Concert in the Park

The Big House Band, the worship team and praise band of Fargo Faith United Methodist Church, will present a family-friendly concert in front of the Island Park Gazebo on Wednesday, August 18th. The show, which begins at 7:00 p.m. that evening, will feature a wide variety of popular contemporary and traditional Christian music. The performance is free of admission and open to all ages. People who wish to attend are encouraged to bring either a blanket or lawn chairs to the concert. While attending the show, we invite you to enjoy complimentary root beer floats being served by the church!

The concert will also be live streamed on Faith UMC’s website located at www.fargofaithumc.org and on their Facebook page located at www.facebook.com/FargoFaithUnitedMethodistChurch.

This will mark the fourth summer in row that this concert has been presented.

The Big House Band is comprised of seven talented musicians who are all members of Fargo Faith United Methodist Church. Each musician brings their own unique talents and musical experiences to the band. Vocalist Samantha Fluegel has dabbled in various music projects and musicals. Vocalist Kate Naujokas and drummer Aaron Bedford were both performing musicians for well over a decade in the 188th Army Band. Guitarist Joe Rudd has been a member of the Front Fenders for over two decades. Bassist Jay Hoherz has performed with past bands Starting Lineup and Kid Hollywood and is presently a member of the Woofers. Acoustic guitarist Sarah Baker has performed with various worship bands through the years. And band leader Christopher, who plays keyboard and sings in the Big House Band, currently performs with the FM Kicks Band, Guys and Dahls, and Jazz Avalanche.

It is with this wealth of musical experience, in addition to their friendship through music and through their faith, that the Big House Band brings a heartfelt performance to their listeners, whether in the church during worship or outside of the church walls at concerts such as this. The band excels in their instrumental cohesiveness and the vocalists bring forward beautiful three and sometimes four part harmony. It is these aspects all together that make a performance by the Big House Band truly special and meaningful.
