This Is Only a Test
The Crosstones formed when Rev. Mark DeAngelis and Mark Rogers met one another at church in Front Royal, VA. Both had played professionally, Rogers the guitar and DeAngelis the drums. Rogers called one day and asked DeAngelis if he would be interested in a used drum kit. This led to a jam session and the seed for the formation of The Crosstones was planted! The band has just released their new single "A Simple Time" in November of 2008, which climbed to #7 on the Soundclick chart within a week. OUR MISSION To feed the Lord's sheep through music, ministry, fellowship and food! OUR MINISTRY: "Will Play For Food." Our ministry is centered upon feeding the hungry. We ask a host church or venue to sponsor us to come and play at their facility. We ask that the price of admission to the show be a non-perishable food item. The food collected can be donated to a local food pantry, food bank, or needy families in the area. We normally have two sets of music with an intermission of about 30 minutes. This allows our host to raise money by selling refreshments during the intermission. We can either play the two sets or have another group join us to perform the first set. We take up a love offering during the second set and we give 10% of that offering back to our host. The balance is split between the two bands.
