The Big House Band of Fargo Faith United Methodist Church will present a family-friendly concert at the Island Park Gazebo on Wednesday, August 28th. Joy for the Journey of Fargo First United Methodist Church will serve as the opening band for the night. The concert, which begins at 7:00 p.m. that evening, will feature a wide variety of popular contemporary Christian music. The performance is free of admission and open to all ages. People who wish to attend are encouraged to bring either a blanket or lawn chairs to the concert. Root beer floats will be served beginning at 6:30 p.m. until the end of the concert or until the ingredients run out.
The Big House Band, the worship team and band of Fargo Faith UMC since 2011, is comprised of a diverse group of musicians. Many of them have performed with long-standing popular bands of varying genres in the Fargo-Moorhead over the years to include The Front Fenders, Kid Hollywood, The Woofers, Helena Handbasket, The FM Kicks Band, The Jazz Arts Group, and the 188th Army Band just to name a few. Their combined experience results in the tight knit sound of a band with a cohesive and energetic rhythm section along with crisp three and four part vocal harmonies. The performance will be just as enjoyable for the crowd as it always is for the musicians who work together to make the music in the Big House Band.
Joy for the Journey, who will open up the performance, is the worship band for Fargo First UMC. The band is directed by Nancy Lilleberg.
“The beautiful thing about these two bands is that we’re not just part of a church band, but we’re a group of musicians that share our musical experiences with everyone, plus we communicate with our listeners, both personally and musically.” says Christopher Hanson, the director of the Big House Band. “We’re taking the talents that the good Lord gave us and using them at church, but we’re also personally making great music while developing great friendships, both in and outside of the church.”
The concept to put on this concert was simple - summer is a perfect time for an outdoor concert, and the gazebo at Island Park is a perfect place to do it.
“Summer is all about being outdoors, taking in these beautiful days that God provides.” says Hanson. “And to me, there’s just nothing better than kicking back at a nice outdoor venue with your friends and family enjoying some great inspiring music.”
