Biography

Audio Adrenaline was a Christian rock band formed in the early 1990s at Kentucky Christian College in Grayson, Kentucky, USA. Along with DC Talk, Newsboys, and Jars of Clay, they quickly became one of the most successful Christian pop/rock bands of the 90s. They are best known for their 1993 hit “Big House,” and were a main attraction at the annual Creation Festival, Spirit West Coast festival, and Agape Music Festival. Audio Adrenaline was also a staple at the Alive Music Festival where it taped its live concert DVD “Worldwide.”

The band’s big break would come in the form of Bob Herdman. Bob went up to Audio Adrenaline with two songs he had written, “My God” and “DC-10”. After “My God” was recorded – under the band name Herdman had created, “Audio Adrenaline” – it was sent to radio stations and scaled the charts quickly.
Audio Adrenaline, after over 10 years as a band, decided to call it quits. The reason given was that lead vocalist, Mark Stuart, was having “ongoing vocal challenges”.

During the Mabee Center’s 40th Anniversary celebration on October 20, 2012, Audio Adrenaline performed their first concert after a decision to reform the band without the front man Mark Stuart. Kevin Max, former member of DC Talk, took on the role of lead singer.
