This Past Weekend in Chicago IL & Omaha NE
Wed., Oct. 28. 2009 12:26pm EDT
We put another 1800 miles on the bus this past weekend with concerts in Chicago (Brookfield) IL and Omaha (Bellevue) NE. We usually play Chicago at least once a year, and we've played Illinios more than 30 times, but it was our first trip to the Cornhusker State since 2005.
Here are some nice emails we received afterward from Saturday's concert promoter and fans who attended:
I wanted to thank you and the band for the great concert on Saturday. People are still talking about it. Again, thank you and may the Lord continue to bless the band.Special thanks to:
Pastor Dean Ross
My daughter and I both had a blast at your concert in Bellevue. Can't wait till next year!
You are a great showman and a wonderful example of Christ in the public eye. You, and the band, have great talent, as I have known since purchasing my first CD.
Our concert coordinators: Pastor Gary Karwoski (Brookfield) and Pastor Dean Ross (Bellevue).
