We're a Christian hard rock band devoted to sharing God's Grace thru r music. We're Christ centered ministry minded & evangelistic. We've been together since 86' & r very talented & anointed. We play original material & some cover music. We own a large P.A. & generator for outdoor events. We r skilled with the Word of God & regularly teach and preach a finished Christ centered work as the opportunity is presented. We r in our 40's so no spring chickens here. We all play professional gear and can play large to small events in various venues from nightclubs to churches but we r a loud rock band that puts out a lot of energy. Would love to be part of lifting up Christ at your event.

Additional Booking Notes
We do require lighting at the gig. If we bring our P.A. we still need a soud tech to run the board for long distance travel performances. If we bring our P.A. we will need access to plenty of electricity so a 200 amp service would be ample for our needs.
It changes on a regular basis

Influences & Inspiration
Grand Funk to all things hard rock and metal. Style wise Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Dream Theater & Queensryche. The groups we respect the most are bands like Petra and Bloodgood and Rez (link hidden)ose groups came out of or were influenced by the Jesus movement of the late 60's and 70's. Men like Keith Green who, although he wasn't hard rock, proclaimed The Rock of Ages with the passion & conviction of a guy who played it! Our music is intertwined with the Spirit and heart of our Savior. We r a group of guys who love the louder & heavier stuff because that is what we listened to in our adolecent years & that is what moved us. We have given our talents to Christ so that He can be glorified!
