Those kids are AMAZING! A bunch of young teens and a dad that like to rock for Jesus! With a solid gospel message that edifies ! They sound like Journey meets Casting Crowns and Stryper & Switchfoot and Firefly!

Biography

Dad (Gregg) is an accomplished singer/songwriter/Worship leader that fervently exposed his 2 boys to music while in the womb! After years of piano lessons and singing around the piano and guitar sing alongs @ campfires on the beach, the boys found drums and guitars and wanna do what dad does, only bigger and louder! With the children's pastor's son on bass guitar, they started out as the house worship band in the "Kidzone" children's ministry @ their home church. (Still there as of 5/2010). Now with another 7th grade buddy from their homeschool on rhythm guitar & vocals, they are getting bookings like never before! www.TheRaptured.com is a group of Christian musicians that play "music that edifies" and this coming Summer of 2010 is looking like their biggest season to date ~ playing LIVE concerts! Looking for a Record deal, please.
