The goal of the program was to get kids performing together in a band and have them learn and perform three cover songs. By the end of program, the chemistry that formed among band members was too strong to let go.

The band continued to gain traction and popularity in Gulf and Bay counties as they played church services and area events.

Throughout the spring months, the band spent some quality time at RSR Recording Studio where they recorded its first original song, “Jesus Loves You and I Love You Too.” The single was released digitally in June through the popular music service iTunes.

In addition to countless shows at area churches, the group recently played the annual Scallop and Music Festival at George Core Park and are gearing up for the release of a two new original singles in the fall.

Thirty-Three’soriginal songs are penned by local songwriter Doug Roberts, who was brought in to aid the band.

He had written a few Christian-based songs that he taught to the group and was “pleasantly surprised” with how quick they picked up the structures and progressions.

The band is managed by the Joe’s father, David Bogaert, who takes care of the business and booking side of things.
