Happy Anniversary, ApX Rhythm Section
Fri., Oct. 18. 2019 4:35pm EDT
Happy anniversary to the ApologetiX section; our longtime bassist and drummer each originally joined us in the month of October. Now they have 38 combined years of experience with ApX.
Keith Haynie played his first official concert as our bassist on October 6, 1995, at The Place Community Youth Center in Weston WV.
Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner played his first concert as our drummer on October 29, 2005, at White River Christian Church in Noblesville IN.
Of course, Jimmy's also the audio engineer for our studio recordings. Since he and his wife, Eve, opened up Red Apple Audio Workshop in 2013, he's engineered about 300 songs for us! Wow!
Honorable mention to alum guitarist Tom Milnes, who played his first ApX show on October 17, 2008, at St. Stephen's Church in Sewickley PA.
You should be hearing more from Mr. Milnes in the not-too-distant future, Lord willing. In addition to being a pastor, Tom's a professional painter, so he has more time to record when the weather outside is frightful. We have some specific songs waiting for him, and the drums are already done.
