JesusFreakHideout.com wanted to celebrate its 14-year anniversary in a big way, so the website’s President, John DiBiase, decided to host an exclusive after party on the first night of the Purple Door Festival in Lewisberry, PA. One-hundred invited guests were treated to an acoustic performance by Gotee Records’ alternative rock band, House Of Heroes and heard songs from the group’s new CD, Suburba.

“I want to thank everyone who has supported JesusFreakHideout.com
over the years,” says DiBiase.  “It’s crazy to even think that the website was started while I was still in high school and music was just starting to find a place on the Internet. It’s such an honor for me to be able to bring the best of Christian music to the fans.  I can’t begin to thank House Of Heroes enough for making our anniversary event so special with their incredible performance that night! I can’t think of a better way to  commemorate the site’s anniversary. I feel blessed to be a part of the Christian music community and I’m looking forward to another fourteen years and beyond!”

The next big event for John DiBiase and his wife, Amy, is welcoming their first child, William (Will), in October.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
