The Ball Brothers
Thursday, 6:30 PM
When it comes to the Ball Brothers, forget what you know about other “gospel quartets.” Because this unique group stands in stark contrast to many preconceived notions regarding traditional quartet music, the Ball Brothers have found life “outside of the box.” Tenor vocalist, Andrew, states, “We’re a younger group and we’re a different kind of group. Since their formation in 2006, the Ball Brothers have rapidly made their mark in Christian music by finding a musical balance between the old and the new.
Few family names in Christian music evoke immediate thoughts of music like the name Crabb and Gaither. Adam is a member of the legendary Crabb Family and lead singer for the Gaither Vocal Band. Adam has been referred to as the “face of youth” in the Southern Gospel world, often bridging the gap between grandparents, parents and children.
The Breakfast Club
Friday, 8:00 PM
The Breakfast Club is a high energy rock / dance 80’s tribute band, whose every song is a hit that brings the house down with spontaneous, exuberant ‘I know this song!’ singalongs.” Moonwalk down memory lane with The Breakfast Club as they spin you right round to all the radical sounds, styles, and way cool dance steps from the 1980’s In over-the-top retro 80’s attire.
