Comprised of four talented musicians, including Mike Bolio, lead vocals / rhythm guitar, Al Weaver, lead guitar / vocals, Robbie Brown, drums and Rick Rainone, bass guitar / vocals, Sent Forth has performed at churches and other venues throughout Central and Northern New York.

Whether performing original songs from its CD, The Rest of My Life, or its favorite contemporary Christian tunes, the band’s performances are enjoyed by people of all ages.

According to band member, Bolio, music is an important part of the group’s ministry and its commitment is evident in its live performances.

“Together, our chemistry makes this band what it is,” said Bolio.  “Separately we are good musicians praising God, but together, something wonderful happens!”

The Sent Forth concert at Holy Trinity Church can also make something wonderful happen for Oswego County families and individuals in need. The concert will serve as a fundraiser for Catholic Charities of Oswego County’s food pantry. “With the demand for food subsidy at record levels, and continuing budget cuts, it’s very difficult for us to keep our shelves filled and provide nourishment for those in need. Thankfully the support we receive from caring individuals, local businesses, and other organizations is helping us to continue our efforts to feed hungry families throughout Oswego County,” said Mary-Margaret Pezzella-Pekow, executive director of Catholic Charities of Oswego County. “We are truly appreciative of the support we are receiving from the members of Sent Forth and from Holy Trinity Parish for hosting the concert.”

The concert will begin at 7 p.m.

Opening the show will be local singer / songwriter, Dennis Shortslef.

While admission is free, those attending are asked to bring a donation of non-perishable food items for Catholic Charities’ food pantry.
