Canada's Christian punk-pop sensation, Hawk Nelson, will headline another great evening of fellowship and baseball on June 23 at Dunn Tire Park.

Faith Night, presented by Houghton College, returns to the home of the Buffalo Bisons. Get here early at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 23 and enjoy the pre-game concert by Hawk Nelson and an appearance by the VeggieTales. Then stay as the Bisons take on the Norfolk Tides with a 7:05 p.m. first pitch.

The first 4,000 fans to enter through the Swan St. Gate will also receive a Bisons' Batting Helmet. Tickets are just $15 and include the concert and the game.

Hawk Nelson, from Peterborough, Ontario, is made up of vocalist Jason Dunn, guitarist Jonathan Steingard, Daniel Brio on bass and drummer Aaron Tosti. A few years ago, they all working simple jobs to pay the bills and dreaming of the musical success to come.

Having released their debut album, Letters to the President, only a little less than two years ago, their album has sold over 100,000 copies. They have made appearances on NBC television series "American Dreams" and the remake of the 1968 film "Yours, Mine & Ours." Their music has also played on "Smallville," "Summerland" and the Summer 2004 Olympic commercials.

Goldfinger, The All-American Rejects, Sum 41 and Green Day are some of the bands that Hawk Nelson drew inspiration from while working on their second album, Smile, It's The End Of The World. Although the title sounds pessimistic, the band looks at their new album as a "positive response to a negative world." After being released on April 4, 2006, their first single from the new album locked in at #1 for nine weeks on the R&R Christian CHR chart.
