Whatever Happened to the Sweet Comfort Band?

May 14th, 2010

JOHN SHIRK – Born New Year’s Eve 1972, the Sweet Comfort Band consisted of Rick Thompson on drums and vocals, Kevin Thompson on bass, and Bryan Duncan on keys and vocals.  Later in 1976, Randy Thomas would join the band on guitar and vocals. They put together some memorable Christian albums in the days of vinyl, like “Breaking The Ice”, “Hearts Of Fire”, and “Cutting Edge”. The band went their separate ways in 1984, but then reunited for a special concert at the Creation Festival in 2001.  What may surprise you is that they are planning to get together in 2010 to record a new album with some new songs. One of their goals for this album is to benefit Kevin Thompson, who according to ASSIST News, is now a quadriplegic.  He is facing his disability with a sense of joy and new ministry.  Check out the links below for more details on the Sweet Comfort Band:
