Our belief systems influence everything we do. You can’t separate art, God, philosophy, beliefs, politics and lifestyle. Religion, philosophy, entertainment and belief systems are inseparable. Today more than ever, people’s belief systems are programmed by the entertainment machine – all the singers, writers, actors are preaching their message. Even preachers and politicians “put on a show” to persuade their listeners. Music shapes culture. Because of the cultural revolution of the 60’s and 70’s which was led by musicians, we have a rock’n’roll culture today. All day, people are bombarded by media’s influence – TV, Movies, Music, News bias, Smartphones, Billboards.. The minds of the world are programmed by the entertainment machine, rock stars and political sound bytes, all with agendas and ulterior motives. Let your band influence the masses! Come to The Door and make your mark on history.
