The Matthew Ward Band concerts are just a week and a half away and you really don't want to miss one of them!
If you were a Christian in the 70's and 80's, then you were likely exposed to the "Jesus Music" of the time. For so many of us, it was a new sound of the Christian message being expressed through modern music and we drank it up! The group "The 2nd Chapter of Acts" were pioneers in making beautiful harmonies with very unique musical and lyrical ideas. They were two sisters and a brother. Matthew Ward was the little brother. He and his sister Nellie, were adopted by their older sister Annie and her husband Buck Herring after their parents died when Matthew was 12 and Nellie was 14. They began to sing around the piano together songs that Annie was writing about her new found faith in Jesus and out of that "The 2nd Chapter of Acts" was formed!
Matthew was just 13
when they began performing and recording! And then he recorded his first solo album by the age of 18!
The harmonies of the 2nd Chapter of Acts were always amazing, but what really made them, was Matthew's amazing, acrobatic, sort of "Stevie Wonder" vocal style! It's amazing to think how young he began sounding like that and that now, almost 50 years later, he still sounds amazing!
DID YOU KNOW
that Matthew sang backup vocals on Donna Summer's huge hit
"She Works Hard for the Money"?!
He has toured every state in the US as well as 30 countries! He's released 9 solo albums and 15 albums with the 2nd Chapter of Acts!
AND NOW, AMAZINGLY, HE'S COMING TO THE MUSIC FACTORY FOR TWO NIGHTS!!!
And here's another amazing thing, he and his band are coming with no financial guarantee!
They are paying their own expenses and will just be receiving 80% of the ticket sale income!!
Now here's the not so good part, I'm not sure why, but we still have quite a few tickets left for these concerts.
I would really hate to see this amazing artist have a small audience and take a financial hit for coming all the way here!
So I really want to encourage you to come out to one of these concerts and invite some friends! You will be hugely blessed! But your ticket purchase will also be a contribution Matthew Ward's great, Kingdom-minded ministry!
Again, the dates are Friday and Saturday, August 2nd and 3rd at 8 PM. Tickets are $40.00 in advance and $45.00 at the door. Seating is general admission and doors open at 7:30 PM. CLICK BELOW TO ORDER TICKETS!
