We are a cover/original band for Christian events. Including multiple day retreats to a 30 song set for a full stage live show, this young band has done it all. When they start to play, even other musicians stop to listen. They can get any crowd warmed up or can be the background band for an entire show. You can have complete faith that this band will come prepared for whatever music you need performed, with both a concert and worship feel. Look under performance set list to see examples of some typical sets they have been asked to play.
Thank you so much for yesterday. It was the best Sunday we've had so far since the launch. Received tremendous positive feedback yesterday and all day today.

I was a vendor out at "The Great South Bay Music Festival" I heard them and loved the set list, when I went over and actually saw how old they all were, I was flawed. I can't speak more highly on how great and captivating a band they are.
On behalf of Theresa and the LIAA – but very personally, I do want to say MANY, MANY THANKS!! GRAZIE!
From the very first positive email and phone conversation – as well as our subsequent emails, you were such a delight; generous; a professional, and a genuine gent! Greatly appreciated!!
The loan and set up of the sound equip was also so amazingly kind and above and beyond the creative call!
AND the band was FABULOUS! ;-)
Keep me posted if I can be of service to you or the group going forward.
All my best.
Hi, I had the pleasure of hearing your band in person At the Smithtown Fair today, I was quite impressed. Awesome Vocals, Musicians and message, our savior Jesus Christ lives. Thank you for sharing your wonderful music, I look forward to seeing you again. If you have a mailing list please put me on it. You can find me at Pattimorrone.com, www.Reverbnation.com/Pattimorrone . God Bless you all.
I want to personally thank you and your band, as well as on behalf of everyone at S.U.M.C. for all the hard work you endured, and the splendid performance by the youth ministry that day.
A fine group of aspiring young artists that I am sure you are proud of.
Many thanks to them all for an outstanding performance, and an inspiration for our small youth ministry here in Smithtown.
Looking forward to hearing them again. Please include me on their E-mail list.
Sincerely I remain,
Very truly yours,
Pursuing JC is amazingly talented! I don't think there was a single person who didn't gush over how wonderful they are. I hope that the kids had as much fun performing as we did having them.
I hope we can work together in the future. I'd better hurry up and plan a musical event before they are signed or off to Harvard, whichever comes first.
Be well and God bless
I am blessed to have met you and all of the members and families of Pursuing JC. You are a very special
group of people who are kind, gifted, professional, and fun! This was, by far, the best show I have produced
and that is largely due to all of you. Everyone I speak to can't say enough about this amazing group of
kids... they really rocked the house as you knew they would! You are one in a million.
I sincerely hope that the kids enjoyed their journey and have all grown personally and professionally as a result of
this experience. With you as their fearless leader, I am certain they will continue to grow and go very far in life!
Thank you, for everything, specially for making my final show and my farewell everything I hoped and dreamed it
Please keep Don and I posted about where the kids will be playing in the future, we are forever fans.
With love and appreciation,
Lori Thomas Donaudy
Executive Director, LI Pageants
What to Expect
Pursuing JC's live show is built for all audiences. It will leave young audiences dancing in the isles, with transitions that will compels hands to be raised through emotional and compelling worship songs. There is something compelling about watching young worship leaders express their love and affection for Jesus Christ, while not losing their youthful approach to worship.
If you are looking for a youthful approach to your Event, Worship, Concert, Youth Service, or retreat and want motivating and encouraging entertainment with a fresh approach, you can book us to deliver a message, designed for your audience.
HISTORY: The Pursuing JC band first started at Shelter Rock Church back in 2011 and began as a youth group band with just one song. However, once heard they quickly found that their level of playing ability gained them much deserved attention and they were soon invited to churches and festivals throughout Long Island and eventually through the East Coast.
Since 2013, they performed over 300 shows. The band has a reputation of producing an amazing technical sound and at only 15 years of age you won’t want to miss the fast paced drumming of Corinne DeRosa, who’s pink drum sticks are always well in hand. Corinne won a national drumming competition at the age of 13, competing against drummers from around the country, between the ages of 13-19.
With a name like Pursuing JC it is clear that this is a Christian band but their hope is to cross the boundaries. “I think what I want them to take away especially non-Christians is that it’s true that we are a church derived band but there are songs even on regular radio that have messages of hope and faith. For all of us, we believe that no matter what is happening in your life heaven has a plan for all of us.”
GOALS: “There is a lot of talk about our generation and how we are a soiled generation. I don’t want people to leave just knowing our music or performance ability but rather to take away hope for our generation and to maybe rethink it. Not that we are better or different but I want them to realize that maybe they have misjudged our generation.”
