The Upper Room
"Tribute to Dennis Kessinger"
Crimson Rain is a Christian rock band with a unique blend of original, classic and modern rock. Danny is the vocalist and lead guitar player. He writes most of the band's music. His father Mike is the other vocalist and rhythm guitar player. You can tell the difference between the songs Mike wrote and Danny's - whose musical style is more modern than his Dad! The blending of their voices and styles makes for a unique sound. The band also takes classic rock songs and changes the lyrics to reflect their Christian beliefs. The Bible says to "make a joyful noise to the Lord."
Danny and Mike started the band. Mike taught Danny to play the guitar when he was little. Latter, they started playing out at cookouts and at church. They played as guests with the church's worship team at the Upper Room Coffeehouse. At other times they played out (under different band names) with friends who joined them on various instruments - drums, bass, keyboard, violin, and guitar. The band slowly evolved into a four-member crew. Bill, the former drummer (2006-2010), was added first, and then Ralph joined them on the bass in April 2007. Craig, who has played with Danny and Mike in the past, joined them as the drummer for Crimson Rain in 2011.
Crimson Rain's main goal is to bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ. Our hope is that the Lord would touch people through our music, either to come to know Jesus, or to bring them closer to Him in their walk with the Lord.
Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. (Isaiah 1:18)
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
(1 John 1:7)
