Outreach 24/7 / Press

“This new CD by the Washington, DC ensemble Outreach 24/7 is the very definition of “praise party,” or in the terminology of one of the album’s cuts, a “jubilee party.” Amidst pumping psych soul musicianship and a plethora of percussion instruments, the ensemble laterals vocal leads to one another like a rugby team headed downfield. The live vibe is magnified by the fact that it is an intimate gathering. Individual voices are heard audibly enjoying the music. The title track sets the tone. Outreach 24/7 bursts forth like a religious Fantastic Four, God’s Superheroes, seemingly busting down church doors, entering en masse and mandating its people to act like a church: “get off the pew” and “let your light shine” by helping those less fortunate. The high-spirited energy of this opening piece bleeds into successive praise songs such as “God is Power,” “You Better Recognize” and the hypnotic, Caribbean-styled “You Are My King.” ”

“Dear Media: As you know, a massive earthquake has struck Haiti leaving most of the island in ruin. Yet with so many people still unaccounted for, the death toll could easily reach in excess of 100,000 lost lives. Because of this, Outreach 24/7 and the Jericho City of Praise Ministries is sponsoring a Haitian Benefit Relief Concert on January 29, 2010 at 7pm. This benefit concert is for the victims and families who suffered loss in this Haitian tragedy. This benefit concert is to raise money which, in its entirety, will be donated to the Haitian Emergency Relief Fund, but it is also to come together as a community to show that not only do we sing about the love of Jesus Christ, but we represent the love of Jesus Christ to the world at large. ”

““Get Off the Pew” Outreach 24/7 Outreach Productions 2010 www.outreach247.org Outreach 24/7 sounds like a new group of superheroes. Based on their single, “Get Off the Pew,” they might as well be. On “Get Off the Pew,” the mixed vocal group from Washington, CD tells stories of troubled souls at a crossroads (e.g., a teenaged father, an alcoholic). They order their fellow saved to not just sit there, but “get off the pew” and help them help these troubled souls. Amen to that! The neo-soul anthem (the group calls their style “Gospel Groove”) reminds me of Arrested Development during its awesome 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in the Life Of… years.”

“Outreach Productions is proud to present "Get Off The Pew" live in concert project. This project consists of 12 slamming tracks. Enjoy the new sounds of music "Gospel Groove" a style born out of the streets of Washington DC.”
