Family Attends 25th Show in 7 Years
Sat., May. 26. 2007 12:46pm EDT

We have seen our fans and friends the Hensley family many times over the years at concerts in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. Recently we asked them to tell us just how many times they've seen us. To paraphrase famed movie director Marty DiBurgi, "Well, we got that ... but we got much more." Here's what they sent us:

Over 2000 Miles a 300-Page Songbook, 25 Shows, 13 CD's, 7 Years, 3 Devoted Fans, and 1 Build the Bus T-Shirt later.

This Memorial Day weekend marked the seventh anniversary of our family coming to know the incredible ministry of the ApologetiX. In addition to being an anniversary it also was a major milestone of our 25th live show.

It all began on a small parking lot stage at Taste of Cincinnati and has been absolutely life altering for the three of us. Our son Bradley is now 11 and has grown up with ApologetiX as one of his primary musical influences. He has joined the band on stage several times, not to mention amassed a collection of Messner picks, Rieger and Tanner drum sticks and plenty of signed memorabilia.

The band puts on an awesome show. We have been blessed to have been a part of this worship experience 25 times. Each show is unique and holds a special place in our hearts. We have been able to take part in such things as the debut of Jimmy Tanner, Bill "Moose" Rieger reunion weekend and a Christian magician opening the show. Many of these shows have even been part of a birthday celebration for one of us. Our ApologetiX chronology is as follows: 327, 339, 371, 446, 496, 505, 518, 533, 579, 586, 629, 648?, 653, 692, 706, 732, 775, 786, 792, 793, 880, 893, 940, 952, 960

I work at a public university and regularly play ApologetiX in my office. On countless occasions clients and coworkers have been in my office and are either singing along (in their own special secular way) or just blurt out "Oh, I love this song". Usually at that point I say, "Wow, I love meeting other ApologetiX fans!" Typically the look of confusion on their face evolves into a powerful and mutually comfortable witnessing tool.

The ApologetiX have grown so much in the past seven years and 633 shows. We can't wait to see you when you hit 1,000.
