Trevecca’s annual Welcome Week for students will include the music of Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors. Holcomb and the band will present a concert on Thursday evening, August 28, in the Boone Convocation Center on Trevecca’s campus. The doors open at 7 PM with music starting at 8 PM. The concert is open to the public, and the University is donating a portion of the cost of each ticket to Blood:Water Mission.
The release of his first album, Washed in Blue (2005), and its placement in several television shows established Holcomb as an up-and-coming performer-songwriter. He proved that new status with seven more albums: Live from Memphis (2007), A Neighborly Christmas (2008), Passenger Seat (2008), A Million Miles Away (2009), Chasing Somebody (2011), Through the Night: Live in the Studio (2012), and Good Light (2013).
Other Holcomb songs have been featured on television. The NBA’s preview of its 2011-2012 season featured "Live Forever,” which was also used in promotions for the series finale of House M.D. His song “What Would I do Without You” was featured on How I Met Your Mother.
Holcomb’s songwriting and singing partner is his wife, Ellie Bannister, who performs as part of the Neighbors. The Holcombs are active in Nashville YoungLife and have sung at YoungLife camps throughout the U. S.
The August 28 concert will also feature the music of Five Piece Fortune and Jake Neumar. Tickets can be purchased at itickets.com and cost $10 for Trevecca students and $15 for all others. To order tickets for this concert, click here.
