What's the music like?
You just gotta hear it.
We strive for diversity, with our core songs being rock and blues-based. The band usually includes electric guitar, drums, bass, keys and several smashing vocalists. We write our own music, re-write popular tunes, revamp old hymns, and borrow from the segment of contemporary Christian music that we can stomach. We currently have 3 bands.
The newest Spirit Garage Band, Beautiful Grey mixes rich vocal harmony with driving drums and handy guitar work, proving that a 'wall of rock' can also be sacred music.

A large part of the musical mission that Spirit Garage's three bands embrace is not only bringing God's message and inspiration to Spirit Garage's Sunday gatherings, but to share that message with the community. Each of the bands brings their eclectic talents to various gigs around town throughout the year: worship services at various churches throughout the Twin Cities, church sponsored youth events, summer concert series at the Lake Harriet Band Shell, and yearly performances at the Edina Art Fair. All three Spirit Garage Bands are available to play your next special event or worship service.
