We made like Grand Funk Railroad ('We're in a Parody Band," after all) this past weekend with two concerts "Closer to Home," in Grafton WV and Ambridge PA.
Here are some email excerpts from our concert coordinators:
Thanks once again for fitting us into your schedule. We had a great time last Saturday night. I feel like Saturday was a very positive experience for us and I'd like to build on it to get a bigger crowd for you guys next time. Here are some email/Facebook excerpts from fans in attendance:
Real Life Christian Church
Greatly enjoyed the show on Saturday. It was also nice to see you walking around, holding your youngest child. At the end of the day, it is about the love that we show our kids. You impressed me even more by doing that.Special thanks to:
God has blessed you with a wonderful talent and you certainly use it for his Glory. It is a shame that so many other talented musicians and song writers can not say the same. Oh well, we can pray for them.
Really enjoyed your show in Ambridge! Always a good show, especially because you are praising the Lord and giving Him the Glory. God bless each one of you and your families as you continue to serve Him.
