This Past Weekend in IN & OH
Wed., Mar. 28. 2012 10:20pm EDT
Our concerts this past weekend in Rensselaer IN and Mount Vernon OH were our 60th in the Hoosier State and our 115th in the Buckeye State.
We'd actually played in Mount Vernon once before, in 2009. After Saturday's show, we couldn't wait another three years to return, so much we drove back into town an hour later. Actually, we didn't have our normal GPS with us, so we had to use Keith's iPhone to reroute our trip home and wound up on a bunch of back roads that led us straight back to where we started.
We may be back soon to Rensselaer, too. The concert coordinator has already expressed an interest in our return, and the senior pastor of the host church told us he'd never had an event before at his church that had such unanimous positive response.
Here's a nice comment from a fan in attendance on Saturday:
Great show in Mt. Vernon. You professionally handled the rough start (when the power went out twice). I guess all the van problems have prepared you for things that don't always go right. My prayers are with you and your band and more importantly your mission.Special thanks to:
Our concert coordinators: Rein Bontreger (Rensselaer) and Ruben Clark (Mount Vernon)
Our merchandise coordinators: Angie, Rachel, and Taylor (Rensselaer) and Mariah, Lauren, Alexa and Rachel (Mount Vernon)
Our roadie: Rich (Mount Vernon)
