Koiné night at Culver’s in Jackson, WI. A portion of the sales that night will go to support Koiné Music Ministries. Plan to join us that night to listen to some music, hang out with the band, and enjoy some amazing frozen custard and Butterburgers! The flavor of the day will be Butterfinger Pecan!
August 23rd from 4-10pm
Koiné will also be playing live music outside from 5-9pm (weather permitting)
It’s nothing new in Christian music for traditional songs to be re-shaped by the influences of culture and time. But perhaps it’s the way Koiné is combining century-old hymns with a modern accompaniment that is causing people everywhere to take notice of what some in Milwaukee have known for years. Imagine a 1200 year old text and a 600 year old melody, married with a Les Paul, Steinway piano, drums and electric bass. With their arrangements, Koiné strives to find a unique balance between the familiarity of the classic hymn melodies and the raw instrumentation of the new arrangements.
Originally formed in 2003 as a worship band, Koiné quickly began to gain a grassroots following as requests for appearances and sales of their first album, Koiné (Self-Titled) started to roll in.
Since that time, local events turned into regional tours, and now Koiné travels the North America sharing their unique music ministry. Koiné has truly found a niche for themselves. Much of their music already has a welcome home in traditional worship, but with a modern sound that anyone can identify with.
Koiné is currently working on their 8th full-length album as well as a collection of Reformation Hymns for the 500 year anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation.
