Emmanuel Ridge coming to

Red Barn Radio soundstage

Showtime: 8 pm

Emmanuel Ridge, January 18th, 2014. That’s the day it all started. After two weeks of hand-wringing and pacing, climbing the walls and praying to make the right decision, Emmanuel Ridge was born from a conversation between two guys trying to decide what to do after God pulled them away from other endeavors. They knew they wanted to make sure that things were done the right way, and that old-fashioned values like honesty and hard work were put at the core of something they wanted to become more than just them. Greg and Ron had spent many an hour going back and forth about what was the best way to turn a difficult situation into a good one, and once the decision was made, they have never looked back. They added a bass player and Banjo player extraordinaire Jeff Raines from a long list of people who were all enthusiastic about playing and singing, but were more concerned about their wallets then the opportunity to do something from the start and make some history. They made the decision to let God guide them and take what comes. Not long afterwards, young Nathan Sears joined the group after a friend made a call to them on his behalf. They will play for just about anyone, although they choose not to play bars and nightclubs out of respect to God and their Faith and Salvation. They all have a love for their craft and a passion to see it done for those who appreciate it the most. Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, North Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia, all these states have seen one or more of these guys appear to play and entertain crowds both small and large. From tiny country Churches to big outdoor venues, they have all spent their lives making music in one form or another. Emmanuel Ridge brings influences varying all over the world of music and blended to make a sound they hope and pray will be pleasing to their fans and their Creator. Bound by God- Bonded by Music. That’s our motto, and how we live.
