Although our idea of what’s all that and a bag of chips has shifted since the ’90s, young people still express their desire to be Jesus freaks through music.

 

#MBThrowback

Christian rock band

Although our idea of what’s all that and a bag of chips has shifted since the ’90s, young people still express the desire to be Jesus freaks through music.

Do you know the names of the band and/or the people in this photo (which we suspect is from the 1990s)? Help CMBS identify them by emailing identifying information to archives@mbchurches.ca.
UPDATE

Members of the band got in touch to fill in the gaps in our knowledge.

The name of the band is “Life Forever”, a Kansas City area based band from the 80’s and 90’s, Byron Funk wrote via email

Keyboard – Russ Friesen, bass guitar – Byron Funk, drums – Carson Richert, guitar – Steve Friesen. Several band members are still involved in Community Bible Church (MB) in Olathe, Kan.

This photo from the Centre for MB Studies (NP149-1-1555) is available to the public in collaboration with MAID: the Mennonite Archival Image Database. Research or purchase images from Mennonite churches and organizations at archives.mhsc.ca.

Hi Byron!
Through the wonders of social media, we’ve been told the missing identification of this band is Life Forever. Thanks for stopping by to say hi and to revisit your old self.
