David Crowder Band
David Crowder Band is a 6-piece electronic rock and church band from Waco, Texas.
The band began when David Crowder realized that almost half of the students at Baylor University were not attending church although it is a Christian university. He and Chris Seay started University Baptist Church in 1996. Crowder continued to worship throughout the year. The church's congregation grew, as did the band's lineup.
Crowder began writing songs to incorporate into the worship times at the church and eventually the church released an independent CD, Pour Over Me, followed by All I Can Say in 1999. These CDs brought the band to a wider audience and invitations to festivals and events followed. The band was signed to sixstepsrecords/Sparrow Records and has released six more albums to date. The band tours the United States continuously. Kyle Lake, the former University Baptist Church priest and longtime friend of the band, has had a strong influence on the band's music in terms of content and inspiration.
With their release, A Collision, in September 2005, David Crowder Band has explored a new realm of musical diversity. The album houses a mix of bluegrass, folk, alternative, and worship, woven together with a touch of electronic ambience. This release landed them the #2 spot on the iTunes Music Store and the #39 spot on Billboard 200 only one day after its release.
On the same day as the release of A Collision, their song Turkish Delight was released on the Music Inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia compilation CD.
On March 19, 2007, the band officially started recording its newest album. Titled Remedy, the band also revealed the album's website, http://www.remedyiscoming.com , which allows fans to follow the band via live webcams, and discover more about the album. Famous southern rock musician Ted Nugent is expected to make a guest appearance on the album, on the song We Won't Be Quiet.

According to Crowder himself, it is improper to refer to the band as The David Crowder Band. The group prefers to omit the article, as they do not want to make the band appear so definitive and concrete as The David Crowder Band.
The addition of the asterisk ( ) to the name, rendering David Crowder Band, is a common occurrence evoking much mystery. In text on their website and other media, the asterisk is omitted. The asterisk, however, can be seen on the David Crowder Band music video Foreverandever Etc.... No opinions on the asterisk's purpose are reliable at this point and time.
A Collision first existed as a Microsoft Word document that Crowder had put together from discussions with Kyle Lake. David Crowder has been known to use a keytar which has become a point of mention in DC B's concerts. During live performances of the hit single Foreverandever Etc., David Crowder often prompts the keyboardist to play the theme song from Super Mario Bros. In recent live performances of a new song, David Crowder plays a modified guitar-peripheral similar to that used in the video game Guitar Hero.
