Keynote's Summer Project Dress Rehearsals

Keynote's Summer Project Dress Rehearsals - June 11-13

Keynote's summer project bands are getting ready for their debuts. Each band has been preparing for weeks to be ready to go out on their two week tours. Each band will have a dress rehearsal in front of an audience so they can tweak any last minute things that need to be chagned and to encourage them in the process they have been going through.

We have a total of five bands this year. The dress rehearsals will be Monday June 11, Tuesday June 12, and Wednesday June 13. There will be two bands on the first two nights and one band on the last.

The concerts will be held on separate stages in Keynote's new Rehearsal Building located at:
18880 N East St, Westfield, IN 46074

Coffeehouse at Keynote - June 8

Coffeehouse at Keynote - June 8

Every summer, Keynote hosts college students to participate in our summer project. One of the things we do is every Friday evening we host the "Holy Grounds" coffeehouse. This is an opportunity to showcase one of our full-time Keynote groups as well as give the students an opportunity to show off their individual talents. Our second coffeehouse will be this Friday (June 8) at 7:00 PM.

If you are local to Indy and are interested in attending, please let us know and we will meet up with you. There will only be two bands performing this Friday. It will be Chasing Elvis an acoustic funk band and The Boyd Family Band a high-powered worship band. The location is Keynote's new rehearsal building located at 18880 N East St, Westfield, IN 46074

Prayer Requests:

  • Pray that in the midst of our support raising that we would keep our eyes on the Author and Perfecter of our faith (Heb 12:2).
  • Pray that the summer project bands would have killer tours (see above for what a killer tour is)

God is better than anything life can give us and is better than anything death can take away.
