|Michael and Lisa Gungor|
CMS Productions and Christian Faith Center will present “Gungor” live in concert on March 15 at church’s Federal Way location at 7:30 p.m. The “Ghosts Upon the Earth Tour” will include special guests, “The Brilliance.” This is just one of at least 31 concerts held around the country.
Although difficult to describe, the Denver-based group has been recognized for excellence. “Gungor” has received three Grammy nominations including this year’s for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. “Ghost Upon the Earth” is the band’s third major release that sounds like a mixture of folk, pop and alternative styles. The album’s focus is on life – the joys and heartbreaks, the fall of man and the gift of life, the good and the bad.
Gungor is led by Michael Gungor and his wife, Lisa who write most of the group’s music as well. Together, the pair believes that their fans are smart enough to appreciate the group’s mixture of metaphor and allegory in their music. According to Michael, nothing on their latest album, or the concert for that matter, is haphazard. Everything is very purposeful and full of meaning. “I feel like we’re a bit more comfortable with whom we are at this point, and it’s been nice that there seems to be this little niche that we’ve found where people are excited to explore these things with us,” he says on the band’s website. “Music doesn’t have to fit the mold to move people’s hearts, and at the end of the day, that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to make honest music that opens people’s hearts.”
General admission to the concert is $15. VIP tickets are available for $25 which includes a question and answer session with Michael Gungor one hour before the doors open. However, it will not be a “meet and greet” event. Tickets can be purchased online.
