Poetry Band is far from your average rock or Christian band. The band features the spiritual poems of author Wilson Sherman combined with an ever-growing collective of talented musicians. Poetry Band is a kind of modern opera and musical theatre with Sherman writing, speaking, and singing the poetry to the accompaniment of the band. With several 65 minute non-stop albums, the result is unique, enlightening, and unlike anything else ever recorded. Although they are one of few spoken word Christian bands in the world, the marriage of poetry and music has a tradition. Perhaps, as Wilson has said, "the first poetry band was David jamming with musicians on Psalms."

Wilson has penned two books, "Exit and "Rooms," and is currently wrapping up his third book, "Revival". Revival has already been put to music by Poetry Band and has had the honor of getting personal recognition from former President Bill Clinton, who called the CD, "Great!" Clinton has been a fan of Poetry Band since the days he listened to their albums in the White House.

In 2008, Wilson and Poetry Band are once again breaking the sound barrier by staging a musical from his book "Rooms." Described as a celebration of the Holy Ghost, and a spiritual journey, the theatrical performance will combine spoken word and song and amazing new music. There are not many spirituals in musical history, and Poetry Band plans to advance the good cause by producing "Rooms" as a spiritual musical for CD/ DVD and possible film. Welcome to the 21st century!

-LA CA MUSIC (ASCAP) extends an invitation to talented musicians everywhere, to join Poetry Band for the new project ROOMS, and is auditioning for exceptional virtuoso players that are inspiration to participate.
