3 Union was performing at a local coffee house the other night, so I rounded up some teenage girls and we all went to hear them play.These poised Christian young men played a range of styles in their sets, including some praise music, original songs and an occasional classic hit (“What I Like About You”). Between songs, they offered a few thoughts about their walk with the Lord.Their parents and I were involved in the same church for many years, so it was wonderful to celebrate this new stage in their lives. The boys used to play with their parents in a family band; now the boys have spun off to form 3 Union, and the parents are their roadies.3 Union would be great to book for a youth-oriented worship or outreach event. Visit their MySpace page to sample their music, and contact them to discuss how they could serve your church’s ministries.In fact, I think they have a trip scheduled that will take them from Indiana to Florida, and I know they’d be thrilled to stop over to play a concert or two (or three, or ten) along the way.Here are a few words from the boys themselves:
Over the past five years, we have been performing and traveling with our family all over the the world. We began our adventures with a Christian school tour to Beirut, Lebanon where we did 30 concerts in 10 days.About a year ago we began our journey to set out on our own as brothers. We had the privilege of meeting with several Hollywood producers who gave us some very helpful advice and started working hard to be the best we could be.In the meantime, we began writing and recording our first CD with Christian artist John David Webster. It has been a long and tedious process, but we’re excited about the songs we’ve completed so far and can’t wait to see what God has in store.We do enjoy entertaining a crowd, but our main desire is to make a difference in peoples lives, especially the lives of our generation.
