 EXPLORE THE “PAGES” and CHECK OUT THOSE “LINKS”

To your right, at the top of the page, you’ll find links to “Pages” that  bear an abundance of info about The NEW EARTH BAND members (“About the Band”) and are jam-packed with details on our currently-available “Retro-Rural”, hopping-good-Country Gospel music CD’s (“The New Earth Band’s CD’s”).

You’ll want to check out Dave Reinwald’s Rocky Mountain Band page, and the fund-raising and benefit work which this band does.   Lee  has been the original bassist right  from the git-go, since The Rocky Mountain Band’s inception in early 2005.  And over the years, NEW EARTH BAND  members Mark Miller (Dobro and guitar) and Rick Guinan (harmonica) also have performed at various fund-raising events with The Rocky Mountain Band.   We have uploaded quite a few of the very best audio tracks from live benefit performances, which eagerly await the click of your mouse.  Give ‘em a listen – this is legitimately good stuff!

Also over there in the “Pages” you’ll discover a variety of articles and sermons – many of them newly posted and updated – for your edification, your amazement, and even some for your amusement.  Moreover, you are most welcome to read and re-read them, copy and print them, email their links to friends and family, insert those links into your own website if you like, and share the Good News Gospel message wherever the opportunity presents itself.  There’s a veritable truckload of inspiration in that upper-right-hand corner!  So, “Go ahead … make your day!”

Plus, in that “Pages” menu there are links to the texts of several very powerful, foundational messages that have been delivered from local pulpits, as well as on the air, such as “Israel, The Overcomer”, “Knowing God”.   These  include links to videos of the presentations, at the top of each text page.  Additional links to those same videos also appear in the “Links” menu, to the right.

Now, if you’re  simply looking for a snicker, a chuckle, a guffaw, or a rolling belly-laugh … you might want to check out “The Time Machine”, which is perpetually under construction  -  but promises to prove worth the pain!

You know, that “Links” section, over there to the right, is absolutely loaded with connections to websites that are guaranteed to scratch you right where you itch – such as our friend and world-famous chocolate-chip cookie guru, Wally “Famous” Amos’ wonderful Read It Loud!

The New Earth Band: Gospel Truth

“Gospel Truth” has enjoyed a respectable amount of airplay, as has our first CD, “The New Earth Band”,  primarily by Classic Country WWSM 1510AM, in the Central Pennsylvania area, giving a ride to “No, Not One” and “Gospel Truth”, as well as “The Door” and “Jesus Never Sang the Blues”, which are from our first album.   “Gospel Truth”  and “No, Not One”  were  also on the regular daily playlist of the Christian Internet station WhiteDove Gospel Radio, for months running.

Then, there’s the  solo project from The NEW EARTH BAND’s “Little Buford”  titled “The Last Kamikaze”, and containing 15 tracks  - and that’s a lot of music, Amigos!   There are 12 originals and 3 traditional, old-time Gospel tunes on this new release that became available April 1, 2011.   It’s a slightly different, refreshing sound, as most songs on “The Last Kamikaze”  feature as many as three and four guitar tracks.  You may click on this CD Baby icon, below, or just click the following  link    >>>  http://cdbaby.com/cd/newearthband3 , to access  “The Last Kamikaze” , listen to audio clips, download tracks, or to buy the whole enchilada!

The New Earth Band & "Little Buford": The Last Kamikaze

THE  GOSPEL  IS  NEITHER  A  DEBATE,  NOR  A  DISCUSSION.   THE  GOSPEL  IS  AN  ANNOUNCEMENT !

IT’S NOT EASY BEING GREEN!  But it’s the environmentally-expedient thing to do!  The NEW EARTH BAND is carrying its share in accepting man’s stewardship of this old earth!  The cover packaging of all three of our CD’s, The NEW EARTH BAND”,  “GOSPEL TRUTH”, and “The LAST KAMIKAZE”  are totally “green”, seriously-spiffy, forward-thinking, and environmentally-friendly.   We’ve taken a giant step upward from the conventional dinosaur plastic jewel case packaging that cracks and breaks, and clogs the landfills.  Instead, we’ve opted for the new, cutting-edge, bio-degradable, UV-coated, light-weight, recycled craftboard  package from our friends at DiscMakers (www.discmakers.com).  We firmly believe that walking God’s walk includes reducing our carbon footprint on this planet!  Hopefully, many other artists will soon begin to follow the lead of The NEW EARTH BAND !

A Message From Crystal Clear of Whitedove Radio    crystalclear@whitedoveradio.com

“We are pleased to have the fellowship of the members of The NEW EARTH BAND.  This fellowship has been a part of Whitedove Radio for several years.  Knowing Brother Lee Schappell, and speaking to him throughout the years, the Holy Spirit has developed bridges where distance is irrelevant. You can know the heart and see the fruit of one’s profession through the actions of his pronounced faith, through Him!   The NEW EARTH BAND  ministers through music what is expressed in their testimony.  We are proud to air them on Whitedove Radio and know any venture they set to do they will do as is pleasing unto our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

May the Lord richly bless you.

As of January 31, 2016, Live365, which was one of the original internet streaming networks, as well as one of the largest, closed its doors and ceased operations, forcing literally thousands of internet radio stations to seek affiliation with new networks, or shut simply down.   Sadly, after 13 years of gospel ministry in song and word, WhiteDove Gospel Radio became one of the latter group.   It had always been our hope and prayer that WhiteDove Gospel Radio would succeed in aligning with a new network and continue its fine work for the advancement of the Good News and the completion of God’s gospel work.

Paula Yvonne “Crystal Clear” Martin

02/10/48 – 10-27-17

Known professionally as “Crystal Clear”, owner and operator of White Dove Gospel Radio, this golden-hearted Sister in Christ not only proclaimed daily the Good News of the Gospel to the world in music, but she truly lived and walked it in real time, frequently pausing to lift up, and minister to, listeners and artists alike. 

At the peak of AM-radio’s heyday, Paula plied her trade at St. Louis’ pioneer “American Graffiti”  top-40 station, KXOK 630AM, before founding White Dove Gospel Radio, by which she faithfully served her Lord with much gladness – and a most-joyful noise!

We genuinely appreciate Crystal’s airing our music across a nine-year span, as well as affording me the personal honor and privilege of recording some creative PSA’s for WhiteDove Gospel Radio.  We’ll be earnestly looking forward to that soon-to-come and long-anticipated Resurrection Morning, and to walking and talking with our Good Sis in this Earth-Made-New!

 

WHEN THE CROWD STRAYS FROM GOD’S PATH, FOLLOW THE PATH, NOT THE CROWD

>>> The NEW EARTH BAND has recently been contacted by Gospel radio station KIIT, on the enchanted isle of Puerto Rico, with the following message:  “Please tell us how we can get your music  to place it in our radio station … we love your music!”  We promptly responded, sending them a little bit of everything! Muchos gracias, Amigos!”  If you’re within reasonable earshot, give KIIT a listen!

>>> The internet Gospel radio station, Gospel Twang, on the Radionomy network, which features primarily Classic Country artists, has to our total delight been playing several NEW EARTH BAND selections, such as “He’s My Friend”, “My Lord and I”, and “Born Again”.

>>> The unique, rough-cut sound of The NEW EARTH BAND  has been broadcast by Northern Ireland Country Music station RadioStar Country, a “semi-pirate” (no offense intended!) station featuring Country and Gospel music from the USA, Canada, and Australia, reports contact person Elaine Clarke.

Stan Smith Witinski

Stanley L. Witinski  (08/05/1943  – 06/26/2016)

Our hearts remain heavy as we remember the passing of The NEW EARTH BAND bassist and beloved friend Stan Witinski.  Stan was not only a superb bassist, but he was also a fine pianist and organist, having played keyboards for many years with Bobby Newton & The Band.  Stan, whose father was an icon in motorcycle racing, had a long and well-traveled career in rock, pop, blues, and jazz, dating back to the late 1950′s, playing with more headliner bands than memory allows – including Rock’n’Roll pioneer Chuck Berry - ultimately joining The NEW EARTH BAND in 2010.  Pleasant, easy, and so agreeable, Stanley L. “Smith” Witinski was truly loved by all.  To say Stan will be sorely missed would constitute the understatement of the 21st Century.

WARREN  L. ”Mose” BOYER   (10/11/1927  -  09/13/2011)

  REMEMBERING   NEW EARTH BAND  fiddler and bassist Warren “Mose” Boyer.  A most earnest, courteous, respectful, kind, gentle man, and a true master musician, “The Moser” was one-of-a-kind,  irreplaceable indeed.  He will be missed by fellow  NEW EARTH BAND  members, as well as by the countless numbers of followers who loved “Mose” throughout his astounding, seven-decade-long, musical legacy.

  CRAIG  WESLEY  FISHER  (02/21/1938 – 09/21/2011)

The passing of a solid friend and music icon, “Mr. Entertainment”, Craig Wes Fisher, will forever leave a lingering, empty space in our hearts.  Well known and much loved  by all,  Craig leaves a gap that simply cannot be filled  until we are reunited once more at that great open-jam that will most assuredly follow The Marriage Feast of the Lamb!
