September 07, 2007  –  Bill Brooks From Florida – Bill Brooks is a talented Guitarist and singer. His music ranges over many styles, including Christian country, country/mountain gospel, and traditional country and folk. Bill's testimony is powerful, having been saved from "walking to dark road of addiction" to being saved to life in Jesus Christ. Bill Brooks says that if one person can be touched his testimony and music, that is worth more that any awards or gold records. This sounds like another great evening with another wonderful new friend. If you like homey, country style music, come out and bring your friends.

September 28, 2007 (date may be incorrect) –  Rick Stevenson From Johnson Creek, WI – Rick will be at the Cup for the first time tonight. Here's an exerpt from Rick's bio:
Born on 10-29-67 in Libertyville, IL, Rick was raised in Grayslake, IL until the age of 7 when he was adopted and moved to Rockford, IL. It was in this newly adopted home that Rick's musical talent was fostered. He began piano lessons at the age of 8 and continued them until the age of 17. Beginning with the seventh grade, Rick took up the trombone and played with vigor all the way through high school. His vocal training began late in high school with private lessons and as a part of the high school choir ensemble. He participated in many high school musicals and was lead singer for a local band "Glacier". Rick was also part of the Madrigals singing group at Rock Valley College and while attending classes there he also performed in semi-professional musical review troops. Rick is dedicated to growing as a musician and has recently begun taking guitar lessons to expand his musical abilities.

After coming to Christ in 1994, Rick developed into a devoted worshiper often leading services and even holding roles as music director for churches in both Green Bay and West Allis, WI. Through these roles he directed choirs and holiday musicals that have touched congregations with the presence of God. Bringing others into a deeper relationship with God is Rick's passion. As such, his heart beats with the desire to minister through music, as is evident in his songwriting.
Songwriting for Rick began at the age of 16 and he has been working on his craft with dedication and determination ever since.
Rick has been recognized with awards from various song writing contests; most recently for his songs "Sanctuary Of My Heart" and "You Are Great".
In 2007 Rick's debut CD "Sanctuary Of My Heart" was released on the independent label N-Siteful Music. It contains 14 worshipful adult contemporary songs all written and performed by Rick.
Rick currently resides in Johnson Creek, WI with his wife and children. He is actively touring and promoting this inspiring CD.
Come out and welcome him and share this night of worship music with us.
