This Past Weekend in OH & MI
Tue., Apr. 13. 2010 2:43pm EDT
Lions and Tigers and Browns, OH MI! With concerts so close to Cleveland and Detroit this past weekend, it's no wonder the weekend Wizzed by.
We played Friday in Medina OH (near Akron and Cleveland), Saturday in Saline MI (near Ann Arbor and Detroit) and Sunday in Oregon OH (near Toledo).
Here are some email comments we received later from our concert coordinators:
It was a pleasure. I am amazed at how great you guys are sounding and what a wonderful ministry you have. Here's some more email from fans at Friday's show:

I really enjoyed Friday night's concert. I really got to see how much you love the Lord and was glad you could use your talent of music to spread the Gospel. I really enjoyed meeting you after the show. I was the one who bought the CD a the thrift store (earlier that day). I hope to see you again when you get back to this area. Thanks again for a good show. Special thanks to:
Awesome concert. Great seeing you. You sang another one of my very favorites, "Hurry Home, Wayward Son." Take care and God bless.
