ANARCHY and church do not often go together but they will when punk comes to town on Saturday and Sunday, January 29 and 30.

Sounds of Salvation (SoS), a Reading-based ska, rock, punk and Christian worship band, will be performing at the Centenary Methodist Church, Red Lion Street, Boston.

SoS play an eclectic mix of contemporary worship songs, ‘ska’d up’ hymns and some original material.

The band consists of Pete and Andy on trumpets, Hannah on lead sax, Big P on rhythm sax, Calum on trombone, singer Bex, singer and guitarist Mike, Thos on super electric six-string bass guitar and Lekai Lee on the drums.

The band boast a high-octane performance.

Formed in 2004, the band members travel the length and breadth of the country worshipping God with a sound they say ‘has been likened to setting an elephant loose on a marching band’.

They said, however, it is not all about the music, SoS love ‘to celebrate God’s glory with a vibrant energy that will get audiences off their feet and dancing like their dads in no time’.

They have performed at events from shopping centres, church services and youth events to national conferences and Christian gatherings including regular invitations to events such as the Greenbelt Festival.

February 2007 saw the release of their debut album Like It Is.

The latest album S’ka gje was released summer 2008 and is available to order online now.

The show on the Saturday starts at 7pm and on Sunday starts at 3.30pm.

Both shows are free admission.
