This past weekend, Save The City recording artist Byron “Mr. Talkbox” Chambers hosted one of the country’s most popular annual events, The Alive Festival, held June 22nd through June 25th in Mineral City, Ohio. Chambers not only hosted but entertained crowds totaling up to 15,000 people for the long weekend gathering, as he also took the stage on Friday evening to perform his own set and again on Saturday night to perform on Toby Mac’s set. Other artists who appeared during the festival were Third Day, Skillet, Newsboys, Switchfoot, Tenth Avenue North, Family Force Five, Chris August, and more.

“Hosting the Alive Festival was an amazing experience for me, both as a person and as an artist,” exclaims Byron “Mr. Talkbox” Chambers. “I met some incredible people while dropping the “Joy Bomb” on Ohio!  Bill and Kathy Graening are some of the most genuinely loving people I know, and I look forward to working with them in the future.”

This year’s four-day experience, directed under the leadership of the Graening’s, completed its 24th year in a row of music, worship, teaching, recreation, and fellowship. Director Bill Graening shares, “Byron is multi- talented, passionate, engaging and a gifted communicator. He helped make Alive 11 a huge success and he will be invited back!”

With numerous upcoming tour stops this summer and fall, Chambers will next appear at Creation Northeast July 2nd in Shirleysburg, PA and at Lifest 2011, to be held July 8th in Oshkosh, Wisc.
