Every summer, 30-50 college students gather at Keynote’s Indiana headquarters to be trained and sent out on the road to proclaim God’s love through music and the performing arts. The posts in this weblog are taken from email reports sent by each of these touring teams.
Here are the 2007 bands:
- Talk about a band that doesn’t pull any punches. Modern rock band, Mangofish, is raw and refreshing and lays the Truth out in a way that screams “This is what you’re searching for!” Covering bands like Jimmy Eat World, 3 Doors Down, and Relient K, Mangofish offers an unapologetic hope wrapped up in a rocking show.
- Everyone wants to be accepted for who they really are. Acoustic rock band, Young Isaac, invites people to take off the masks they hide behind and put on their true identities. With honest, jazzy undertones, they share songs from artists like Lifehouse, KT Tunstall, and Sonya Kitchell. Young Isaac seeks to strike a chord with the audience at every show.
- High energy pop rock band, Swerve, rocks the crowd in body and spirit. Playing songs from musicians like Plumb, Flyleaf, and Paramore, Swerve is real and transparent. What they give is real music, real life stories, and real movement closer and closer to Jesus.
- Sometimes you’ve just got to throw your hands up in praise. Worship band, Proof of Purchase, offers an edgy and passionate time of worship. Singing songs from artists like the David Crowder Band, Chris Tomlin, and Kutless, their core desire is to guide people into the presence of the Lord.
- The Impact Movement ministers to African American college students. Their band, Infinit Impact, covers contemporary urban gospel artists such as Kirk Franklin, Tye Tribbett, MaryMary and Donnie McClurkin, to present the perspective that life can be immeasurably greater with a connection to its author – Jesus Christ.
