Seven Day Grace
Seven Day Grace Hailing from sunny Jacksonville, Florida, Seven Day Grace is a remarkable Christian band that seamlessly blends melodic and southern rock influences with outstanding musicianship, soaring vocals, and impressive lyrics in order to create memorable and meaningful worship experiences for concert audiences of all ages. Fans embrace the relevance, energy, and unique sound of Seven Day Grace, especially the melodic rock vibe threading throughout the band's music. Foremost, however, listeners are deeply moved by the atmosphere of celebration and worship that accompanies each Seven Day Grace concert. Seven Day Grace traces it's roots to a special evening in 2001, in the youth-filled cafeteria of Baker County High School in Macclenny, Florida. Assigned to provide live music for the Christian youth event, this cross-denominational group of youth leaders and church musicians brought together their musical talents...and rocked the night! They also discovered within each other a kindred spirit dedicated to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, service to their local churches, and musical excellence. The enthusiastic reception their music received made it clear that they had something...and so Seven Day Grace was born.... Each of the seven members of the band are dedicated, born-again Christians who are active in their local churches as Music Ministers, Youth Pastors, Sunday School Teachers, and Church Musicians. This solid grounding in their respective local churches keeps the band centered on lifting up Jesus Christ in every concert. More than a powerful musical experience, the band's greatest desire is that true, Christ-centered worship be an integral part of every performance. BIOS Mick Shatz / Lead Vocals.
