Shaffer Band is home based in the breath-taking mountains of Belington, West Virginia. The group consists of Dave Shaffer, his wife Trish, their daughter Cassie and her husband Mike Hymes. Dave plays keys & guitar, Cassie plays bass guitar & sax, and Mike plays drums. With their family harmony and unique blend of country and worship, they minister effectively to all ages.
Shaffer Band has sung locally for several years at churches, county fairs and festivals. Music has always played an active role in their lives since being a part of their home church praise team for several years. In the last 7 years they have stepped out to expand their ministry and to fulfill what God has called them to do. Since stepping out in faith to follow God’s call they have beyond doubt seen the hand of God at work in their ministry.
Shaffer Band has recorded six projects in the past ten years. Their latest project entitled “Grateful” is on Willow Creek Records Nashville and was produced by Terry Thompson and released in July 2012. Shaffer truly feels that this project defines them as artists! Shaffer Band just released their second single to radio from the album “Grateful” entitled “Love Can’t Walk Away” which feautres the powerful vocals of Cassie Shaffer Hymes and guest vocalist Adam Crabb.
In 2007 and 2008 Shaffer Band definitely experienced the faithfulness of God in their own personal lives. They encountered a difficult experience with Cassie’s health but none the less God has recently done a healing in her body giving her a powerful testimony that is reaching others. They feel this past year has been a turning point for their ministry realizing that through the trials they have faced it has brought them to a deeper relationship with God resulting in a more effective ministry. They recognize that it is even more important to spread the good news and hope of Jesus Christ to others because no one knows what their future holds.
Shaffer Bands wish is to carry out the plan that God has called them to do. It’s not about us but all about building the kingdom and seeing souls saved. One thing they desire is to lead people into the presence of God with the purpose of getting the attention off of them and getting people to put all of their focus on God. There’s no greater joy than to see people enter into worship, because that is when lives are changed, hearts are mended and people are set free!
They feel truly blessed to witness what God has been doing through and in their ministry. Their purpose is to see lives changed by the power of Christ through their music. One of their earlier songs “The Best Is Yet To Come” says it all… they believe greater things are yet to come for their ministry and for the body of Christ!
