Faith Band is an American rock band from Indianapolis, Indiana. From 1973 to 1979, they released 5 albums: Faith in 1973, Excuse Me, I Just Cut an Album in 1977, Rock'n Romance in 1978, and Face to Face and Vital Signs in 1979.1 They gained popularity in the Indianapolis area in 1978 with Rock'n Romance, which contained the song "Dancin' Shoes", of which Nigel Olsson's cover of the song would become a Top 20 hit that year. Their lead singer Carl Storie and bassist Mark Cawley formed the duo "Blinding Tears" in 1985, and released one album: Blinding Tears on Riva Records in 1986. Carl Storie released one solo album, Carl Storie in 1999.2 Dave Bennett released one solo album, Out of the Bleu in 2004. Johnny Cascella moved on to the John Cougar Mellencamp 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 John 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.
