Jakarta Praise is a new adventure for Isaac Points, owner and leader of the Jakarta Band, Denver’s hottest old school funk and high energy dance band. In 2010 Isaac took his talents to a whole new level when he started performing gospel music at Park Hill United Methodist Church and New Hope Baptist Church both located in Denver. Through this experience he gained a renewed respect for the ‘funk’ that exist in today’s gospel music and decided to combine the talents of the Voices of Majestic Praise choir from New Hope Baptist Church, with the funky style of music his band has become famous for. The blending of voices and soulful funk music has produced an experience that once you hear it, you won’t be able to stop yourself from groovin’ to the beat in the name of the Lord!
