This Past Weekend in PA, VA & MD
Tue., Apr. 21. 2009 8:41am EDT

You know you've finally made it as a Christian parody band when Robin Williams volunteers to work at your merchandise table. And she was just one of the many great volunteers at our concerts this past weekend in West Chester PA, Front Royal VA, and Hagerstown MD.

Robin wasn't the only factor giving the weekend a cinematic feel. There were also the stunts performed by the Boarders For Christ skateboarding team Friday, the video crew who did such a splendid job filming our concert Saturday, and the 20 minutes our bus was stuck on the train tracks Sunday, calling to mind "The Perils of Pauline," or should we say, "The Perils of 'PologetiX"?

Here are some great emails we've received from fans at the shows:

I have seen you guys 12 times (my first show was February 3, 2006) and the boys have seen you 10 times. What a show in West Chester, PA! ApologetiX rocked, Boarders for Christ rolled, and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was praised! My boys and I enjoyed the Tom squared (Tom Milnes and Tom Tincha) attack. Those fellows can play guitar! We also loved the new opening song, "Strangest Folks" -- hope to hear that again and hope to see you guys again soon.

Saw you guys in Hagerstown MD and am now officially a "fan" and can't wait to see you all again. The show was absolutely amazing and much more than I had anticipated. It had been years since I have been to a concert and wasn't expecting anything fantastic, but I was pleasantly surprised! Thanks for doing what you're doing for our Lord and Savior and for bringing such a wonderful message through your music.

Rhonda Durst

Hope you had a safe trip home last night after the concert in Hagerstown. Wow, two great new guitarists! Adds a whole new dimension to the show. Quite a story by Nathan.

Bob Boehner

Saw you in Hagerstown last night and just want to say thank you for your ministry. So many old rock and roll songs are from the bad times in my life before I knew Jesus, and I just don't want to hear them anymore. Thanks to your lyrics and band, I can really enjoy them again and feel uplifted instead of ashamed.

Also, I have a 12-year old son who once told me that the song "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" was his song, because he felt so lonely and friendless. I tried to never let it be heard again in our house so it wouldn't validate his feelings of isolation and depression. When you played it last night with great Christ-centered lyrics we both were uplifted and encouraged. Thank you. We bought the CD.

My 24-year-old son with the Buffalo Bills hat who sang on stage with you and two of his friends we brought along also really enjoyed your concert. We were all really touched by the young man who shared his testimony during your break. Wow. What amazing grace. Thank you so much for blessing us with your concert last night.

Special thanks to:

Our concert coordinators: Pastor Garrett Herdter (West Chester); Pastor Lee Montgomery and Robert Clark (Front Royal); and Jeff Sheasley (Hagerstown), age 16, who became one of our youngest promoters ever.

Our merchandise coordinators: Jenn, Deb, Nikki, and Gordon (West Chester); Robin, Kristy, and Elaina (Front Royal); and Sean, Sarah, and Andrew a.k.a. Jeter (Hagerstown).

Our roadies: Nathan (West Chester, Front Royal, and Hagerstown) and Rich (Front Royal and Hagerstown).

Our guest speakers: Dana "DJ Clint" Brown (Front Royal) and Nathan Jones (Hagerstown).

Our bus driver: Canada's own Dave "Ripper" Rippon, who made his seventh trip down from Ontario as our bus driver. Although he's only been driving our bus in the past two years, Dave's first ApologetiX concert 10 years ago at Kingdom Bound in August 1999.

Honorable mention to:

Jenn "The Superchick" Kipp, who celebrated the 10th fan-iversary of her first ApologetiX concert at Friday in West Chester. Her first ApologetiX concert was exactly a decade earlier, also on a Friday, in Elizabethtown PA. She has now seen us a total of 92 times, and has been a huge help to us over the years as a volunteer with our merchandise table, a proofreader, and an encourager.
