This Past Weekend in NY & PA
Wed., May. 25. 2011 12:52pm EDT
Two recent rounds of bus repairs held up well for last weekend's concerts in Brockport NY and Butler PA. Unfortunately, we blew a bus tire in Angola NY on the way to Friday's concert, but what's $600 compared to those other repairs, right? :)
We were still able to make it to the venue to play the concert, where the audience included a number of Canadian fans, which always makes for a good day, eh?
Saturday's show in Butler was a homecoming for our lead guitarist Tom Tincha, sound engineer, Greg Spack, and light guy Dan "Mr. Swiss" Uber. It was also a milestone for three of the guys, as Jimmy played his 550th show, Tinch played his 175th, and Todd played in his 10th state.
Here's an email excerpt from one of our promoters:
The concert Friday night was great! You guys sounded really good. The three new songs you played made me anxious for your new CD to come out. I think you will have some fan favorites on there. Here are some email/Facebook excerpts we received from fans in attendance:
A lot of people told me how much they enjoyed the concert. There were a lot of new people there that either had not heard of you or haven't seen you in concert so that was cool. They all want you back of course.
Todd is a perfect fit with you guys. He brings a lot of energy. I know you made some new fans. It just goes to show you, no matter what Satan does to deter people from hearing the good news, God uses you guys to prevail over that. It probably wasn't the best day starting out with the flat tire but in the end people were touched by your music. Thanks for blessing us with your talents!

I saw you guys perform last night in Brockport. You were absolutely fantastic and 'real.' Some Christian artists lose the fact that they're doing it for God and not their fans. Special thanks to:

I had a blast at the show and loved helping out the road crew! God bless.
You guys put on a great show at Brockport. I really enjoyed it

Thanks so much – really enjoyed the show on Saturday. God bless you guys and all you do. I was blown away by Todd's presence on stage as well as his testimony. You guys sound really awesome. God is using you guys in a mighty way. Keep up the good work!
