Imagine The Monkees meet modern praise and worship music. Add a dash of realism and drama, and you've got Praise Band. The funny, yet touching story of one band's efforts in a small town church. Through their growing music ministry, the band not only reaches out to their community, but also grows in their own individual walk with God. Matt Young, the new worship leader, is hired by Pastor James Monroe to serve Crossroad Community Church. However, these young church leaders meet with much opposition from members of their congregation who still cling to traditional roots. Led by church treasurer Wayne Wilson, the congregation resist the idea of change and this new style of worship. Can Matt, along with band mates Mark Lewis, Luke Daniels and John Collins change the minds of this dwindling flock before it is too late? Praise Band - on Wednesday night they're an average band, but on Sunday morning they're praising God! Written by Elevating Entertainment

With the exception of country singing legend George Hamilton IV I doubt that you've heard of anyone from this film. That's probably to their credit because this film boasts some of the worst acting and directing ever done even for a Christian film.

The plot is simply that a new pastor is putting together a Christian rock group for Sunday services to appeal to the young and oddly enough Hamilton who is the big CEO with the church board is against it. Do I have to say how it comes out.

To cover up the bad acting a lot of Christian rock is heard as members are added to the band from a variety of sources even literally off the street. If your taste runs to that then Praise Band is your film.

This one will stay exhibited in church basements and on CBN.
