“Each spring we work to bring in a concert to our campus featuring some of Christian music’s best artists,” says Bobby Pratt, assistant dean of students. “We have never hosted Building 429 or Hawk Nelson so this was a good opportunity to bring these two bands to campus. Family Force Five has performed twice before on campus, but it has been a few years since they have been back and they put on one of the best live shows around.”
About Building 429
Founded in 1999, Building 429’s name is based on Ephesians 4:29 and building up one another. The band members originated from North Carolina and Texas. Building 429 has toured 15 times since 2006, including tours with TobyMac, Thousand Foot Crutch, Newsboys, Skillet, and many other Christian artists.
Their 2013 album, “We Won’t Be Shaken,” is Building 429’s sixth full-length studio album and the first to reach number one on the Billboard Christian albums chart. “We Won’t Be Shaken” is nominated for the Grammy’s Album of the Year.
