Based in the tradition of contemporary Christian Music, the band formed a few years ago out of the inspiration of Joe Leone, a Theology major and Dan's son who inspired "Dad" to re-kindle his love for performing live again like in the good ol' days with his signed rock band on Columbia Records back in the late 1960's. Success came quickly as they found a need to bring contemporary Christian music to teens and young adults so that they could relate to their faith in God and inspire them to become active members of a Faith Community. Early influences were Chris Tomlin, Lincoln Brewster, Bob Rice, Martin Doman and many others. Our music and testimony invites the audience to join in song, praise and worship. We call it Spirit Rock because it truly rocks the soul!

. In the summer of 2008, SpiritN3D released their first CD called “These Three Nails” composed of 10 original songs written by the band members. Our second released CD was called "Stand Firm". Then several months ago I was inspired by a workshop about God being present in everything and everyone we encounter each day of our lives and how I only needed to stop my busy life to recognize Him. For me, it was confirmation at a time that I truly needed to know that "He’s Real". It wasn’t long after that I met Miriam Lili, a songwriter from Australia on a Christian songwriter’s website who helped me finish a song that I struggled to complete. Then I realized how much God truly loves me because the songs just kept flowing back and forth from Miriam. She would compose a song and send it to me for a listen and wow, I had a co-writer with a passion for our Lord. In November of 2012 Dan Leone released the 4th SpiritN3D CD called "From Dubai To You" with Miriam Lili on keyboards and a new lead guitarist named Samuel Castilla on each song. This CD was a result of my re-location to the middle east and bringing Chist's message to those in the Arab world.

These talented artists were a sheer delight. Together they made music that touched the hearts of all present. We decided to have Spiritn3D perform to kick off a new ministry at our Parish, The Corporal Works of Mercy Ministry. Our Parish Family has stepped forth together to help the Poor of Haiti. To have Sprirtn3D perform seemed only fitting. Dan Leone has done many wonderful things to help the people of Haiti. This connection was a sure fit for our Kick off. We were fortunate to be able to present HHF with a check that evening, and today we continue to help those less fortunate then ourselves. We look forward to having Spriritn3D return to our Parish Center. It was certainly an evening well spent listening to the words of God, surrounded by family and friends.”

Their music ministry was so up-lifting and spiritual. The tightness and song selection had everyone clapping and singing for joy. I was truly blessed to have them perform . It was God's calling. People at the coffee house were asking when are they coming back. Bring em' back! I plan on it and check out their CD.”

B..."SpiritN3D is a wonderful lyrical group of musicians with melodious voices making beautiful music. But, their primary band instrument is their love to share the ministry of Jesus Christ. In addition to sharing spirit-filled music, SpiritN3D doesn't just sing a monotonous string of songs. These band members engage their audience members by sharing important ministry messages and beautiful testimonies of personal struggles before finding the victory in Jesus Christ."

“The retreat was awesome! I really appreciated the time and effort of Teen Challenge to put this together. The retreat gave me the chance to be with God and to make friends from the DWC (Dartmouth Women's Center) and to praise God as a group. The band SpiritN3D was great. I really had a good time."
“Ok, I loved the music-especially the original compositions, you all performed them with such soul: but my greatest lesson of the retreat weekend came from the commitment you showed driving two hours to perform and, then driving back all to spread the Holy Spirit. I loved the lesson your actions showed…..the selflessness and the sharing of your love. I want that kind of commitment.
“The band SpiritN3D was the most amazing performance I'd ever seen and heard in my life. The women were so enlighten and I really believe that I have more Faith and Love than I have ever had. God is great all the time!”
“SpiritN3D did a great job using original hymns and songs and turning it into rock music. The retreat went really well and I greatly appreciated them driving two hours back and forth giving us two hours of great music out of the kindness of their hearts to bring God's Love to us”.
“I loved everything about the Retreat. The band SpiritN3D lifted everyone up praising the Lord and feeling filled with the Holy Spirit. It was beautiful and I recommend it for anyone who wants to experience the inner peace of God’s Love.”
“I enjoyed the retreat very, very, very, much. I thought it was awesome for Teen Challenge and SpiritN3D to come and spend their weekend with us in jail. The band was cool! This was a nice experience.”
