Christian Rock band Building 429 heads to The Palace Theatre Nov. 2

In a mere week, Building 429 will take the stage at The Palace Theatre to perform live music to its fans. Joining them on Wednesday, November 2, will be American Idol contestant Colton Dixon and special guest Finding Favor (tickets here).

Through their songs and their high energy live shows, Grammy-nominated Building 429 is a band that has been touted throughout their 15-year career as "authentic and amazing - uplifting and unforgettable," along with being "truly focused on bringing glory to God."

In 2005, Building 429 was nominated to three Dove Awards at the 36th GMA Dove Awards: New Artist of the Year, Song of the Year ("Glory Defined"), and Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year for the same song. It ended up winning New Artist of the Year.

The Christian Rock band is currently on the road for The Earth Shaker Tour, named after one of the songs of its ninth studio album Unashamed. The album debuted at #2 on Billboard's Contemporary Christian Album Chart, #28 on Billboard Top Album Chart and #46 in the Billboard Top 200 Unit Chart.

Band members Jason Roy (lead vocals), Michael Anderson (drums), Jesse Garcia (guitar) and Aaron Branch (bass guitar) will perform singles from the album such as “Impossible” and “Unashamed” along with fan favorites from previous albums. 

Concert goers will also enjoy live music from Colton Dixon, whose album A Messenger & Anchor won Rock Contemporary Album of the Year at the 44th and 46th Annual GMA Dove Awards. It also debuted at #1 on Billboard Christian Album Chart and #15 on Billboard Top 200 Album Chart.

11 Reasons to See Olivia Lane Perform at The Palace

In a mere two weeks, Olivia Lane will perform live music at The Palace Theatre. The country singer has already made her inaugural visit to The Palace last year, which makes her return all the more exciting. Here are a few reasons to come to see country’s sweetheart perform on Friday, October 21. (Tickets here.)

1. She’s a natural on stage thanks to her theatre background. She was Éponine in Les Misérables, Miss Adelaide in Guys & Dolls, Jan in Grease, Hedy in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Princess Winnifred in Once Upon a Mattress.
2. Olivia knows what it takes to make a good country song. Similar to theatre, “It [country music] is a little play that takes you on a journey. That’s what a good country song should do.”

      3. Magazines predict she’s going to make it big. Olivia made Rolling Stone Country’s list of “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” and was named Entertainment Weekly‘s “Breaking Big” artist.
      4. She’s a baseball fan. In May she headlined the Chicago White Sox’s pregame show, “Rock the Sox,” at U.S. Cellular Field. And in August she took the field to deliver the National Anthem at the San Diego Padres game. Then in September, she sang “God Bless America” at New York Mets Citi Field during the seventh inning stretch.
      5. She makes her own sunshine. Not only by titling her single “Make My Own Sunshine,” but also spreading positivity and joy in what she calls “The Sunshine Movement.”

6. She’ll meet and greet her fans. She says her favorite part of being a performer is meeting people!
7. Olivia goes rogue. She’ll sing a single off her album and then turn around and cover a Top 40 song (and crush it).
8. Her band is insanely talented. They have no problem holding down the fort while Olivia rests her vocal cords between sets.
9. She embraces the quarter-life crisis by writing a song about it. “Sitting in my sweatpants eating cheap Chinese. Watching Netflix on my hand-me-down couch.”

10. She’s a foodie at heart. The girl has a sweet tooth for Shipley DoNuts and GooGoo Clusters.
11. She’s now stranger to country superstars. She has opened for Wynonna Judd, Kip Moore, and Randy Houser.

Olivia Lane will perform at The Palace Theatre Stamford on Friday, October 21, at 9 p.m. To purchase tickets, click here.
