Seven Day Jones:
A sound is growing through the vast plains of the American Midwest. A mixture of pop, dance and rock tunes are blowing across the northern prairies, preparing to establish Seven Day Jones as a serious player in the up-and-coming indie scene.
Seven Day Jones is an indie four piece based out of Bismarck, ND. Lead and anchored by Chris Lippert (vocals/guitars), Jen Testroet (bass, keys, BGV), Paul Christensen (drums), and Cody Testroet (lead guitar, BGV). Seven Day Jones’ new album Love Reaching is slated to be released Spring of 2013. This is the band’s second release in the last 3 years and Love Reaching promises to be a solid entry to the music scene.
Seven Day Jones was birthed out of a love for music and a passion to express the love of Jesus Christ. Love Reaching is the definition of the band’s goal. Seven Day Jones is a band, but more importantly they are a group of people with a purpose and a message for all to hear. “The message of Love Reaching, and our band overall is that God’s hand is extended toward mankind in love. He offers relationship, love, and acceptance.”
The Band brings a quality expression to any community no matter the size, with the use of music, quality equipment, media and a message that is relevant to this generation.
Chris Lippert, the bands frontman and founder feels that playing music and sharing his faith goes beyond a personal desire but more of a "life calling". Lippert's dynamic testimony from a life full of drugs and alcohol to a life changing encounter with Jesus Christ, is truly a testimony of the hand of God pulling a human life out of darkness and despair. Lippert and the rest of the group go forth with a heart to play music and demonstrate a lifestyle of "Sold out Christianity". "We are not in this just to play music, but to share the greatest news on earth: Jesus Christ saves, forgives, heals and delivers", shares Chris Lippert.
Seven Day Jones; just a group of regular Christians desiring to do something great for God.
Seven Day Jones have played with:
"There are many choices in bands and concerts in Christian music today. There are two key components that I appreciated about Seven Day Jones. First, they are real people. They are willing to let you get to know them as people and not as performers. Second, they desire to go where God opens the door, irregardless of the size of the town or attendance at the concert. For a rural pastor and ministerial assocation this was huge! They did two shows for our community; one for our high school and one for the public with a "get to know the band" event in between the concerts. Quality musicians, growing Christians, with a heart for more than being on a stage, I highly recommend them."
"Having Seven Day Jones play our student ministry event was a great experience.Seven Day Jones provided deep, relevant worship combined with practical ministry that made the night all the more meaningful. Musically they are very tight and passionate. Each member was very relatable and interacted with our students. I would highly recommend them for any future event that you may have."
"If you're looking for a group that loves Jesus, loves teens, and just loves all age groups, you have found the right ones! Seven Day Jones concert in the Ryder-Makoti community brought together teens from various communities and church backgrounds, Lutherans, Catholics, Presbyterians, Baptist, Full Gospel...Their Jesus praising music blesses those who hear them!"
"We have been privileged to work with Chris over the years and have always been blessed by his ministry and talent. As an exceptional musician and anointed minister Chris Lippert easily touches the hearts of people."
"As a youth minister I am always looking for people that can relate to young people and are talented enough to entertain them. Chris Lippert and Seven Day Jones fit both of these;. His testimony is dynamic and he and 7DJ are exceptional musicians. You would be blessed to have them, We sure have"!
