Oregon but Not Forgotten
Fri., Apr. 27. 2018 3:35pm EDT

We've always enjoyed playing in Oregon (eight times so far), but our first trip was hard to top -- a huge concert in an outdoor park in Roseburg on August 3, 2003, with a great audience. There are some cool photos of that at http://www.apologetix.com/concerts/concerts-past-photos.php.

Here's a nice email we received this week from someone who was there and whose family are still big fans:

My husband loves your music, and you changed his life as far as Christian music was concerned! Yesterday we were talking about what he would really like for his birthday, and he said, "I would love more ApologetiX CDs!"

He has several of your older CDs. When we are in the car, that is all we listen to, and your music has brought much attention to people that drive in the car with us.

We saw you once when you came to Roseburg OR, and he met the band, and he was so thrilled. We were supposed to go camping that night. But when Bob found out that you were going to be in Roseburg, it was a must-see concert! We made it to the campground about midnight, but that is one of Bob's most-favorite memories.

He truly loves your music, your testimony, and your purpose for your music. It's funny -- there are certain things in life that we do that we totally forget about and then there are things that we do in life and we never forget. Your concert in the park in Roseburg is one of those things we will never forget and have fond memories of.

You even let our son go backstage, and I think the drummer even gave him his drumsticks. Back then, our son was totally into drumming and skateboarding; now he is almost finished getting his doctorate degree in pharmaceutical. Those were the good old days.

Our son is 27 and will be married the end of June to the love of his life. Our daughter is almost 31. Both are strong Christians, and they to love your music! You all have been such a true blessing to us.

Thanks, Kelly! We're honored! Despite the pun in the headline, we know that's not the way Oregonians pronounce their state's name. As Google will tell you, "there is no 'gone' in Oregon. The correct pronunciation of Oregon is similar to pronouncing the two words 'aura' and 'gun' together, although the 'u' in gun is a bit shorter than that." But we couldn't resist. Hopefully it'll at least amuse folks outside the Pacific Northwest.
