Constitution & Nineth live at Broad Street Grind
The band “Constitution & Ninth” was formed in 2016 when friends Ian Browne, Dan Harney, and Kamin Personett went to a Carrollton / Andrew Peterson concert. All three friends were musicians that shared a passion for skillful, poetic and spiritually/heartfelt songwriting.
In the weeks following the concert, the thought occurred to each one of them that it would be an exciting venture to collaborate on a musical project together. Both Ian and Dan were local worship leaders and Kamin served as the drummer alongside Ian. Dan had been writing songs off and on for the last 20 years and suggested that the 3 of them meet up and see how they all would sound together on some of his songs
Dan recalls “as soon as I saw Ian unpacking an accordion from his van, I knew we were heading in the right direction!”. The 3 quickly fell into sync on the songs and the decision was made (with their wives’ approval!) to begin working further on these songs and make an attempt to form a band.
At that point “C&9” still lacked a bassist, but Dan had already begun considering his friend Jordan who played bass with him on the worship team at his church. Jordan graciously agreed to join them for their 2nd official rehearsal and immediately earned the votes of the other band members to come on board permanently.
The band desires to produce music that is honoring to God and is centered in the redemptive story of the Gospel. Their style could probably be best described as Christian folk rock, but really they’re just 4 guys that love Jesus, their families, and as much accordion-infused, acoustic-rock that one can tolerate. They can’t wait to introduce their music to you!
