Doors 7:00 PM / Show 8:00 PM
This event is all ages
Mac Powell grew up in Clanton, Alabama. His love affair with music began at an early age as both of his parents would sing and play guitar around the house. Mac soon began to sing in the little bitty Baptist church by day, and listen to his dad's record collection by night. The Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jim Croce, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, and Willie Nelson filled Mac's ears and imagination.
When Mac was a sophomore in high school, he moved to Atlanta, Ga where his passion for music and faith found an outlet in the band Third Day. The band has traveled the world and earned 4 Grammy awards while selling millions of albums and building a devoted fan base. Third Day has helped transform Christian music, and Third Day was honored by being entered into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame in 2009.
Though Third Day continues to go strong with a new release slated for later this fall, Mac has put together a collection of country songs that reach back into the musical influences of his childhood. The rootsy collection of foot-stompin', hand clappin' country tunes is a way for Mac to pay tribute to his early musical inspirations while showcasing some music with a bit more levity than Christian music affords.
We hope you enjoy the music, and look forward to the chance to play it for you live very soon.
Every King & Commoner
Every King & Commoner® (EK&C) is a multi- genre musical group established in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia (est. 2016). Band members include (Left to Right), Cody Christian (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Songwriter, Booking), Ben Mekkes (Piano, Keys, Synths, Drums, Production Manager), and Andrew Frech (Bass, Guitar, Pads, Social Media Manager, Head of Finance).
EK&C is known for their diverse sound, creative musicality and raw/energetic performances. Being an effective three piece has created many opportunities for the group and has allowed them to travel and play many different stages as well as open for groups like Welshly Arms and Matthew West.
Their debut single, Barabbas, was performed by Cody at the Immerse Conference 2016 in Nashville, TN, causing an eruption in crowd response, capturing the attention of industry panel judges. Cody’s vocal intertwined with the musical aptitude and creativity of Ben and Andrew make their songs come alive on stage. “This is an effective song that walks the line between Biblical and personal. Pretty haunting too. Perfect for the singer’s rough voice. I really like the organic sound of this band, and the singer is very believable and commercial.”
– Eric Copeland, President, Creative Soul Records, In Association with Word Entertainment.
