Bassist Mark Childers
Mark Childers - BassistMark Childers plays the bass for "Street Songs".

Mike and Mark Childers have performed on stage with many renowned artists such as Carrie Underwood, Nichole Nordeman, Little Big Town, ZOEGirl and many more.

I was watching "The Midnight Special with Wolfman Jack" on TV one Friday night when I was 8 years old. My brother showed me who the bass player was for this certain band that was playing. The band happened to be called "The Band" and from there on I wanted to play bass. I naturally heard bass quicker than any other instrument even though the guitarist were soloing and drummers were being flashy. The bass fit me perfect. - Mark Childers

As a member of ZOEgirl, Alisa was able to carve a comfortable niche for herself as a respected songwriter.

Other Favorite Artists

Tim Moon
Tim Moon - Hippie at Large
If I could ever get Tim out of a tie-dyed shirt, I would get him this one I seen one time that had a picture of a whale on it with the caption, "Gentle Giant". Tim Moon truly is a gentle spirited man with a big heart for the lost, hurting people of our world. One of the things that thrills me about writing this little review is that Tim would never say these things about himself. Many times out on the streets I have seen people come up and want to handle his guitar (semi expensive). Maybe they know what they are doing and maybe not, but Tim lets them play it a little and encourages them where they are at. The "what's mine is yours" attitude that Tim has is considered by most, well, just plain crazy. One time his van was unlocked during an outreach and he went to get something from it and found a guy sleeping it off inside his van. Tim just quietly got what he needed and left the guy there. Tim's response was, "he may not have a great place to sleep on the street, so it may be the most comfortable place he has had in awhile". I was a hungry and you feed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was sick and you visited me, I was a stranger and you took me in. Uhm, sounds like living faith.

Barry McGuireBarry McGuire

"The Eastern world, it is it explodin'..." Tell me who has not heard those lyrics that start Barry's signature song, "Eve of Destruction". Barry has done a lot more in music and life than that song. Although like an actor that is typecast in a certain role, Barry still will play that for his audience. A couple of my favorites, "Calling Me" and "The Communion Song" are classics that Barry did after becoming a Christian.

For nearly 5 decades Barry has shared his unique style of folk and gospel music blended with insightful and heartwarming stories. This site is dedicated to reflecting the past, connecting you with the present and anticipating the future of one man's journey. You can find out more about Barry's life and music by going to his website: www.barrymcguire.com
