"Audience of One" came out and performed at a recent outdoor concert we had at our church. They were professional, easy to work with, and most of all had a remarkable spirit of love and kindness! They performed several songs and brought a fun-filled feeling to the crowd. Their music is upbeat, inspiring, and family friendly! I cannot say enough about this group and what they bring to Christian entertainment. If you are looking for a great time of music and entertainment for your next event, look no further than these guys!
Response from Audience of One:
Thank you for your review, Michelle. It was our pleasure to perform at your event. We pray that God will bless your efforts beyond even what you can imagine. God is good!
We absolutely loved having the band perform at our church. They were full of the spirit and energy! Everyone really enjoyed the songs & the enthusiasm of the band. What a wonderful way to spread the word and share Gods love. We will be working on having the band perform again at our church in the near future. Thank you again!! God bless you guys for all that you do!! From Covenant Presbyterian Church Gainesville Florida
Response from Audience of One:
Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to performing there again. Real joy and blessing comes through service and you have been a blessing to us.
What to Expect
We pride ourselves in making our shows both entertaining, inspirational and always family friendly. There's a certain chemistry in a band and ours is no exception. We are all brothers in Christ and it is that spirit which bonds us. We love what we do and I believe it shows in how our audiences typically responds to our performances.
Joe is our bass player and the leader of the band, at least he thinks he is. Seriously, he has had years of experience touring nationwide. He's from North Carolina and speaks with a southern drawl but we don't hold that against him, bless his heart.
Paul, our lead singer, is an amazing vocal talent. I guarantee you've never seen the types of vocal acrobatics that he can do. He also tells a joke or two and we pretend he's funny. Well maybe he is...a little.
Bob is our lead guitar player. Well versed in all genre of music and a natural at what he does. He's a yankee originally from Connecticut and a proficient songwriter. Well, someone has to write the lyrics to all the songs that we do.
Fred, our drummer, is the newest member of our band. We don't know him yet. Just kidding, he's the one that keeps us all together. He has spent time with many bands but I'm pretty sure he's found a home with us.
Finally, I'm Mark and it's my job to just sort of fill in the gaps. I play rhythm guitar and sing a little but my jokes are better than Paul's.
Every time we take the stage we feel honored to be in the presence of the most high GOD, to be a part of the greatest story ever told, to play for the Audience of One. After much prayer and deliberation we changed the trajectory of our ministry. We originally started as the praise band "Redemption by Grace" (many many thanks to Darryl Suchan) but after hearing groups such as the "Apologetix" and "Righteous Pop Music", we felt that performing Christian parody would expand our ministry to reach an audience that ordinarily would not go to a formal church service. It was from this desire that Audience of One was formed.
Here are some fundamental guidelines we feel represent our desires for the project.
Our goals are:
• To reach people who may not attend a formal church service and present them with the saving knowledge of our loving Savior Jesus Christ.
• To provide a safe, neutral concert setting for all ages.
• To encourage all people through music that has a positive message.
We do this with classic “Rock and Roll” Christian parody music that has a message that is theologically sound and morally uplifting; believing that it is OK for Christians to enjoy stirring entertainment that represents our God in a positive way. At the end of the show we want people to go away having been entertained and spiritually/morally uplifted—some not even realizing they’ve just been exposed to a church experience. It is our belief that Christian influenced music can be both entertaining and spiritual and that’s how we present it.
If you believe that this project could be of benefit to you or your group we have a few ways to enjoy and support this cause.
