"Gifted, anointed, engaging and fun!! Words really aren't enough to describe how great this band is! You have to experience them to understand what I mean. Bob Stone – Young Adult Pastor – Liberty City Church"
"Shades of Skin is a very versatile band that appeals to the older and younger generations. The members of the band have a passion for creating a memorable experience for their audiences and they present this strongly through their music and stage presence." -Pastor Tim Rogers, R U Red E Ministries
"On Friday August 13th, Alton Bay Christian Conference Center had its largest crowd to date in our 2010 summer concert series featuring the high energy band Shades of Skin. I have to admit, it was difficult to take my eyes off the keyboard stomping; rafter swinging front man as he delivered a brilliant performance. Between their goofy on-stage antics and playfulness with the crowd... Shades of Skin knows how to have fun and put God in the center of it all. It was great to see the close knit family camaraderie on and off stage"
"Looking across the crowd of youth that were packed against the front of the stage, it was fascinating to observe Gods presence move and work among them. I'm so excited to see what God has in store for New England! I honestly believe that Shades of Skins' message is not only what this generation needs to hear, but it is what they are searching for… a band that seeks ultimate truth and knows how to rock!" – Pastor Jason Hughen, Alton Bay Christian Conference Center
