pleasure!
Gracious Vine has a depth to their music and lyrics that leaves you feeling as if you had spent time in the holy presence of God himself.
Each member of the band has a humble heart and a talent that they so willingly share with all.
Gracious Vine is the whole package for any event. At the heart of the worship band's soulful sound is lead vocalist, Joanna Fruhauf, who is also gifted bible teacher and speaker. She always delivers a captivating and challenging message that sets your heart on fire. From the moment I met Joanna at our first Women's Conference at our church, I felt like we were best friends. She has a true heart for the Lord, and we invite her back every year to share with us.
