Carmine Appice, known for his years of performing with Vanilla Fudge, Ted Nugent, Jeff Beck and Cactus, named one of the top drummers of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine, has turned his musical gifts toward writing songs of faith.

Appice, who co-wrote radio mainstay “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” with Rod Stewart, is spending his time these days listening to passages from the bible, attending church and composing and performing songs about faith, grace, and heavenly guidance.

Three of his songs will be heard in the new faith-based feature film, The Thursday Night Club, based on the novella and podcast by best-selling author Steven Manchester. The Thursday Night Club is about five college friends who meet an inspirational man who will change their lives forever. Each character learns that they will see signs from God that will guide them to give back to others and to live a charitable life.

Appice experienced his own epiphany from the grace of God and the power of Jesus Christ in 2018 when on tour in Europe. He had a medical emergency that landed him in a small hospital in the Azores. Alone, with no one speaking his language and no specialist on staff, Appice believed he was dying.

Carmine explained “after being knocked out with medicine, I woke up in a black room with one single light. I thought I had died. I clutched the cross that was around my neck and prayed for Jesus to help me.” 

After he recovered, he believed he was touched by the hand of God and vowed to continue this new and profound relationship. Carmine formed a band of like-minded musicians and started to write and perform songs in this genre, in addition to touring with his band and recording other projects.

The Thursday Night Club stars another icon from the music world. Grammy winner Gloria Gaynor (“I Will Survive”), a woman of deep faith won her second Grammy in 2020 for Best Roots Gospel album.

The producers of The Thursday Night Club are also offering a companion workbook based on the principles of the film for churches and other institutions of faith to use as an educational tool.
