“They’re fairly new. They’re just now starting to get a nationwide appeal,” said the Rev. Randy Brown, associate pastor of students and families at Temple Baptist Church.

The group, whose sound somewhat resembles that of Coldplay or U2, is based in Manhattan, Kansas. Lance Stafford plays piano and sings, his brother Layne Stafford plays bass, Josh Svorinic plays guitar, and Kirby LeMoine is on drums.

Cloverton’s latest album, “Patterns,” was released in 2013, and the group will be performing at many Christian music festivals over the summer this year.

“They have a big college following … we thought it would be nice to do something for the college students,” Brown said.

What distinguishes Cloverton from similar groups outside the Christian genre, he said, is that those groups often sing about issues and challenges life presents — but don’t offer solutions. Songsmiths in the Christian genre do give answers.

“Most of (Cloverton’s) music has a positive, upbeat theme,” Brown said. “‘Patterns’ is looking at breaking some of the patterns going on in the world.”

Tickets are available at Temple Baptist before and on the day of the show, as well as at www.itickets .com.

In advance, tickets are $10 for students or for those in a group of 15 or more people, and $12 for others. On the day of the show, tickets can be purchased at the door for $15.

Everyone is invited to the Cloverton-led Sunday worship service at 10:30 a.m. at Temple Baptist, which is at 1200 12th Ave. NE.
