The band wrote and recorded 10 Talents EP, released in spring 2017 and focusing on a mixture of indie, pop, honesty, hope and love.

Also performing Sunday evening is The Step Brothers. It all started with a talent show at Pettisville High School. Band mates Birch Baer and Zach Morrison decided they wanted to find a group of musicians to perform for the Pettisville Idol in 2016 and formed the band. Typical venues have been local churches and the Fifth Quarter at the Back Bay which is hosted after basketball games. The band’s first original song is called “Memories.”

The Sound will perform Monday, Sept. 3, at 5:00 p.m. The Sound is a music ministry, with Rob Mills celebrating his 27th year of sharing the gospel in song, and now has his family involved in the ministry. The Sound has shared the platform with artists like The Booth Brothers, Ernie Haase and Signature Sound, Jeff and Sherry and Easter, among others.
