03/19/2014 - Rapture Ruckus Returns to RiseFest

RiseFest is pleased to announce the next artist added to the 2014 lineup, highly entertaining and energetic, Rapture Ruckus. The group will perform on Friday night, host a dance party afterwards, and perform on Saturday.


“Rapture Ruckus is one of those bands you just love seeing perform.” said President and Founder of RISE Ministries, Rob Roozeboom. “From the first time I saw them, to 2012 when they were at the festival, I’ve always looked forward to seeing them. We’re happy to have them back and add them to our Friday night and Saturday lineups.”



In a market flooded with bands it takes something extra special to grab your attention. Rapture Ruckus is one of those rare groups that are cutting through the noise and connecting with people all over the world using their catchy blend of rock and hip-hop. 


Originally from New Zealand, Rapture Ruckus has continued to garner an increasing following with extensive touring through the United States, Canada, South Africa, Singapore, and Australia since 2004. In 2009 the band signed with BEC Recordings and released their self-titled U.S. debut that includes crowd-pleasing choruses of pop anthems “Tonight” and “No Matter What” and bold declarations of “I Believe” as well as their monster hit “Hold On.” In February 2014 the band released their newest album, “Invader, Vol. 1” that includes the hit “In Crowd.” 


RiseFest features well known and up and coming Christian artists. In addition to  musical acts, attendees can visit seminars and listen to speakers. Children can play games and make crafts in the Kid’s Zone. RiseFest 2014 marks the festival’s ninth installment, the third in Sheldon after being held in Orange City since 2005. RISE Ministries, along with its sponsors, partners, and volunteers seek to make the atmosphere of the event fun and meaningful for all ages.
