Fireproof, a contemporary Christian band, will draw an expansive crowd tonight to Benld City Park as part of the Coal Country Chamber of Commerce’s 11th annual summer concert series. The concert will play for 90 minutes beginning at 7 p.m.
The park opens at 6 p.m. with the concession stand serving hot dogs, “big smokies”, Italian beef, soda and water, and strawberry shortcake sundaes. Parking is free and patrons are asked to bring their own lawn chairs for seating.
Fireproof UMC was formed at an annual planning meeting of the United Methodist Church of Gillespie in 2012. A praise band ministry was one of the topics discussed, and on the hearts of musicians in the church. The band consists of long time area musicians: Gay Farrar, keyboards/vocals; Phil Claro, guitar/vocals; Jeff Nehls, guitar/vocals; Jim Allen, bass/sound and Jim Savant-drums/vocals. Vocalists include Allison Beckett, Edie Friese and Deanna Claro.
The band’s mission is to make a joyful noise for God.
