    PAX 217 was a Christian rap/punk/reggae band from Orange County, California comprised of Dave Tosti (vocals), Jesse Craig (guitar), Josh Auer (bass, vocals), and Aaron "Skwid" Tosti (drums) (now in Hawk Nelson). The band's music was well known in the underground Christian scene at the time for its unique sound and optimistic, fun-filled lyrics. In addition, the band's fervor for God was obvious. Most Warriors acquainted with Christian rock music are also fans of the band.

    PAX 217 was similar in sound to Skindred (but less hardcore and more nu metal), and Christian rock peers Earthsuit and P.O.D. Falling Up's super-collaboration "Jacksonfive" from Crashings are often compared to the band. PAX 217, whose name is derived from the Latin word for "peace," released two albums: Twoseventeen (2000) and Engage (2002), and was signed to Forefront Records. They also released an EP titled Check Your Pulse in 2004 independently. The band was often compared to Limp Bizkit, while Dave Tosti's rapping was compared to that of fellow Christian rocker Sonny Sandoval.

    Former members include "Tito" on keyboards, Bobby "Bobbito the Chef" Duran as disc jockey, Ethan Luck on the guitar, and Dan Sessum on guitar.

    The band members (except David Tosti) went on to form the pop punk band Avner
