2017 Artist: Reverb Worship

“Initiating encounters with God through worship.”

Reverb Worship has played at Replenish Festival each year and brought us into a great worship time and experience.  We are thankful to have them back again for 2017 and leading our worship time through the weekend.  Come out to Replenish Festival on the weekend of July 7, 8 and 9th to join us and Reverb Worship! 

Why “Reverb” – The Vision

Reverberation: an echo; a reflection of sound; a resounding continuation

As the water of an oasis reflects the light, so God’s people reflect His glory (Proverbs 27:19).

Reverb Worship is committed to bringing dynamic worship to Oasis Church through song. Whether within the four walls of the building or in the community, this ministry is devoted to lifting the name of Jesus high and encouraging all believers to seek and desire new depths of worship (Psalm 42:7). Reverb Worship is dedicated to declaring the greatness of God, reverberating His love and mercy to all, so that His Kingdom may be expanded in the New River Valley and beyond in this generation.

Ministry Goal: To be an echo of what Christ is doing in the hearts and lives of its members, using their gifts, talents, and passions in service of the body at Oasis Church.

2017 Artist:  Exonerated

2017 Artist: Exonerated

Replenish Festival welcomes Exonerated back to the Replenish Festival stage on Saturday, July 8th, 2017!  The band joined us at our inaugural festival in  2015 and we are excited to have them back again.  🙂

In a time when so many acts sound the same, the band Exonerated, from the backwoods of Southwest Virginia, is changing the way that people view Christian Music. 

Coming on to the scene in 2009, they learned quickly that they needed to find a sound that was all their own but working on capturing a brand new sound would mean trying times, switching band members, and revisiting the band’s direction. Now that the band has a solid foundation,they have developed a sound that is turning heads everywhere! 

“We never want to loose focus on why we are in the Music Ministry, we have been called to share the gospel through our music and that is Exonerated’s main focus, always has been and it always will be,” states founding member, Frank Overfelt.

Listening to Exonerated you will hear influences from a variety of genres that have been skillfully meshed together to form a distinctive sound, such as heavy guitar rifts with strong southern over tones, solid drums, and clear smooth vocals all blended to give you an experience that will leave you wanting more.

2017 Artist:  After April

2017 Artist: After April

After April is a rock band based out of Greenville, NC.  The members – Josh Branch, Tyler Williams, Thorne Wiggs and Jonathan Evans – each bring influences from various styles of music as each band member’s personality is completely different.  They take their varying styles and mesh them together to create their music as heard on the debut EP, Canvaswhich was recorded and produced by Grammy nominated and Dove Award Winning producer, and friend, Rusty Varenkamp.

After April was started roughly 3 years ago, believe it or not, through a Craigslist posting!  They love creating music in their own ways to form a special piece of art and connecting with people through their beliefs and feelings. They are passionate about the creative process that leads to the thrill of a live performance and the connection with all the listeners when they receive feedback of how After April’s music positively affects their lives.

This band has big plans in their future, too. They want to break through to a professional level of musicianship and go where Christ leads them, reaching out to as many people as they can.

After April’s most significant event getting them to where they are today was their professional recording experience in Franklin, Tennessee where they journeyed there with rough ideas, and then left with polished products including five full songs on their first EP. Learning so much within a 5 day period has forever changed their lives.
