Last Weekend in PA & VA
Fri., Oct. 11. 2013 9:27am EDT
Washington DC may have been shut down last weekend, but our Saturday concert in nearby Gainesville VA wasn't … neither was our Friday show in Saltsburg PA.
Three alumni drummers were in attendance in Saltsburg. We knew that Bob Flaherty and Bill Rieger would be there, because they are the pastor and worship leader, respectively, of that church. But original ApologetiX drummer Jeff Pakula surprised us and came, too.
The pastor at in Gainesville was from J.'s hometown, Greensburg PA. And one of the church's volunteer roadies went to his alma mater, Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP). J.'s sister Gayle also came to the concert. But the kindness and hospitality everybody in Gainesville displayed made all of us feel at home, not just J.
