Jacob and Matthew Band (WAL)
The Jacob and Matthew Band, playing contemporary Christian music, emerged in the early 2000s, serving as teens in their local parish. Throughout the years, their ministry and music has developed with age and experience.Today, the Jacob and Matthew Band travels throughout the USA and internationally, carrying with them a vibrant, energetic sound that inspires people of all ages to praise and rejoice in the goodness of our Lord. The band is led by singers/songwriters Matthew and Michael Paul Leon, who serve the Church as full time youth ministers and music ministers. Matthew and Michael Paul are joined by the talented and passionate composer/pianist, Mr. David Stanton; bass player, Derrick Wong; and drummer, Paul “Mack” VanDeRiet. “We don’t want our music to just be about entertaining people. We want to make a difference in people’s lives; to inspire and affirm, motivate, empower and challenge people to live in Christ.”
Blessed with the opportunity and privilege to gather with souls of all ages to share their prayer song, the Jacob and Matthew Band seeks to connect with and inspire all whom they encounter through their ministry. Whether it’s ministering to millions at World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a few thousand across the United States, or a handful of teenagers in their hometown, the Jacob and Matthew Band encourages and challenges youth and adults alike to form a deeper relationship with Christ.
