Music: David Crowder Band at AMP Friday

Jill M. Rohrbach

I know it’s hot. But there’s still a concert worth catching this weekend at the Arkansas Music Pavilion, an outdoor music venue, in Fayetteville. A Billboard top 100 Christian artist, The David Crowder Band plays at AMP at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $27 and gates open at 6 p.m.

The David Crowder Band was formed at Baylor University during the early 1990s when lead vocalist David Crowder noticed half of the students were not attending church. He and Chris Seay started University Baptist Church in response, and Crowder began writing songs to incorporate into the worship times. You can pretty much figure out the rest of the story.

The band was signed to sixsteprecords/Sparrow Records after their album All I Can Say was released in 1999. Since then the band has released six more albums to date and tours the United States continuously. The band is known to incorporate unconventional instruments and elements into their music, as they consistently explore new realms of musical diversity. Their genre includes bluegrass, folk, alternative and worship with a touch of electronic ambience. They have even been known to incorporate Smule’s “I Am T-Pain” iPhone app into their recordings.
