The Encounter Project was born in 2009 from a church praise and worship band. They grew close, not only through the love of music, but also their common interest in community service. Jacob is a firefighter in Dripping Springs. Bryan, Robin, and Cullen were all lifeguards. They had so much fun playing together and enjoyed performing their secular originals and covers, that they began taking gigs at various bars, private parties, and fundraisers. Jacob Taylor Wade, 24, fronts the band with vocals, rhythm guitar, and harmonica, and writes most of their originals. Bryan Chenault, 23, plays lead guitar and is a contributing songwriter. Robin Mordecai, 21, multi-instrumentalist, lays down the groove on drums and sings harmony while on stage. Also a contributing songwriter, he produced their latest CD and played a variety of instruments in the studio. Cullen Strange, 21, adds some sweet bass lines into the mix.

Austin-based Christian blues and rock band, The Encounter Project, will perform live at the MainStreet Theatre Dec. 18 to celebrate the Christmas season and help raise funds for the theater's operational expenses.
"What I'm hoping is, this concert will get families to go out and celebrate the season together," the event's organizer Betty Birdwell said.
Birdwell commissioned The Encounter Project to perform at the MainStreet Theater after she heard them perform in Point Comfort.
"They knocked my socks off. I just loved them," she said.
The four-piece Encounter Project - featuring lead singer Jacob Wade, lead guitarist Bryan Chenault, bass guitarist Cullen Strange, and drummer Robin Mordecai - is slated to perform a two-hour set of original songs, praise and worship, and popular Christmas Carols, Birdwell said.
The concert will be held Saturday, Dec. 18, from 8 to 10 p.m. Admission is $5 for students and $7 for adults. Tickets are available at the door.
Refreshments including popcorn and soda will be served at the theater.
