Deland, FL.

The Bloodline Band -- a Contemporary Christian rock band -- formed in DeLand, Florida in the mid 1990s from a group of rock musicians from the Lighthouse Christian Center in DeLeon Springs, FL., and the DeLand Church of God, DeLand, FL. Those included Daryel Crites on guitar and vocals; Eric Chevrier on guitar and vocals; Jim Bailey on bass and vocals; Eron Eslick on keyboards, guitar and vocals; and Billy Bruce (of Valdosta, GA.) on drums and vocals. The band centered its repertoire on covering the CCM artists of the day -- like DeGarmo & Key, Steven Curtis Chapman, Bruce Carroll, Allies, Kerry Livgren, Mark Farner and many others. They performed at area churches and other events, sharing their Christian testimonies and using their God-given musical gifts in service to Christian ministry. You can find all of these guys on Facebook. They give a shout-out to their worship mentor Ernie Garland of DeLand, FL., and Pastors Dave Walker and Mike Coleman.
