BarlowGirl consists of sisters Alyssa (lead vocals, bass, keyboard), Becca (backing vocals, guitar) and Lauren Barlow (lead vocals, drums). This all-girl band has been performing since the late 1990s and is currently touring to churches and other venues around the country.

Me In Motion, comprised of lead vocalist and guitarist Seth Mosley, bassist Tim Wilson and drummer Brian Dexter, will be opening for BarlowGirl. The group is an up-and-coming Christian rock act, having released their first full album, "Me In Motion," in March of this year and having songs on the Christian rock charts already.
