Local promoter John Wilson Jr., of Highway Promotions, is known for booking some of the biggest names in country music. Having worked with venues and put on concerts all over the country, he has made a name for himself in Nashville, TN, as one of the most trusted entertainment buyers in the Midwest. Recently, Highway Promotions partnered with Life After Meth Ministry out of Springfield to work together on booking Christian concerts. Within weeks of this newest venture between the two, they already have locked in the first big Christian concert, and what better place to bring it than Stockton. Well-known Christian rock group, Seventh Day Slumber, will perform at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 12, at Church on the Hill.
Seventh Day Slumber frontman Joseph Rojas’s path is from the depths of a cocaine-fueled suicide attempt, through miraculous salvation in the back of an ambulance, to the top of the Christian music charts. Seventh Day Slumber has long been heralded as a band refusing to sugar-coat the struggles of real life. As the band has matured over the last 15 years, they’ve faced newfound challenges head on, and today their perspective and relevancy are as strong as ever, and their anthems of praise are even more profound.
A limited amount of tickets for this concert are on sale now and can be purchased at Church on the Hill, 402 Morgan Drive, or online at Stubwire.com. Tickets are $15 in advance and, if there are any left, $20 the day of the show.
