Rejoice Band

Rejoice Band

Led by Joe McArdle (vocals, guitar, keyboards), the Rejoice Band has been performing at the 10:30 AM Rejoice Service for several years. According to Joe, “The Rejoice service really rocks! We do Church differently here at St. David’s.”

Indeed, the congregation can often be seen clapping and dancing along with the energetic three piece band. Whether it is an updated version of a standard hymn, a recent Contemporary Christian tune, or even the occasional original song, the Rejoice Service truly is a celebration of God’s love.

Joining Joe as the core of the Rejoice Band are Ed Gerold on bass and vocals and Joe Silvestro on drums. Ed has been a musician since he was seven or eight years old, and has been known to occasionally contribute on guitar. Joe Silvestro has been playing drums since “seeing Ringo on the Ed Sullivan show.”  He uses a hi-tech Hart Dynamics electronic drumkit, which is capable of a vast array of percussive sounds. So what do they sound like? Click on the songs below for a sample…

    So sad to see churches moving away from God’s word
