The Rockin’ Psalms is made up of veterans of Cup O Joy’s open mic nights. All are employed outside of their concerts, but have turned their passion for music and love for the Cup O Joy into a ministry where they play to raise money for the Cup O Joy ministry in Green Bay.
They take the Psalms and put them into a contemporary music format much like the Israelites did in David’s day. However, they utilize guitar, bass, drums, harmonica and flute. Here are just a few songs they have written: Psalm 8 How Excellent is Thy Name and Psalm 29 Give Unto the Lord.

Abigail is a contemporary Christian song writer. She writes songs from her heart and sings from her heart. She has a clear crisp sound set to acoustic guitar accompaniment that is easy to listen to. Abigail has recently performed at Harmony By the Bay, Cup O’ Joy, and Manitowoc Praisefest. Also, she is currently recording a CD of her music. Below is a snippet taken from her About page on Facebook:
“But what I do know is that God exists and has a greater plan than we could ever dream up on our own. He loves us and wants us to commit our lives to Him. This is the greatest joy we will ever find. Many, if not all, of the songs I have written are what I feel God wants to speak to me or other people. I can honestly say I didn’t think up most of the lyrics on my own, but rather had them spoken into my heart by the Creator. I hope you have a chance to listen to some of my music, and if it touches you, just know that it’s Him, not me. ”

Tim Dorsey, an international entertainer of prodigious musical talents, has been singing since the late 1970s. He has an extensive vocal range, possesses breathtaking versatility and has a natural gift for vocal styling.
Audiences that have been captivated by this multi-talented singer/songwriter sense in him a freshness, a purity and an unspoiled quality untainted by crass commercialism.
If you close your eyes and listen to him sing a Stevie Wonder medley, you can’t help but be awestruck by the similarity in vocal expression between the two performers. As flattering as that comparison is, Tim has his own distinct musical styling that is characterized by precise phrasing and a velvet-smooth delivery.
A native of Pittsburgh, PA., where he lived until the age of 15, Tim was always musically inclined. He learned to play flute at the age of 9 and taught himself to play the piano in high school. One of his brothers played the upright bass and was a jazz musician, while the other was a hard rock guitarist. So from early on, he was exposed to a variety of musical influences.
This evening Tim will perform a wide variety of self-written songs about life, love, encouragement and our LORD.
