Pursuing JC youth band will perform for the first time in Connecticut at the Danbury Whalers Professional Hockey Team Inaugural Faith and Family Night on Saturday, February 7th at the Danbury Ice Arena.

“There is a lot of talk about our generation and how we are a soiled generation. I don’t want people to leave just knowing our music or performance ability but rather to take away hope for our generation and to maybe rethink it." Kelsey DeRosa

Pursuing JC first started at Shelter Rock Church back in 2011 and began as a youth group band with just one song. However, their powerful performances gained them much deserved attention and they were soon invited to churches and festivals all over.

In 2014, they performed over 80 shows and now have over 120 songs in their portfolio. The band has a reputation of producing an amazing technical sound along with lead singer Michael Ottavio (16), whose deep and powerful voice resonates throughout any room. And at only 12 years of age, you won’t want to miss the fast paced drumming of Corinne De Rosa, whose pink drum sticks are always well in hand.

The nine member band also includes singer and violinist Kelsey De Rosa (16), pianist Gregory De Rosa (14), guitarists Matt Carter (14), Alex Ottavio (11), Emerald Geiger (15) and Ann Paulouse (16) as well as singer Jasmine Benjamin (16). In 2014 the band won the Got Talent Long Island, Audience Choice Award and was the house band for the Miss Long Island Teen Pageant.

The pre-game show will begin at 6:50pm and puck drop is at 7:35pm. The bands (New Method will also be playing) will be featured during intermissions as well.

This event is sponsored by Jericho Partnership, Inc., a collaboration of 10 Christ-centered ministries and 25 metro Danbury urban and suburban congregations; three foundations; and thousands of volunteers.
All church groups will receive discounted tickets of just $13 for adults and $9 for kids 10 and under!
