Internationally renowned CCM artists, Rexband, put on a spectacular show at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre last night in what can only be described as Bollywood meets Hillsong.
A fusion of various Indian and western music styles were on display with an eclectic mix comprising of Hindustani, Carnatic, pop, rock, reggae, jazz and even hip-hop.
The talented but humble musicians performed in an entertaining and emotional show which had everyone on their feet including priests and nuns but also managed tug at the audience’s heartstrings.
Archbishop of Perth, Timothy Costelloe, was in attendance and enjoyed the performance so much that he stayed for the entire 4 hours of the concert.
“It may sound trite to say so but in the deepest sense it is exciting, and uplifting, and energising to be a Christian”, said the Archbishop.
“A sense of fun, and the ability to really enjoy yourself, go hand in hand with faith in the one from whom life comes in the first place”, he added.
Despite the event going beyond the venue’s allocated time, many of the band members stayed behind to greet and thank the audience members.
During the Australian tour, the band will perform in 7 cities and having already graced the stages of Canberra and Melbourne.
One of the band members, Stephen Devassy said, “If you’ve got any friends in Darwin, Sydney or Adelaide tell them to come to the show.”
