Sidewalk Prophets to bring act to New Haven

The New Haven Canal Days Festival Committee together with the New Haven-Adams Township Parks and Recreation Department is pleased to announce that the Contemporary Christian Music group, Sidewalk Prophets, will be appearing in a free concert during Canal Days on Saturday, June 8th, 2013 at 8 pm in Schnelker Park. This will be the festival’s first ever Faith, Family & Friends Night, which aims to bring together all generations and all denominations to celebrate the community of New Haven, Indiana. “”These Simple Truths”, the Sidewalk Prophet’s first release with Word Records, led to a Dove Award for the group as Best New Artist in 2010 and a 2011 nomination for Group of the Year. From that project came the group’s first three hits on the Billboard Christian Singles Chart: “The Words I Would Say”, “You Can Have Me”, and “You Love Me Anyway”. The group’s current project features the Sidewalk Prophet’s current hit single and title track, “Live Like That.” In the ten years since the group’s formation, the Sidewalk Prophets have built a reputation as being one of the hardest working bands in the music industry. In the past, the group has toured with such prominent artists as Audio Adrenaline, Kutless, MercyMe and Francesca Battistelli, and will take to the Winter Jam stage in early 2013 alongside TobyMac and Matthew West before gracing the stage at Canal Days in June.

The group was co-founded at Indiana’s Anderson University by Terre Haute native and lead vocalist/songwriter Dave Frey and guitarist/song writer Ben McDonald. Other members of the Sidewalk Prophets include bassist Cal Joslin, drummer Justin Nace, and lead guitarist Shaun Tomczak.
