The JJ Weeks Band will be featured at 5 p.m. Sunday evening. Comprised of lead singer/songwriter JJ Weeks, bassist David Hart, drummer Jon Poole and guitarist Cody Preston, the Macon, Georgia, based band are far from a new act.
The group originated when Weeks, then a worship leader at his hometown church, needed a band for a local worship night. Hitting the road, the group began amassing a loyal fan-base throughout the southeast. To date they have opened for everyone from MercyMe and Casting Crowns to Unspoken.
Their music has also been featured on the official soundtracks for the high-profile films “God’s Not Dead” and “Four Blood Moons.” With the debut of their first national release in 2013, the group earned a Top 10 single with “Let Them See You,” a song that remained on Billboard’s National Christian Audience Chart for 29 weeks.
Heart to Heart will perform on Monday, Sept. 2 at 5 p.m. Heart to Heart is a full-time Grammy and Dove Award Nominated duo.
Heart to Heart, known as “The Heat & Soul of Branson” is excited about their music and their journey these days. A full-time Grammy and Dove Award nominated duo, Jerry and Sharon Mays are based in Branson, Missouri.
