J. Jackson, lead singer and lyricist for ApologetiX here again:
I received this message Monday morning from ApX fan Jim Strong of Carol Stream IL in regard to a big two-day Christian rock festival this past weekend in Western Ohio, 10 miles from the Indiana border:
"A whole lot of love for ApologetiX at Immortal Fest [at the BMI Event Center] in Versailles OH. Playing a lot of your videos on the big screens between bands!!!"
As I told him, "Wow, Jim, you are the fourth person to tell me that! Sounds like a lot of ApologetiX fans were there, so I guess they picked the right music for in between."
A fifth fan has since told me the same thing. For the record, those other fans were Tim Chaffey, Ed Macke, Michael Eshom, and Daryl White.
As I told my wife, I'm as impressed by the fact that we had at least five fans at that event as I am that the event organizers played our songs and videos between the performances.
Featured artists at the event included Whitecross, Glenn Kaiser, Theocracy, Disciple, Deliverance, One Bad Pig, Sacred Warrior, Les Carlsen (of Bloodgood), Saint, X-Sinner, and The Daniel Band, plus many others
The line-up reads like a who's who of Keith Haynie favorites. In fact, our beloved bassist and I talked about that festival many months ago because so many artists he likes were on the roster.
