Winter Jam is quickly approaching! I know, it's hard to fathom the word "winter" when it's still so warm out! But, we are really looking forward to this concert, especially as we heal as a city, we need this. Over the next couple weeks leading up to Winter Jam, we will be taking a look at a few of the performers. We wanted to start with Building 429 as one of their songs has had a special place in our hearts here in Vegas the last few weeks.
Building 429 is a Christian rock band. Their name was created from Ephesians 4:29 "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen". According to Jason Roy, Roy's wife Cortini had once belonged to a youth group that had a system called the "429 Challenge", based on Ephesians 4:29. Whenever someone in the group spoke negatively about one another, others were allowed to issue a verbal "four twenty-nine". This resulted in the offender having to say something nice to the person that was offended. That was in the year 2000. Since then they have received four Dove nominations, several Christian Billboard hits, a Grammy's nomination and toured with Toby Mac, Thousand Foot Krutch, Casting Crowns and more!
In June of 2013, Building 429 released We Won't Be Shaken, their eighth studio album, which debuted at number one on the Billboard Christian Albums chart. Building 429's hit "We Won't be Shaken" has quickly become the song that our city is hanging onto. Las Vegas is healing. Healing in a big way. Loving on it's city, it's people, the community - it's just amazing to see and be a part of. The community is becoming stronger every day. The love is seen throughout. "We Won't Be Shaken"!
Building 429's newest album "Unashamed" acknowledges that even in the midst of life's uncertainties, the bold proclamation of God's faithfulness is still possible - and fun! Unashamed's first single "Impossible" has already broken records when it received 95 radio ads out of the box, the most for any Provident artist to date! Save the date!
