We started out singing in church when we were really little… and we still do! But we love to write country songs and share our original music everywhere we go. Our passion for Christ and love for entertaining are what drive us, but we don’t take ourselves (or each other) too seriously, and it comes out in our shows. We’re just a couple of crazy brothers on stage and in real life! What you see is what you get… times two. We were members of Team Usher on NBC’s “The Voice" and have had the opportunity to share the stage with some amazing people, like Travis Tritt, Lee Brice, Johnny Cash, Crowder, Peter Furler, and Billy Dean. We feel so blessed to get to do what we love and can’t wait to see what happens next!
JJ Weeks has been involved in ministry in some capacity since childhood. Whether singing solos, performing in church musicals, leading worship, or being a music minister, music and ministry have always gone hand in hand. That heart for ministry led Weeks to attend school in pursuit of a degree in youth ministry, where he ultimately felt called to step out in faith and continue a career in music full-time. In 2001 he took that step and started touring the southeast. In 2003 he pulled a band together for a special worship night at his local church and never looked back.
“It’s been a crazy road of really great times and really hard times but God has always been faithful” Weeks says. “I pray that we will always be a vessel that God can count on to deliver whatever message He wants to deliver.”
I Am Spartacus
"Hailing from Greenbrier, TN - I Am Spartacus is the greatest band of this or any generation. With harmonies reminiscent of the beach boys and melodies that dance off the tongue like raindrops on rooftops, once captured, your ears will be sentenced to a lifetime of pure pop rock euphoria without parole."
One thing we all have in common is Life. We’re all trying to make sense of it, we’re all trying to get the most out of it. I aspire to write music that everyone, in all walks of life, can relate to. All my music is inspired by the evidence I see of God at work in my life. May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart always be acceptable in his sight. I’m a staff worship leader for #thefunchurch in Sikeston, Missouri (2014-Present) and I’m an independent touring artist (2010-Present). I’ve spent the last eight years leading worship and performing in venues and churches all over the U.S. (and even the U.K.). I’ve opened for/shared stages with: Jimmy Needham, The Almost, Sidewalk Prophets, Tenth Avenue North, Matt Maher, Peter Furler, John Crist and have performed in the canal side lounge on ‘Kidd Kraddick in the morning.’ I released my first full length album (“Love & Life”) on November 4, 2016. It’s available to stream/download on: Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Cd Baby, Amazon mp3 and can be heard on the local radio stations in southern Missouri. If we haven’t met, we should! Follow me on social media and let’s be friends! To God be the glory forever, Amen. -DJL

2+One is a Christian band founded in Toledo, Ohio by two brothers, Jacob and Zachary Scally. The digit 2 represents 2 brothers coming together for a bigger purpose, the "+" represents the cross on which Christ died for us, and the "one" represents the ONE God we were perfectly created by. In the spring of 2012, God put the love of music and worship in the hearts of Jacob and Zach. Soon after that, they began performing in front of people and speaking the name of Jesus to the world. The title of their new album, "Anchored in Faith" symbolizes that in the struggles and successes of life, we will remain anchored in faith through it all. A bible verse that is modeled for their band comes from the book of Philippians. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13).
