This Past Weekend in OH & PA
Tue., Apr. 3. 2012 8:59am EDT
March went out like a lion this past weekend and the audiences roared with delight as we celebrated our 20th anniversary with concerts in Carrollton OH and Franklin PA.
Here's an ApologetiX first: J. sat in on drums for a song at our Franklin show, and Jimmy didn't even have to vacate his throne. Our energetic lead singer accidentally backed into our surprised drummer's kit during "Too Much Grime on My Hands," causing him to briefly change the words to "Too Much Drums on My Pants."
Here are some email/Facebook excerpts from fans in attendance:
I was at the show in Carrollton. It was a pleasure to meet you all. What a fun time. You were amazing.Special thanks to:
I saw you for the first time tonight in my home town of Carrollton and I was blown away. You all were amazing. God truly has blessed all you with talent and beyond. It was my daugter's idea to come and see you all, which is a blessing in itself because to get her to go to anything involving Christianity is a strugle.
When the keyboard player was giving his testimony brought me to tears, because my daughter has been in a wheelchair for about 12 years and has been on dialysis for 13 years and is in need of a kidney transplant.
I am always telling her God made her special for a reason, and He has great things for her, and when she was listening to your testimony, she really listened, and I am praying that she can realize that just because you have special situations you can still do anything you set your mind to.
Thank you for such a amazing night for my daughter and our friend we brought with us. God bless all of you and I will keep all of you in my prayers and your families.
You guys were awesome Friday in Carrollton. I had so much fun and I am hoping to go to another one of your concerts soon.
The concert was wonderful this weekend. Dad had a great time too he really likes you guys a lot. I loved the music choices made at the concert. A perfect blend of old and new songs.
