Thankful Thursday, Bands.
Music........has always been such a major influence in my life. I was a hard core rocker growing up....and even now. I am so Thankful for the Contemporary Christian music of today. Even an old rocker like myself can find bands to "get it". So today I am Thankful for....
DC Talk, the band pictured above, was my first taste of Christian music I could really get into, still love the first song of theirs I heard.. a remake of "Jesus Is Just Alright". Alas, they are not together anymore....but they are still putting out "whack" music individually which leads me to....
Toby Mac... a true man with a message...a rapper/hip hop artist. His music never fails to excite me...and his concerts are the real thing. I've seen him many times...and always walk away fulfilled.
Family Force 5... my, my what can I say about them. They are from my home state of Georgia. The first video I saw of their's..did not like at all. But, they were an opening act a couple of years ago for Toby Mac's Winter Slam tour...they ROCKED the house with rock, punk, funk and everything else!! When I want to pump it up in the van...they are always my first choice. My daughter Shea has even learned the words to her favorite songs....the best is "Drama Queen"...SNAP!
Skillet...They were the first real ROCK Christian band I've been drawn to. Love their messages. I saw them in concert last May and am taking my youth group to see them in December......Rock On....
Decyfer Down...They were an opening act for Skillet....they tore it down!!! Very hard core rockers...heavy bass...and heavy beat...head banging music...loved them!
So there you have one of my most Thankfuls.....I would not be the person I am today without the music I have listened to over the years...Thanks to all these artists for producing music with a message for all!!
