School may soon be back in session but the “Last Blast of Summer” isn’t until September 3.
Frontline Ministries Youthfest is scheduled for Sunday, September 3 at DelGrosso’s Amusement Park in Tipton.
“What we’re trying to emphasize is the whole day,” said George Palmer, of FrontLine Ministries, in a previous article.
The day begins with a worship service at 11 a.m. with Bruce McCracken and Willis, which is comprised of members of worship teams at Lord of Life Church in Indiana, Pennsylvania.
For individuals who enjoy a good laugh, The 321 Improv Comedy team will also perform throughout the day.
Park patrons will be able to join the hilarious trio at 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. as they present a unique interactive comedy experience for all. During each performance, the trio instantly turns audience suggestions into comedic scenes, no two shows are the same.
321 Improv Comedy is comprised of Carl Crispin, who helped start and traveled with CPR Improv Comedy from 1992 to 2004; J.J. Peterson, a former youth pastor and comedy sports performer and Chris Voth, who for the last nine years has done every job imaginable from bus driver to waiting tables to feed his passion of stand up comedy.
In 2004, Carl, J.J. and Chris decided to combine over 25 years of comedy experience into one group, 321 Improv Comedy. The demand was immediately high to book the new venture. In their first year together, they performed in 20 states and two Canadian Provinces in front of over 25,000 people.
Finally, everyone will be able to enjoy two free shows with Big Daddy Weave, the featured artist of the day.
The five guys from Big Daddy Weave have formed a family of their own, extending past the blood brotherhood of Mike Weaver, lead vocalist and bassist Jay Weaver, who are the basis for the band’s name. With Jeff Jones on drums, Joe Shirk on sax and keyboards and Jeremy Redmon on guitar, Big Daddy Weave has found nearly seven years of touring and recording that have bonded them in a way that is just as close as brothers can be.
A 2002 Gospel Music Association Dove Award nomination for New Artist of the Year started their career off with a bang, with hit singles like the upbeat “In Christ” and the worshipful “Audience of One”, the band’s first number one song.
The latest song to hit the airwaves is featured on both What I Was Made For and the compilation Absolute Modern Worship. “You’re Worthy of My Praise” is a classic worship song the band has performed for years and has become another No. 1 hit.
Everyone is invited to visit the park and make a day of the event.
“Everybody we have on the schedule is great at what they do. It’s really a great day and DelGrosso’s is a great place,” said Palmer.
All concerts and parking are free so take advantage and don’t miss the Last Blast of Summer.
