Nashville, TN - October 6, 2009 - It's been a while since we've heard from Curb Records band MIKESCHAIR. No, they aren't taking any time off - they've actually been quite the active rock band. With their second radio tune on its way up the charts, with playing on one of the most unique tours out this fall, and with helping donate shoes to well over 7,000 children, yes, MIKESCHAIR hasn't had time to sit.
According to the radio charts, the band's second radio single, "Let The Waters Rise," has grabbed the #1 spot on Christian AC's New & Active chart, with a #25 spot on the Christian (Overall) chart. The song, the follow up to MIKESCHAIR's debut top 5 single, "Can't Take Away," is also the highest debut this week on Billboard's Top 50 Christian (Overall) chart. "Let The Waters Rise" has also broken into the Top 50 songs on iTunes' Christian & Gospel chart.
MIKESCHAIR, a band well-known for their humanitarian efforts, specifically with mikestable, have partnered with The JOY-FM in support of Buckner International. Along with Carmen Brown, part of JOY FM's Morning Cruise team (www.thejoyfm.com), the greater Tampa/Sarasota-area radio station listeners were challenged to donate shoes for Buckner International's "Shoes for Orphaned Souls" program (www.buckner.org) at designated locations in the southwest and central areas of Florida. The shoes are then to be donated to orphaned children of the country of Peru, South America. This December, the band, along with Brown, are heading down to Peru to give these donated shoes directly to the children and place them on their feet. To date, they've already collected 7,409 shoes!
"When selecting a band to take with me for the Shoes for Peru trip this year, it was a no-brainer to extend the invitation to MIKESCHAIR," claims Carmen Brown of The JOY FM. "Their hearts are right in line with this outreach and The JOY FM. I'm looking forward serving alongside them as we deliver over 7,400 pairs of shoes!"
MIKESCHAIR's lead vocalist, Mike Grayson, adds "I can't even begin to explain how excited and blessed we are to be going to Peru with The JOY FM. I have prayed a long time for an opportunity like this for the band. Moments like this are why we do what we do. We are so humbled to be a part of what God is doing through Buckner International."
Partnering with organizations such as Buckner International and utilizing mikestable at many of their shows, it is the band's hope for people to be aware of what's going on in the world in terms of need, to give them empowerment, while also give options. Audiences are welcomed to visit mikestable that is dedicated to offering information for various causes such as Food for the Hungry, IJM, Love 146 and much more.
MIKESCHAIR is currently on "The Altered Minds Tour" with Lecrae and After Edmund, a unique tour displaying a variety of music from rock, rap and pop. The tour, which has already garnered two sell-out shows, was put together to represent the unity within the body of Christ.
On behalf of MIKESCHAIR, Sam Tinnesz, the lead guitarist for the band, says "We are so thankful to even say that we are associated with The Altered Minds Tour and the men of God that make up the artists and crew. Everyone involved has checked their egos at the door to truly serve God and unabashedly share the Gospel."
The tour is scheduled to run through the end of November. Tour dates are listed below, but for the most updated tour information, visit: www.MIKESCHAIR.com.
Just announced, the band has also been endorsed with Sennheiser. Established in 1945 in Wedemark, Germany, Sennheiser is the acknowledged world leader in microphone technology, RF-wireless and infrared sound transmission, headphone transducer technology, and in the development of active noise-cancellation.
