The Cowboy Church Band, Cuzin Gus and The Boyz (Nominated as Top 10 Comedy Act by ICM) and our guest The Josh Martin Band will perform.
No one has ever been able to adequately describe the sound of the Josh Martin Band. With each member coming from different musical backgrounds, the collective mix is unique. The vocal harmonies created by Josh Martin, Kelly Briscoe and Derek Hughes are formed from their days of singing in southern gospel groups. Martin’s accent and acoustic guitar style creates a mix of country and folk. Hughes and drummer Andrew Dodson both have jazz experience. In the end, the band’s sound isn’t what is important to them. The band’s aim is to bring glory to God through the Gospel. They strive to write theologically rich lyrics that point to a holy God and reveal our need for Jesus Christ. In the band’s opinion, the substance is far greater than the sound. But, in the case of the Josh Martin Band, it just so happens that the sound is great as well.
