Huntington, Ind.—Emmanuel Community Church is hosting a free concert featuring rock band Attaboy and indie-rock newcomer The Fabulous at 7 p.m. on Dec 5.

The church is located at 12222 U.S. Highway 24 West in Fort Wayne.

The Fabulous, a Grand Rapids-based band, is made up of Michigan residents: A.J. Van Boxel with lead vocals, guitar and piano; Alex Ribbens on vocals and bass; Jeff Rubleski on keyboard and Ben Downer on drums.

Amos Caley, also a 2005 alumnus, has a bachelor’s degree in Bible and religion. Guitarist Jeff Edgel majored in elementary education and graduated in 2004.
