What to Expect
You can expect a concert experience, with crazy-good vocals, lead guitar riffs, and basically rocking the house down. Stone Castle has created their own classic rock-type sound with original songs, parodied well-known classic rock music, as well as cover songs. Audiences can relate to the music, and the words can minister to their soul.
The band launched itself in 2010, seeking to bring the classic rock sound back into Christian music, to reach the generation that keeps secular classic rock radio stations in business. Music and lyrics bring audience members to their feet, rocking and praising the Lord. Great for all ages!
Lately, but not exclusively, many of our gigs have involved playing for the homeless, playing for those struggling with addictions, as well as playing for those wanting to jam out and have fun. Our mission is to reach out to the hurting (of all walks of life) and lift them up with music they love, with words that will speak to their soul, and resonate in their heart even after the concert is done. God is glorified in all we do, in all we say, and to Him be all the praise.
