    From his rural Texas roots, cutting his chops on his father’s Country-Western record collection, to the small Baptist church where he was first compelled by congregational singing, and now in his current position as the definitive worship leader for the worldwide church, Chris Tomlin has always been motivated to provide spiritual seekers a voice to talk with God through music. “Even as a kid, when I played at church, I loved the sound of people singing,” Chris says, remembering his first impressions of hearing his home congregation raise the roof in praise. “I had no clue I would become a worship leader. I just loved to play music that people could sing with, and I loved it when people would sing to God.”

    ALIVE AFTER FIVE


    Holiday Dance Party! with Devan Jones and the Uptown Stomp. East Tennessee native, Devan Jones, formed The Uptown Stomp in 2013. The 6-piece unit, with him on guitar and vocals, played a very swingin’ mix of vintage jazz and 1950s Chicago blues and grew rapidly in popularity right up until Devan left town in 2015 to seek his fortune in Austin, where he has assembled an Austin edition of The Stomp with similar instrumentation. We’re happy to have him back and reunited with the Knoxville edition: Hunter Deacon on drums, Clint Mullican on upright bass, Chuck Mullican on tenor/baritone sax, Joe Jordon on trumpet, and Matt Coker on piano and Hammond B-3 organ.
