NEW ULM - MIKESCHAIR will be in concert in New Ulm at the Grandstand during the Brown County Fair Thursday, August 7, beginning at 7 p.m. Gates at the Grandstand will open at 6:15pm.
MIKESCHAIR got their start 10 years ago as a group of college buddies who started a band and have now become a well-known and respected musical group.
Based out of Nashville, MIKESCHAIR has been on tour with Big Daddy Weave, Michael West, Aaron Shust and others in addition to headlining their own tours. Believing in the importance of serving and giving back, the group has traveled to Peru, Guatemala and Honduras doing mission work for Buckner International and Food for the Hungry.
Christian music group “MIKESCHAIR” is performing a free show at the Brown County Fair’s Grandstand on Thursday, Aug. 7.
Recently married lead singer, Mike Grayson, honed his skills in Nashville and, along with a group of friends, has written songs and developed a unique sound that have garnered them at least 4 Dove nominations and earned Grayson a Gold album. He is known as one of the industry' s most compelling young vocalists and a songwriter of depth and insight.
The band is known for such songs as "Let The Waters Rise", "Can't Take Away", "Loved By You", and, "Someone Worth Dying For".
Says Grayson, "I've always related to songs like "Let the Water's Rise" or "Someone Worth Dying For". I've always wanted to be really honest in my writing and not shy away from the reality of the world and what it means to be here. but the prayer is that there's a glimmer of hope in all of these songs to help people lift their eyes up a little bit from where they are."
Grayson addresses his audience at each concert, speaking of the role that his faith has played in helping and healing from pain, hardships and addictions and offering hope for the future.
MIKESCHAIR is being sponsored by Grace Community Church in New Ulm. There is no charge for the concert which begins at 7 p.m. in the Grandstand of the Brown County Fairgrounds in New Ulm. All seats are on a "first come" basis.
