SAN ANTONIO (March 19, 2012) – Five Christian music artists will perform at SeaWorld San Antonio’s fifth annual Praise Wave concert series, scheduled for March 31 and April 7. This spiritually moving concert series features performances by well-known Christian artists. All concerts will be held at SeaWorld's Nautilus Amphitheater. This year’s Praise Wave will feature award-winning headliners – Kutless on Saturday, March 31 and Jeremy Camp on Saturday, April 7.

Kutless, a Christian alternative band specializing in melodic hard rock, released their self-titled debut on BEC Recordings in 2002. The group, which consists of James Mead (guitar), Nathan "Stu" Stewart (bass), Kyle Mitchell (drums), Ryan Shrout (guitar), and Jon Micah Sumrall (vocals), came together in Portland, Oregon in 1999, inspired by such Christian rock predecessors as the Supertones as well as mainstream modern rockers like Staind, Creed, and Incubus.

One of the leading artists on the contemporary Christian scene, Jeremy Camp, has gained a sizable fan following for his passionate, well-crafted rock songs and heartfelt testimonies of faith in spite of life's obstacles. Camp attended Bible college in Southern California and developed a keen interest in music, influenced by the likes of U2, Jars of Clay, Delirious? and Creed.

All Praise Wave performances are included with park admission, and concert attendees are encouraged to arrive early to get a concert wristband, valid for the entire day of the concerts. Since seating is limited on a first-come, first-served basis, guests are required to pick up a wristband near Nautilus Amphitheater on the day of the concert.  Concert times are subject to change.

Guests have the option to purchase a special VIP package which includes a wristband for reserved seating in the VIP section and a meal voucher at a participating restaurant.  VIP wristbands are valid for the entire day of the event. All members of a party must be present when picking up VIP wristbands.
