Merry Christmas from Give Me A Break Radio

                                                             with Host Bobby Pizazz

You have to start with the word harmony when you talk about the Reminders. It’s that hard to define, almost magical thing that happens sometimes between musicians … that draws you in and holds you.



Albums Available At Amazon, iTunes and CDBaby

The blending of their voices, their personalities and their takes on life, mixes itself up into something tangible; you’ll feel it when you hear them – like the taste of the salt spray in the air where they live, in three small towns on the Atlantic coast of Delaware. Hearty Americana, leathery Country and bluesy Gospel would come close to describing the sound.

You’d feel as comfortable seeing them in a sold out concert hall as you would in one of their rehearsals; they’re that real. The songs speak for themselves. Hope will be your take away.

REMINDERSTHE REMINDERS are Back!
After a year of recovering from life threatening health issues, by the grace of God and some of the best medical care possible, the Reminders are coming back stronger than ever and returning to the road in November for the 2016 Christmas season! It was October of 2015 when they regrettably had to postpone their upcoming dates because of health issues with John and then Kevin. The Good news is they are feeling better than ever and are anxiously awaiting their return. Come out and celebrate the Christmas season with the band at a venue near you. The band has not been idle in their time off, they began recording their 5th album this summer in Woodstock NY and Twelve brand new Reminders songs will be coming out early next year, stay tuned, this Album is a very special effort from the guys and we are sure you will be blessed by their new offering. More to come on this as the release date approaches.The Reminders

The Reminders bring a lifetime of music to the stage and the studio. They love doing this, you can tell. Their sound is a unique blend of Americana and Folk Rock with deep roots in blues, country and gospel. Audiences across the country have agreed, with overwhelming enthusiasm, that they need to do it more often. They just have that wonderful chemistry that is so hard to define, but so much fun to see and hear. Individually, they’ve been honored by the Recording Industry Association of America (The Grammy people), the National Endowment for the Arts, Billboard Magazine, ASCAP, BMI, and many others. You don’t wanna miss them live. They’ve done enough in their careers to get you there, they’ll do enough live to get you comin’ back.

El shaddai, el shaddai,
El-elyon na adonia,
Age to age you’re still the same,
By the power of your name.

Through your love and through the ram,
You saved the son of abraham;
By the power of your hand,
Turned the sea into dry land.
To the outcast on her knees,
You were the God who really sees,
And by your might,
You set your children free.

El-elyon na adonia,
Age to age you’re still the same,
By the power your name.
El shaddai, el shaddai,
Erkamka na adonai,
We will praise and lift you high,
El shaddai.

Through the years you’ve made it clear,
time of christ was near,
Though the people failed see
What messiah ought to be.
Though your word contained the plan,
just could not understand
Your most awesome work was done
Through the frailty of your son.

El shaddai, el shaddai,
El-elyon na adonai,
Age to age you’re still the same,
By the power Your name.
El shaddai, el shaddai,
Erkamka na adonai,
We will praise and lift you high,
El shaddai.

El shaddai, el shaddai,
El-elyon na adonai,
Age to age you’re still the same,
By the power of your name.
El shaddai, el shaddai,
Erkamka na adonai,
We will praise and lift you high,
El shaddai.

By the power of your name.

Erkamka na adonai,
We will praise and lift you high,
El shaddai.

We will praise and lift you high,
El shaddai.
