Without a doubt, this is one of the most underrated Catholic music artists I have had occasion to work with (and I could give you a list of dozens). They are a wonderful example of young adults striving to live a life faithful to the Gospel, evident in their witness and music. I have been personally inspired by their ability to engage an audience with storytelling and song. In fact, we have hosted the group twice in our parish, and I recommended to the organizers of the Youth Rally and Mass for Life (hosted by the Archdiocese of Washington on the day of the annual March for Life) that they might want to consider using FAB for the Rally/Mass. (Full Armor Band was the music support for the 2014 Rally/Mass at the
DC Armory location) I have no reservations about recommending them to bring joy to the youth of your diocese.

I am the assistant pastor of St. John the Evangelist Parish in Honesdale, PA in the Diocese of Scranton. Full Armor has shared their tremendous gifts with numerous parishes throughout the diocese as well as several times at our annual diocesan youth rally in the summer, entitled "Light the Fire." At our parish we have been very blessed to have hosted them on three occasions so far, and they have been very well received each time. I recommend them not only for their professionalism, their high musical talent and creativity, but also for their deep Catholic faith that has always motivated and inspired them. They were punctual and very cooperative with everything we asked them to do; and the students were very comfortable in their presence. I recommend them at any Catholic event that involves youth, whether for a concert, retreat, Adoration, or Mass.

Our parish has had the pleasure of having the Full Armor Band share their ministry for the last two years. They have come to our church and played for Mass and a special night of Eucharistic Adoration. All the band members are very talented and approachable. Our teens and adults have loved being able to interact and share in such a powerful praise and worship evening. They really know how to engage the youth and encourage them to go deeper in their faith. The music is very uplifting and spirit led. One of their songs that really touched our heart was about where is God during our trials and tragic moments in history. We have enjoyed having such amazing young adults share their love of Christ and seeing how they use their gifts and talents to build the kingdom of God here on earth.We are looking forward to their return this year in the Spring! I would highly recommend them to any parish.

Rockville Centre loves Full Armor! I first saw Full Armor perform at the Archdiocesan Youth Rally two years ago and knew then that I had to have them witness to our young church on Long Island. In November 2013 was the first time that Full Armor came down to Long Island for our Youth Kick-Off – the young people loved them so much, that we had them again for our 2014 Kick-Off. If you are looking for a band who will work with your theme of the day – and “go with the flow” of what is happening during the course of that day – Full Armor is the band to work with. They are a faith-filled group of young people ready to witness to their faith – and to spread their love and joy for our God through their witness talks and music! For us, it was a great way to begin our year!
