I had the opportunity to spend Saturday evening with my good friend, Donovan, and my new friend, Chelsea. Family Force 5, which happens to be Donovan’s and Chelsea’s favorite band, was playing in Dover, and they invited me to come along. Now, to be quite honest, my glory days of concert-going where I would drop some change, weasel my way through shoulder-to-shoulder sweaty people, and stand for several hours listening to loud music have mostly passed. Well, unless you’re talking about Trevor McNevan and Thousand Foot Krutch…that’s another story altogether. 🙂
Several weeks ago, my friend Mike asked me if our band wanted to play for his CD release show. So last Saturday, we played a rock show in Mansfield. It was probably the best show we’ve ever played. We even had people from Painesville come down to hear us! We must mean something if people would drive 1 hour and 45 minutes one way to listen to a 30 minute set.
Anyway, we played Here I Am, Much to Consider, Alone with Jesus,Take It or Leave It and Collision Course. But that’s not all! We ended our set with a tribute to the ‘90s. We played a medley of Big Mountain’s version of Baby I Love Your Way, Hanson’s Mmbop, Spin Doctors’ Two Princes, Eagle Eye Cherry’s Save Tonight, and ending on Deep Blue Something’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It was fun to watch people remember those old favorites and dance around and sing. We had a good crowd. If you weren’t there, you missed a good show. I’m going to try to get some of the video up on our mySpace at some point. Stay tuned.
Prayer requests: Mike moved to California (he texted and said he made it safely), Jevan’s cousin lost her husband, Jevan’s getting his butt kicked in school academically, and I’ve got a lot on my mind otherwise. If you have any requests you’d like me to pray for, shoot me an email.
