JJ Weeks Band

Sunday September 1, 2019
Evening Concert 5pm


The four members of the JJ Weeks Band are certain they’ll spend the rest of their days making God known through their music. On their seventh full-length project, the JJ Weeks Band musically commits to telling the world about Jesus for as long as they can breathe.

Comprised of lead singer/songwriter JJ Weeks, bassist David Hart, drummer Jon Poole and guitarist Cody Preston, the Macon, Georgia based band are far from a new act. The group originated when Weeks, then a worship leader at his hometown church, needed a band for a local worship night. Hitting the road, the group began amassing a loyal fan-base throughout the southeast. To date they have opened for everyone from MercyMe and Casting Crowns to Unspoken. Their music has also been featured on the official soundtracks for the high-profile films God’s Not Dead and Four Blood Moons. With the debut of their first national release in 2013, the group earned a Top 10 single with Let Them See You, a song that remained on Billboard’s National Christian Audience Chart for 29 weeks.

For Weeks and his band-mates, the stories they hear from fans are the crowning achievement of their vocation. “Making a difference in people’s lives - that’s really why we do this, we want to be a vessel,” said Weeks. Weeks added, “Our central message is ‘Come to Jesus,’ because He loves us more than we can ever understand.” It’s this core idea that floods As Long As We Can Breathe, a brand new collection of songs that remind listeners of God’s peace and presence through a thoughtful mix of lush balladry and groove-inducing hooks. Throughout ten fresh tracks, the JJ Weeks Band reiterates their complete commitment to Christ. For the JJ Weeks Band, the songs on As Long As We Breathe have set fresh wind to their sails, refreshing the four men in ways they didn’t even know they needed to be refueled. “After 12 years of being a band, we feel like it’s a brand new rebirthing of the JJ Weeks Band, and we couldn’t be more excited,” Weeks shared. “It’s the best album we’ve ever [crafted], and we’re just thankful that God let us be a part of it.”
