MIKESCHAIR Invites Fans To Mikestable

NASHVILLE, TN. (Top40 Charts/ Curb Records) - Curb Records recording artist MIKESCHAIR has partnered with Food for the Hungry and extended a challenge to their fans to get involved.

The call to action came together when band mates Mike Grayson and Jesse Hale watched people gather at the church across from their apartment each Thursday night. There would be music and ministry, but there was more going on. This weekly gathering was when the church opened the doors of their food pantry to people of the community who needed more then just fellowship. The guys were humbled and surprised by the hardship of people literally in their own backyard.

Seeing the need so close to home inspired guys to take action and "mikestable" was born. Lead singer, Mike Grayson says "mikestable" is just the start, "It's a vision and a dream of the band's to encourage our fans to not just donate an item of food, but act out the gospel." The band asks fans to get involved by bringing a non perishable food item with them to each show. The food will then be contributed to local food banks and church outreach programs. At each of the band's shows there will be a special table set up with information about organizations and programs that fans can become involved with, thus encouraging them to be a part of 'something bigger.'"

Recently MIKESCHAIR partnered with Food for the Hungry and has begun training with them. Food for the Hungry works in more than 26 developing countries providing disaster and emergency relief as well as sustainable development programs. The organization was founded in the early seventies by Dr. Larry Ward who was inspired by the teachings of Psalm 146:7 that reads, "He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry."

"The whole goal is to encourage fans to get involved," says Grayson. "There is so much hurt and need in the world, action can start with something as simple as bringing a can of food to a show." MIKESCHAIR hopes people will come to their show and feel inspired to act and wherever God is pulling them there will be information at that table to help them on their journey.

MIKESCHAIR is currently on the road encouraging fans with their current single "Can't Take Away." The band's debut Curb album is slated for later this year.

Based in Nashville, Curb Records is the home of superstars Tim McGraw, LeAnn Rimes, Hank Williams, Jr., Rodney Atkins, Jo Dee Messina, Wynonna, Clay Walker, Steve Holy, Lee Brice, Kimberley Locke, Natalie Grant, Michael English, Plumb and Selah as well as many other exciting Country, Christian and Pop Music recording artists.
