Stettler Alliance has a sell-out performance of Tim and the Glory Boys

It was a crowd like none other as Stettler and area community packed the Alliance Church auditorium on Saturday evening, March 18.

It was a crowd like none other as Stettler and area community packed the Alliance Church auditorium with the foyer spilling over on Saturday evening, March 18 as the music of Tim and the Glory Boys filled the space.

“The show sold out, we ended up having to put down extra seats in the foyer,” said Tyler Ans, one of the pastors at the Stettler Alliance Church. “I’ve known Tim since he was in his original band Starfield.”

The band was invited by the Alliance Church last year and got a great response, which had them include Stettler in their Hootenannny Tour this year.

“We will have them over next year too when they begin their new tour, so everyone be ready,” Ans said. “The band has a unique sound that really resonates with numerous age groups and I personally enjoy their type of music and know of so many others who enjoy it as well, so we thought, why not bring them to our town!”

If engaging the audience and getting everyone involved in the space was the band’s purpose they did it pretty well.

Playing upbeat Christian numbers, the band members shared the story of why they were on this tour, narrating how while living in Cambodia they had seen some difficult situations of child trafficking and they were raising funds to give the children “an education”.

The band informed the audience that if they would like to sponsor a child they could do so in different ways, and many community members donated generously.

With spring here, the church is getting ready for its summer program.

“We are planning to have our free Vacation Bible Studies program that will run from July 31 to Aug. 4 and community members should keep an eye out on our Facebook page and website for registration dates,” Ans added.

Stettler Alliance will also have some free family movie nights throughout the summer.

Ans said that the church was in contact with three other bands to possibly arrange some shows within the next 12 months.

“Last year we had the band, The Color come out and that was a huge success as well, we are looking into having them come out again,” Ans stated. “The bands we’ve been speaking to are award winners, as well as aired regularly. I believe having bands like these is important to our community as it brings our community together.”
