Our Story

288 is a contemporary, rockin’ Christian band hailing from the great state of New Jersey. Often asked, “What does 288 mean?” Well…we’ll tell you. The name, 288, comes directly from the bible. 1 Chronicles 25:7 reads, “Along with their relatives—all of them trained and skilled in music for the LORD—they numbered 288.” So, in essence, these 288 musicians were God’s first worship band!

The band’s sound is unique and has been compared to Three Doors Down, Hootie and the Blowfish, Third Day, and Daughtry. The band members themselves have a vast array of influences including the hard rock and pop music of the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, as well as many of the current Christian contemporary and hard rock artists.

In March, 2011, the band proudly released their first CD, entitled ‘Never Too Late”. Their sophomore release, "He's Enough", was recently released on CDBaby, iTunes and on CD. Baz has also started work on his first solo project, with three new songs expected to be finished by January 2016. The band is looking forward to an active live show schedule for 2016.
