Gospel band coming to Wadena
Being part of a family is always an adventure. Being part of a family that tours the upper Midwest hauling instruments, sound equipment and six kids ranging from 7 to 20 - now that a "Great Adventure"! And that's precisely what the Garms Family of Braham, Minnesota call themselves: the Great Adventure Gospel Band.
Since 2008, David and Kris Garms and six of their eight children have performed at many different venues across Minnesota, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Iowa. Since their simple beginnings of singing hymns and Southern Gospel classics around the piano in the living room to the release of their 2011 debut CD, "Thank You, Lord," the family has been endearing themselves to people across the Midwest as they travel together in their full-time ministry.
You will enjoy Great Adventure Gospel Band's vast variety and uplifting style of gospel music, including gospel bluegrass, Southern Gospel and traditional hymns. Each son is an adventure as this live family band plays a wide variety of instruments: guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, upright bass, harmonica, piano and more. Combining their exciting musical arrangements and beautiful harmonies, the energetic family is eager to share their homegrown talents. They love to work as a team, and their joy as a family overflows as they sing and play together.
The Rev. Allen Refsland invites the community to Wadena Assembly of God, 419 1st St. NW, where they will host the Great Adventure Gospel Band for a concert this Sunday at 10 a.m. The smiles, gospel music, and the message of Jesus Christ will brighten your day, give hope for tomorrow and leave you inspired.
