Redemption Music Open Auditions

Open auditions for Redemption Music (Jasper Campus-focused) are set for Monday, May 8 at 6:30 p.m.

We are always looking for Jesus-loving, committed musicians and singers to form Redemption’s next band or be added to the lineup of a current band. If you have a desire to spread the fame of Jesus to, and with the people of Redemption, through music, the information in this packet is for you. DOWNLOAD THE PACKET HERE.

Before auditioning (and included in the above-linked packet), you will learn about what worship is theologically, the purpose of bands at Redemption, and the time and level of commitment it requires to serve in this way. You will also have a chance to learn about specific needs and connect with other interested people to form a band.

If you’ve ever wanted to glorify Jesus through music, we strongly encourage you to understand what it takes and meet the leaders that can help you get involved.

Your demo may be a cappella or include instrumental accompaniment. Please submit your recording no later than Monday, May 1 to DANIEL ROSS. In your email please also include your name, phone number and title of your song. Your voice recording will be reviewed by the Redemption audition panel, after which you will receive an email letting you know whether to attend the live audition on Monday, May 8 or not.

Note: We value each player’s individual style and tastes and often shape bands based on a player’s God-given tendencies and talents. Do not let the sample audio stand in the way of your creativity or ability to learn the song. Bring your own “voice” to each song, but know the basic structure and arrangement of each song and play to compliment it.
