Carman returning to The Poncan Theatre May 19 with The Martins

Ponca City Now - May 9, 2018 11:27 am

Carman is returning to The Poncan Theatre with The Martins at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 19.

Carman Domenic Licciardello is an enigma in Christian music, often described as part evangelist, part Vegas showman.

There’s no way you can classify a Carman song by its style, but rather by the shear blunt-force impact delivery in a person’s life, with an unmistakable Gospel message.

If there is any original trademark to Carman’s repertoire, it is what could only be identified as a ‘story song.’ A combination of drama, rock, comedy, funk, satire, acting, singing, and preaching, all woven together by an unpredictable wit that can only be described as a full length feature film in 7 minutes.

Among the greatest of Carman’s contributions to Christianity at the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century is his bringing back a full force, worship revival – not just through song and music but also through dance and drama. Carman’s presentations, done with excellence to large audiences, revolutionized the arts and Christian music. Carman has brought much-needed encouragement to the arts in church though the introduction of both male and female dancers, drama and simultaneous video and life presentations on stage to unusually large audiences.

Today Carman has developed an original concept for ministry to a new generation called “Carman: For Real-For Now” which he is currently touring.

No matter what Carman does, it will be different, never seen before and unusually original.
