Rexband – Jesus Youth Songs

Over 25 professionals active in various fields with a distinctive talent in music and theatre dare to call themselves the Rexband – composing Jesus Youth Songs – in honour of the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. Experiencing the joy of liberating Christian music themselves, the band came together with a commitment to take this gift of quality Contemporary Christian Music and its message to the new generation. Evolving out of a life-changing encounter with Jesus through the Jesus Youth movement, the band members are comfortable in using styles of the younger generation to reach out to today’s urbanized youth through music albums, stage shows and encounter programmes.

With musicians from varied backgrounds like Indian classical or western classical to rock, pop and R&B, the band has managed to evolve a unique style over the past ten years. A style that has opened up exciting ethnic influences in Contemporary Christian Music in India.

Besides the 3-hour stage shows, the band also considers its retreats for musicians, music skill development programmes for budding talents and life encounter programmes as vital elements of its call. Rexband strongly believes that music becomes relevant only when its quality and message brings about a genuine change of heart. The typical 3-hour Rexband show is an extravaganza integrating music, choreography and contemporary theatre performances by Living Vision, a premier Christian theatre initiative. It works in tandem with the band to present the message of Jesus in a powerful and attractive way.
