"Reference Letter"

[Regarding December 20, 2008, booking]

Jan 17, 2009

To those who appreciate great music:

Our organization had the good fortune to book the band Xiomy for our holiday event this year. Holiday for Hope was created by Dreams for Kids and is the largest holiday celebration for homeless and underprivileged kids in the world, held in over 30 countries.

Our Chicago event brings over 1,000 kids to one location for a spectacular day of generosity, face painters, games, and the true Spirit of the Holidays. For the first time, this year we added live music. We could not have made a better choice than Xiomy.

In a crowd of more distractions then you can place in one room. Xiomy captivated the guests and were a tremendous addition to the day. This band not only knows how to play a room, they feature artists who are talented, charismatic, and professional in every regard.

If you are considering hiring Xiomy for your event, don’t hesitate because they will be booked solid. Just don’t ask for them on the third Saturday in December – we have that date covered and our guests’ will be looking for an encore!

"Reference Letter #2"

[Regarding April 25, 2009, booking]

To Whom It May Concern:

My name is Peter Rome. I have worked for Edan Concerts since 2006. I
am head of production. Recently, I have had an opportunity to personally
work with the band Xiomy.

We co-hosted an event up in Schaumburg for Phil’s Friends Cancer Walk.
We sponsored a competition for 8 bands to sell tickets for placement before
“Big Daddy Weave.”

Xiomy was our top seller of tickets. They have a great following and seem
to have a true heart for their music and it’s reflection on the Lord.

They were great to work with. Very easy going. They really rocked the
house with their energetic performance.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me via email:

Thank You for your time

"Reference Letter #3"

[Regarding April 25, 2009, booking]

To Whom It May Concern:

I am please to write to you and recommend Xiomy Gonzales and her band to perform at
your venue.

I recently became acquainted with Xiomy at the Phils Friends Event we co-sponsored.
They have quite a following. Still so humble and very filled with a passion for our Almighty
God. It was a pleasure working with them on and off the scenes. On stage - they can really
keep the audiences’ attention. There is alot of interaction between the band members and
it seems like they have been together forever. They also jump around alot which the young
people love. Off stage they were very friendly and respectful. It was a true pleasure to meet
each one of them.

They even helped us at the Edan Concerts Booth when their booth was slow. And speaking
of booths. I also play a key roll in the Voice of Hope Youth Ranch (VOH). It’s is a refuge for
neglected and abused teens and children. A place to find hope and positive reinforcement.

Edan Concerts and VOH have a partnership. Xiomy and her band have committed themselves
to our cause and plan to donate their time to perform at a benefit concert. She personally
comes to our events and helps with the VOH booth to get the word out.

Seems like everyone they come in contact with is touched by their Godliness and their love
for the Lord. If you choose to include them, you will be truly blessed by each one of them.

Thank You for your time

Beautiful Release. 2008. Arias Records.



Originally organized under the name "Xiomy" in June 2008, the band changed their name a year later. Consistent with the themes of brokenness, pain, fallenness, hope, healing, and redemption, the name Rescue became the band's banner in June 2009.

The desire and need for rescue is common to the human experience.
We've all hurt ourselves, God, and others.
We can't save ourselves, hard as we try.

In the midst of themselves being works in progress, Rescue's mission is to hurt with the hurting and share the hope of the rescue mission.

The band is made up of Xiomy Gonzalez with vocals, Roy Gonzalez on the drums, Jonathan Gornick on guitar, Keith French on electric guitar, and Joel Kathan on bass. Rescue has shared the stage with several different artists such as Superchick, Matthew West, Seabird, Building 429, John Reuben, Todd Agnew, Luminate, Big Daddy Weave, Josh Wilson, Remedy Drive, Everyday Sunday, Brooke Barrettsmith, Bread of Stone, Kimber Rising, Since October, This Fires Embrace, Escape the Dark, The Spark, and State Of Isaac.
