BIBLE BELT BLUES' REVIVAL CONCERT
"Soften My Hardened Heart"
Bible Belt Blues’ music was created to facilitate healing, restoration, and renewal for those who are struggling with anger, confusion, and depression; and for those who lack an intimate relationship with God. It is our fervent prayer that the Holy Spirit of God will use our songs to prepare hearts for repentance, holiness, and a life fully surrendered to Him.
Our music falls into two categories: Songs that edify the Body of Christ through worship; and songs that prepare hearts for repentance and total surrender to Him. .
Who would write a lyric about stealing God’s glory and what kind of radio station would ever play a song like that? But God got the last word and to date, “The Glory Belongs to You, Lord” has received the most radio airplay of all of our songs. My husband, Harold, and I are Bible Belt Blues, a husband and wife music ministry team from Gulfport, Mississippi. When we started creating music together as a couple a year ago, we never really gave much thought as to whether or not our music would ever be played on the radio. In fact, we were creating lyrics and music that is counter-culture; songs about sin and salvation, full-fledged repentance songs, invitations prayer songs, and songs for church revivals. Our sound is fresh and unique (early Mississippi Bentonia blues with a bit of 70’s retro mixed in for good measure) and our lyrics are bold and biblically sound. Since January of 2019 we have created, mixed, mastered, and produced two albums, “I’m Not Ashamed to Be a Christian” and “My God, My God” in our own home recording studio. To date eleven of our songs have received radio airplay. On Sept. 21st 2019 we received the coveted Josie Music Award for Gospel/ Christian Duo at Dollywood Theater in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee after more than 23,000 nominations were submitted across all genres from around the globe. Thank You Jesus! Only God could have opened up those doors for us!
It is now time for us to be obedient to God’s calling to seek bookings for us to play our Bible Belt Blues music in the form of Church Revival Concerts (2-2 1/2 hours with 12 original songs). Our fervent prayer is that the Holy Spirit of God uses our Bible Belt Blues music as a catalyst for revival across America and around the globe. We invite you to partner with us with our music ministry. All for His Glory and for building Christ’s Kingdom! (www.BibleBeltBlues.org)
BIBLE BELT BLUES' REVIVAL CONCERT
"Soften My Hardened Heart"
For our services we will accept a Love Offering taken during or after the service. We are Christian Musicians with two CD’s released since January of 2019. We would appreciate a table set up in the lobby where we can sell our CDs after the service. Thank you kindly.
Imagine what it would have been like to be one of Jesus’ followers who were gathered together in one accord, after His ascension into Heaven, awaiting the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost! With lyrics and vocals portraying hearts that are humbled, prayerful, and fully repentant, Bible Belt Blues recreates a place of holy reverence for the Holy Spirit to feel welcome in their new song, “Holy Revival.” Close your eyes as you fully experience the violent rushing wind (at the end of the song) as the Holy Spirit is depicted in Acts 2:2.
ARE YOU READY?
Fasten your seat belts as Bible Belt Blues’ high energy, BB King blues style song, “Are You Ready?” transports you to a much higher level of expectation where supernatural miracles are within the realm of possibility. Take your faith to a much higher level as you dive in deep to experience its jolting lyrics and belting vocals. Prepare your heart and mind to witness a shaking that this world has never known..!!
THE GLORY BELONGS TO YOU, LORD
We serve a jealous God who does not want to share His glory with another. When we take credit for the things that belong to God, we steal His glory. In a world where too much focus is placed on self, “The Glory Belongs to You, Lord,” shifts the focus back on God, who is the provider of every good and perfect gift, including all of our talents. Harold even makes the harmonica weep in this song that is both remorseful and reverential.
I DIDN’T TAKE TIME TO PRAY
With bold, unforgettable lyrics enveloped in Bentonia blues style music mixed with a little 70’s retro, “I Didn’t Take Time To Pray” is both hauntingly beautiful and confrontational for those who struggle with making the time for daily prayer.
It is easy to trust God when everything is going well in life; It is often times difficult to trust God when our world comes crumbling down. With its compassionate lyrics, slow rhythmic blues, and weeping harmonica, “Trust God” by Bible Belt Blues will envelop you as you learn to trust God during very difficult life situations. A powerful song of healing and restoration.
GOD’S NOT THROUGH WITH YOU
What words of encouragement would you give to someone who is on the brink of suicide? Bible Belt Blues’ first song release, “God’s Not Through With You,” addresses this question with sympathetic yet powerful lyrics that could potentially be life-saving for someone who is seriously depressed. Share a Song! Save a Life!
SEEKER OF MY VERY SOUL
How do you witness to someone who is successful on the surface, but is living their life on their own terms without God? You shake them out of their complacency, like Bible Belt Blues has done with their song, “Seeker Of My Very Soul,” that starts with these surprisingly bold lyrics: “I’m master of my own domain, I’m going nowhere fast.” Coming face to face with the majesty and glory of God, the listener is at a pivotal place of possible surrender to the “Creator of the Universe.” Wrapped in rhythmic Bentonia style blues, “Seeker Of My Very Soul” continues along this same path with lyrics that are even bolder: “It’s time for me to step down from the throne of my own life and give Jesus His rightful place.”
FOOL, DID YOU NOT KNOW?
Unfortunately, many people live their lives focused on worldly gain without giving much thought to God and to their eternity. With its weeping harmonica and jolting lyrics based upon the Parable of the Rich Fool, “Fool, Did You Not Know?” by Bible Belt Blues is a wake-up call to anyone who lives their life without God. Today is the day of Salvation..!! Don’t’ delay..!!
TEACH ME TO NUMBER MY DAYS, LORD
Guaranteed to grab your attention with its jolting lyrics, foreboding music, and special vocal effects, “Teach Me To Number My Days, Lord” by Bible Belt Blues is the ultimate “wake-up call” song. Life has a way of sneaking up on those who live their lives focused on pleasure and the temporal things of this world. “Teach Me To Number My Days, Lord” challenges its listeners to live their lives daily fully surrendered to Christ with an eternity mindset.
I KNOW IT’S EASY
It’s easy to justify our sin, especially when no one is looking. As Christians we are called to be holy and to walk away from sin. Bible Belt Blues’ new song release, “I Know It’s Easy” is written in conversation style between two friends where one is sharing the details of his or her sin, while the other is standing firm that sin is still sin, regardless of whether or not anyone sees it. A real eye-opener of a song with belting lyrics wrapped in 70’s retro style blues.
SOFTEN MY HARDENED HEART
Before one can be receptive they must first have a softened heart to the things of God. Bible Belt Blues’ song “Soften My Hardened Heart,” which is an actual prayer, prepares the listener to receive their Salvation through a heart that is fully repentant and surrendered to Jesus Christ.
THE ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN
Bible Belt Blues’ powerful invitation song, “The Only Way to Heaven,” dives in deep to tackle the false belief system that we can somehow earn our way into Heaven by doing enough good works. With bold, yet compassionate lyrics, its weeping harmonica, and heart-wrenching vocals, the Truth about Salvation through Jesus Christ is laid bare for all who have ears to hear.
We would be honored to do a Revival Concert at your church.
Abundant Blessings to You,
Harold and Paula Vega Vondenstein
