Peter Furler Band with Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil at Sam's Burger Joint, Sunday May 18th

"After 22 years as the main creative force behind Newsboys, followed by his 2011 solo success On Fire, Peter Furler could be excused if he'd decided to mellow out a bit or rest on his laurels. Instead, the writer behind 27 #1 radio singles has come back with one of the strongest albums of his career, Sun and Shield. Reteaming with longtime producer/lyricist Steve Taylor for the first time since Newsboys Gold-certified Adoration album, Sun and Shield finds Peter Furler Band -- featuring Dave Ghazarian (formerly of Superchick and Audio Adrenaline) on bass and Jeff Irizarry on drums -- combining an ambitious collection of new songs with a more muscular, band-driven sound that harkens back to the glory days of Take Me To Your Leader. Timed for release during this spring's tour with Third Day and Skillet, Sun and Shield is the sound of an artist at the peak of his creative powers. Special Guests include Steve Taylor & The Perfect Foil." Doors 6:15pm, Show 7pm. All Ages. GA only, $23
