Free concert Sunday at First Baptist

DOWNEY – Singer and songwriter Macain Treat, a graduate of Downey High School, will perform with his band Tenth and California in a free concert this Sunday at First Baptist Church of Downey. The group takes its name from an intersection in Santa Monica, where as a worship pastor for Trinity Church, Macain forged relationships with talented musicians.

Their new album, “Angels Singing in the Dark,” marks their first recording collaboration.

The band collectively has recorded or toured with such legendary artists as Roger Daltrey, Barbra Streisand, Quincy Jones, PINK, and Ray Charles to name a few.

“The most wonderful thing about working with such talented musicians,” Macain explains, “is being able to throw anything at the musicians on the stage or in the studio and know they can pull it off.”

Downey Arts Coalition president Andrew Wahlquist helped arrange the concert, because of his mission to bring talented people from Downey back home to perform for the community.

“I grew up with a tradition of contemporary worship music, a style that Macain brilliantly dubs Americana Gospel,” Wahlquist said. “It’s fun to see someone you’ve known since high school develop his talent over the years and take the time to share it with us.”

The concert begins at 6:30 p.m. The band’s music can be previewed at their website or YouTube page,
