Past Events

Josh Wilson 

Saturday, November 13th,  doors open at 5:30 pm for VIP, 6 pm general admission, and concert at 7 pm

 

Josh has 7 top 10 hits in Christian music, yet one wouldn’t think that a young man with a wonderful marriage, strong Christian convictions, and a career on the rise would face any obstacles. Well, not true.  2012 saw Josh facing a serious panic attack that led him to believe he was having a heart attack. Far from being a one-time event, Josh faced repeated attacks that nearly
led to the cancellation of performances. This emotional wake-up call makes up the basis for his album CARRY ME (released in 2013); Josh has often used real-life experiences to fuel his songs. Odd that the attacks happened in the same year that he was given the CHRISTIAN SONGWRITER/ARTIST OF THE YEAR from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers), but he has learned to take it all in stride.
His last 2 albums have been top 5 rated in Christian music and fresh off of top 10 hits, REVOLUTIONARY Josh’s next single UNDENIABLE is climbing the charts and promises to be another hit for him.

Jonny Diaz

Three years ago, Diaz wrote an album called Everything Is Changing because everything was, well, changing. It’s not something
he’s said to many people before, but at the time, Diaz thought it would be his last album.

He was touring around 100 days a year, starting a business with his wife, had just become a father…And beyond the busy schedule, the music industry had become more draining of life than giving. The focus was on making a product to sell rather than to fulfill a passion. Songwriting sessions were formulaic instead of inspiration-led. Diaz was feeling the industry more than
the music.

Then something happened that changed everything all over again: Jonny’s song “Breathe”– a last-minute toss as a radio single–
resonated quickly with listeners and became a hit. Suddenly it was time to reevaluate his music career all over again.

“Of course, God had to use a song about finding peace to be humble me to actually do so,” Diaz laughs. “I was burned out,
exhausted, but with “Breathe” He showed me ‘You can do this and stay grounded in the other important parts of your life. You
have a calling to do this, and there is a way you can use this gift and live that out while maintaining peace.’”

Blue Fire Horizon began as a concept in November of 2019. It was just two guys in a basement with the same calling – to share the Gospel through heavy metal music. The name is a metaphor for the Second Coming of Christ. “Blue” signifies faith. “Fire” represents being alive. And “Horizon” is symbolic of that point in the future when we will meet our Savior face to face. The EP ‘Down With Leviathan’ centers around that topic; drawing a lot of its inspiration from the book of Revelation. Our goal is to speak the raw, unfiltered truth of Scripture through our music. Zachariah Turnage (vocals) and Keagan Lee (composer, guitars) are the founding members. Rock Arellano (drums) and Hunter Chapin (also guitars) joined shortly after the release of the single ‘War Is Everything’ to complete the lineup.

“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.
