Powell, Third Day Deliver Knockout Rock Show

November 21, 2011 / by / 0 Comment

Is there a better front man in Christian rock music than Mac Powell of Third Day? First, there’s the look. With his shoulder-length brown hair, full beard, flannel shirt, jeans and boots, this might be what Jesus would look like if He were in a band. Third Day and Powell have been making music for going on 20 years now, but it’s hard to imagine band and lead singer sounding any better than they did on Sunday night at GCU Arena. A 95-minute show packed with 17 songs and two encores showed that there’s still plenty left in the tank for the four-time Grammy Award winners from Atlanta.

Switchfoot Worth the Wait, Brings Arena to Life

October 24, 2011 / by / 0 Comment

Last Friday night’s Switchfoot show took the GCU Arena concert experience to a whole new level, speaking volumes of the facility’s capabilities. It was well worth the wait when the lights finally dimmed, strobes sporadically flashed like a kaleidoscope and fans erupted with screams as Foreman and the band opened with “Mess of Me.”

Antelope Audio: Ragamuffin Soul by Carlos Whittaker

April 26, 2010 / by / 3 Comments

Antelope Audio is a chance for GCU students to review new releases in Christian rock and pop. Written by ‘Lopes for ‘Lopes. Review by Brooke Combest – Senior, Communications Carlos Whittaker was the worship pastor and creative art director at Sandals Church in Riverside, Calif., for 10 years before pursuing a recording career. His life mission is to “ignite a movement of authenticity among all generations of Christians that morphs the face of the evangelical church into a place of being real with yourself, others and God.” His music debut appeared in January with a self-titled EP. His full album, Ragamuffin Soul, will be released April 27. This alternative album is inspirational and definitely something to sing along to in the car. My favorite song is the first track, “Rain It Down.” It is a song that I could see people praising God within church. It has a great melody and is the most upbeat of all the songs. Ragamuffin Soul includes 12 songs that are mostly worship and praise songs. Whittaker’s music can bring words of encouragement on a bad day and speak truth about God’s love for us. You can find out more about Carlos and his music at […]

Antelope Audio: Eternity Invades by Vicky Beeching

April 21, 2010 / by / 3 Comments

Antelope Audio lets GCU students tune in with reviews of new releases in Christian rock and pop. Written by ‘Lopes for ‘Lopes. Review by Lisa Kershner, Nursing student Vicky Beeching was born and raised in the U.K. and has been singing worship music since she was twelve. She felt that God called her to come to the United States to share her music and spread God’s word. She just released a new album April 6, 2010 called Eternity Invades. It startes out with a song with a good beat and a catchy tune. Then the songs begin to get more intimate and much more “soft” with mostly piano being played.  My favorite song was Salvation Day. I liked it because it did a good job capturing how Jesus has saved all who believe with simple lyrics and a really good beat. Eternity Invades includes 13 Tracks; one being a bonus track titled The Wonder Of The Cross. The album as a whole delivers the message of Christ well with Beeching’s soft voice and perfectly coordinated instrumentals.  You can find out more about Vicky Beeching and her music at her website www.vickybeeching.com/blog/ or follow her on twitter at twitter.com/vickybeeching.
