Multi Grammy and Dove award winner tobyMac whose critically acclaimed album Diverse City has just received RIAA gold certification, will once again live up to the definition of “diversity” as the Winter Wonder Slam Tour, once again sponsored by Total Axxess, announces details on the highly anticipated 2006 line-up of artists and markets.
Hitting 16 markets between November 24-December 16, Winter Wonder Slam will once again benefit the work of the U.S. Marine Corps in its’ annual Toys For Tots campaign. The mission of the Toys For Tots Foundation is to provide a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas and concert-goers will again this year be encouraged to bring an unwrapped gift to the event. Last year’s Winter Slam produced multiple sell-outs over its’ eight market run, setting a new tour record for the amount of gifts collected for Toys For Tots.
Talent set to perform this year on the billing with tobyMac includes a litany of hot new artists in contemporary Christian music. The tour will feature Canadian band Hawk Nelson whose signature brand of pop/punk has lit up the Christian charts with their latest single. Everything You Ever Wanted continuing their wave of success nationally. INO/Columbia artists The Afters, whose single Beautiful Love experienced major success on radio and MTV, will be making their initial debut on the Wonder Slam stage, as will Gotee/Maverick artist Family Force 5, bringing their personal style of ‘crunk rock’ to the stage. Rounding out the tour package is breaking Gotee artist Ayiesha Woods whose June release of her debut single Happy has climbed the national charts this summer.
In making the initial announcement of this year’s tour, tobyMac noted his pleasure at the artists assembled for the Winter Wonder Slam mission. He notes: “During the holidays, everyone needs a break from studying for exams and Christmas shopping. I wanted to put together a diverse tour that rocks in many musical directions but always points to One. The Winter Wonder Slam Tour does have a Christmas theme but not to worry– every band will be playing their hits and doing it the way they do!”
