Local band 'Remnant' to perform Saturday

Local band 'Remnant' to perform Saturday




LAKEPORT, Calif. – A small Lake County band known as Remnant has been invited to perform in Washington D.C. at the Washington Monument on the weekend of Sept. 11 and 12.

It is estimated that over one million people attended last year’s event, and this year promises to be even greater.

Join the band at 6 p.m. this Saturday, Aug. 14, as they prepare to represent Lake County in Washington, D.C.

The band will perform at a free benefit concert at the Soper-Reese Performing Arts Theatre, 275 S. Main St., Lakeport.

Local artists Jonathan Wynacht and Anna Mix, both sharing lead on vocals and acoustic-electric guitar, plus Joshua Hammond on bass and John Mix on drums, have been working together since 1992, serving and leading worship in an area church as well as Lakeport’s Library Park.

While developing a catalog of nearly 300 original songs, they produced and recorded their first project in 1994 and later produced two more CDs under Wynacht's own name. That first project was entitled “Remnant” and the name later stuck.

Today, as a small but seasoned Christian band, Remnant is incredibly honored for the opportunity to represent its hometown community at the nation’s capitol.

The free Saturday event will feature live and silent auctions aimed at allowing individuals the opportunity to share in the excitement of kicking off Remnant’s journey.

Also, Remnant will be performing a live, sneak-preview set of select songs slated for D.C., including new material only recently put down.

As the September date arrives, they will then begin posting their travels on Facebook.

“It doesn’t matter where people are from or where they are in life right now – we want them to be blessed,” the group said.
