This Past Weekend in WV & OH
Tue., Sep. 14. 2010 9:52am EDT
This past Friday's concert in Grafton WV was drummer Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner's 500th concert with ApologetiX. Enthusiastic crowds in Grafton and the next night in Newark OH kept him from getting the 501 Blues.
Here's a nice email we received afterward from one of our concert coordinators:
Thanks for the opportunity to host the concert. Our congregation is still buzzing from the show this morning. We will keep you and your ministry in our prayers and look forward to seeing ApologetiX again soon!Here are some email excerpts we received from fans afterward:
Wade Kirk, Youth Pastor
Vineyard of Licking County
Thank you so much for coming -- the whole family enjoyed it! Hope to see you again soon.Special thanks to:
Randi and I really enjoyed the concert and visiting with the band in WV. We appreciate all of the time and effort that you guys put into this ministry. Many moons ago our son Caleb said "Hey, Dad, you need to listen to this" then he played "Not Logs Lincoln," so that was the first ApologetiX song I ever heard and now I have heard it live:)
