We are also pleased to be able to offer you a very special deal for former thebandwithnoname front-man Chip Kendall to join you at your event.
If you would like to book an artist for an event you are putting on Ministry of Music can provide christian singers, bands, worship leaders, DJs and dance crews covering a wide range of musical genres. We can also provide experienced speakers and PA/Lighting systems to ensure your event is a success.
Simon Harper singer, songwriter & worship leader. Simon has had links with Ministry of Music right from its conception so it gives me great pleasure to welcome Simon. Simon's heart to lead people in worship has seen him lead worship at many churches and events across the UK. Simon is also part of the UK strategy team for Worship Central.
Seeker are a very experienced soul pop duo. Their music is a blend of soul, pop and jazz and they play a combination of their own songs, mainstream covers and covers of re-vamped worship songs in a more soulful style. An ideal act for a Sunday night café event. They are available as a duo or a full band. For full bios, pics, music/video samples go to www.ministryofmusic.co.uk
Sound & Lighting Ministry of Music is now working with quite a few Christian sound and lighting companies, based at different locations across the UK, and can offer very competitive rates. Some of the Artists we work with can also provide their own sound and lighting systems helping to further keep costs down.
