Music Scene, July 29-July 5
No apologies here.
Members of The Corey Brooks Band — Corey, Daniel, Alec and T.K. — do not apologize for keeping Jesus in the forefront of their music and are taking that message to the world one concert at a time.
Contemporary Christian group The Corey Brooks Band, touring to promote its May 2012 release “Take Over the World,” will perform at 10 a.m. Sunday, July 1, at Wayside Chapel, 42480 Colorado Highway 141, in Gateway.
Corey Brooks, a multi-award winning singer/songwriter and youth pastor, formed the band in 2009 after a seven-year stint as a soloist, according to the “about the band” section at http://www.coreybrooksband.com.
As a soloist, Brooks “opened for T-Bone, Newsboys and Aaron and Amanda Crabb and shared the stage with artists such as Michael English, Randy Owen, Brian Littrell, Richie McDonald, Ricky Skaggs, Emerson Drive, Craig Morgan, Point of Grace, and more,” the website said.
He’s received a GMA Dove nomination, won an ICM Award for New Artist of the Year and has had No. 1 songs at home and abroad.
In 2011, The Corey Brooks Band performed at fairs, festivals and arenas, alongside Christian music bands Manafest and Sidewalk Prophets among others.
Admission is free to the Wayside Chapel concert, and donations will be accepted.
