Bayside Chapel Presents Crossroads Café April 20

Apr 11, 2018

Dana Isles and Facedown bring their gospel-themed rock and soul music to Bayside Chapel in Barnegat Township at the next Crossroads to Recovery coffeehouse ministry, on Friday, April 20, at 7 p.m. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted for The Family Freedom Walk at America’s Keswick in Whiting, which helps men and women with recovery from addiction.

The South Jersey-based band (not to be confused with the local classic rock band also known as Facedown) consists of Dana Isles, lead singer/guitarist; Tammy Vaughn, drums; Jen Baker, bass guitar; Mike Parillo, lead guitar; Gary Bailer, lead guitar; and Lois Robinson, keyboards.

Vaughn, who serves as the group manager, said the band would perform songs that “hopefully will draw people to the Lord.”

“If they already know God, then we hope to help set them free from bondage,” she said.

Most of the songs are originals written by Isles.

“Our sound is a mix of rock and soul,” said Vaughn. “We’re not like hard rock or heavy metal.”

Vaughn said she, Isles and Baker began playing together when they were college students. Years later, they would be part of a church worship team and form a group known as Broken.

“At the café, we will also play worship music,” she said.

Crossroads to Recovery meets every Friday at 7:30 p.m. in Room 5. For information, call Bayside Chapel at 609-607-8323. —E.E.
