We would love to partner up with local businesses to tackle our commitment to this cause. We are hosting the event on Wednesday, July 26th at 5 PM. The event will be centered around a silent raffle featuring local dining, entertainment and more! We are in search of in-kind donations to add to our third annual raffle. All sponsors will be clearly listed for participants to take note of and you and your team are encouraged to attend! 100% of the proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the Pelotonia team who dubbed themselves, “Kicking Cancer’s Asphalt”. Local Cantina Clintonville will be preparing a signature cocktail along with designating a beer in which $1 of each drink purchased will be donated to the fund.

Lifehouse & Switchfoot: Looking for Summer Tour at Express Live!
PromoWest Productions – Lifehouse & Switchfoot: Looking for Summer Tour EXPRESS LIVE! - 405 Neil Ave Columbus, OH 43215 Wednesday, July 26, 2017; Doors open at 6:00 PM $37.50 In Advance / $40.00 Day of Show General Admission - All Ages This show is outdoors - Rain or Shine! Opening Artist: Brynn Elliott Led by singer/songwriter Jason Wade, Lifehouse emerged in the early 2000s with a commercial blend of pop/rock melody and throaty, post-grunge vocals. Wade, who originally tagged the band Blyss upon its inception in 1996, was raised by missionary parents in a variety of locales. He eventually settled in Los Angeles with his mother and took a keen interest in songwriting. Bassist Sergio Andrade lived next door, and the two spent hours in Wade's garage, fine-tuning their original compositions and laying the brickwork for Lifehouse's accessible sound. Those rehearsals paved the way for a self-released album, Diff's Lucky Band, as well as a series of shows at church worship services. Lifehouse resisted the temptation to become a full-fledged Christian band, however, and instead signed a contract with Dreamworks Records as an alternative rock trio. Drummer Jon Palmer completed the lineup. No Name Face marked the band's official debut in the fall of 2000. The album enjoyed double-platinum sales on the strength of "Hanging by a Moment," which was the most played radio track of 2001. In a market dominated by teen pop, Lifehouse stood out as champions of guitar-based music, and their unexpected success drew them back inside the studio to work on a follow-up album. Wade pieced together a revised Lifehouse and returned in early 2005 with a self-titled third album. For the touring that followed its release, Wade and percussionist Rick Woolstenhulme, Jr. were joined by former AM Radio bassist/vocalist Bryce Soderberg, who remained with the group for its return to alternative rock on 2007's Who We Are. Lifehouse and Who We Are proved to be fairly popular releases, with both albums going gold thanks to a trio of Top 40 singles: "First Time," "You and Me," and "Whatever It Takes." Smoke & Mirrors appeared three years later, sporting a collaboration with rapper/songwriter Kevin Rudolf on the leadoff single "Halfway Gone." Debuting at number six on the Billboard Top 200, Smoke & Mirrors was a successful record. By the summer, Lifehouse announced they'd left their label and were entering a hiatus. Each member pursued their own project -- Wade worked on a solo album, Soderberg started a band called KOMOX, Woolstenhulme, Jr. played with the Goo Goo Dolls -- but by 2014, they had reunited. In May of 2015, they resurfaced with Out of the Wasteland, a new album produced by Jude Cole.
