Faith Band

Faith Band is an American rock band from Indianapolis, Indiana. Between 1973 and 1979 the group released 5 albums that were distributed throughout the United States. The group gained popularity in their hometown in 1978 with the song Dancin' Shoes. Later that year Nigel Olsson recorded a version of the song which became a Top 20 hit.

Lead singer Carl Storie and bassist Mark Cawley formed the duo Blinding Tears in 1985, and released a self titled album on Riva Records in 1986. Carl Storie released a solo album in 1999 [ 2] Dave Bennett released a solo album Out of the Bleu in 2004.

Johnny Cascella moved on to John Mellencamp's band where he played keyboards until his untimely death in 1992. The liner notes in the album "Human Wheels" includes a dedication to him by Mellencamp. Johnny's keyboard expertise on an amped-up Hammond B3 organ connected to an over-driven Leslie (rotary-doppler effect) speaker box was awe-inspiring.

Dave Barnes went on to work with his brother, Terry Barnes, for Ticketmaster in the mid-1980s and helped to make it one of the largest ticket sales and distribution companies in the world. The Faith Band is currently recording an album at DaddyReal studios in Indianapolis. It is set to be released sometime in 2013.
