‘Beyond Music: A Retrospective Interview with Resurrection Band ‘ Coming Soon


Cornerstone 2012, the last Cornerstone Festival, is right around the corner and Grrr Records is excited about what they have planned this year.

It is Resurrection Band‘s 40-year anniversary and we have a celebration planned! Come join us at the Chelsea Cafe/Gallery tent on Wednesday, July 4 at 4:15 PM. Several members of Rez will be there as we enjoy cake and stories of Rez. We would like to encourage you to bring a short story or memory of your own that you can share at the party about the impact Rez has had on your life . We will also be unveiling the new Resurrection Band DVD Beyond Music: A Retrospective Interview with Resurrection Band. 

This DVD is an hour-long interview that was shot in 2009 with the most current members of Rez. They all tell different stories about their days with Rez and some of the amazing things God did with and through them. The interview is interspersed with some highlights of the XX Years Live concert as well as photos from throughout their career. Beyond Music will be available at the Grrr Records Booth in the Main Exhibition Hall and at The Resurrection Band 40th Anniversary Party for $8. It will be available on our website on July 10, 2012.

Also at the festival, we will introduce a special pre-release EP of Leper‘s new album Beautiful Gray Day (release date: August 10, 2012) which will feature 5 brand new Leper songs from the full album. This EP will be available only at Cornerstone Festival. Also look for another Cornerstone free bonus track fromAracely. Stop by our booth or come see our shows to pick up these new Grrr items.

About Grrr Records:

The Grrr Records is a collective of Christian artists and musicians who work together to make quality music that encourages and challenges people to a deeper life with God. Grrr Records started as a record label formed in the late ’80s by members of Resurrection Band (AKA Rez Band) and their producer Tom Cameron. They were all a part of Jesus People USA, an intentional Christian community that is based in Chicago, IL who feel called by God to serve the poor through the homeless shelters and other community ministries of Cornerstone Community Outreach, evangelize through music and culture at Cornerstone Festival as well as through Grrr, and disciple young Christians with a discipleship training school called Project 12. Their vision to build a record label that encouraged and supported musicians who focused on ministry blossomed in the ’90s providing a vehicle for several young artists (Crashdog, Cauzin’ Effect, Grace and Glory, and Sheesh) from Jesus People USA and Glenn Kaiser‘s (frontman for Resurrection Band) blues and solo career.

Over the years, many artists (like Seeds, Ballydowse, and The Remnants) have come and gone from Grrr Records and some artists (Josh Garrels, Trace Bundy, and Tommy Ogle) have partnered with us on a consignment basis. Most recently, the Grrr Records has helped to produced albums for Glenn Clark and the Family, Maron, Leper, Photoside Cafe, and The Crossing. The Grrr Records is continuing it’s mission to support musicians who are trying to encourage and challenge people with God’s truth, redemption, hope and love.
