Last Wkd in Jacksonville, Green Bay and Milwaukee
Sun., Aug. 14. 2005 11:51pm EDT

We had a fine time this past weekend in Lake City FL (near Jacksonville), Porterfield WI (near Green Bay), and Hartland WI (near Milwaukee). Wish you were there!

FRIDAY
Thanks to Ken Perkins, the youth pastor at First Baptist Church of Lake City, for having us headline at the Back to School Bash, along with opening bands Rhino and Burning Bridges. Ken spent the day with us and has a powerful testimony. He was also a lot of fun, bringing a genuine "Smooth Grandmama" from the church on stage to join us when we played that song. But what else would you expect from a church where the senior pastor preceded us non stage in a skit wearing a blue cowboy outfit complete with lasso, lip-synching to "YMCA"? Special thanks to Wanda Rose Bush, seamstress for the band, for making J. those incredible Rex Kwon Do pants and bandana and for supervising our CD table with our mutual friend Debbie Dawson.

SATURDAY
Thanks to Dr. Mark, Evan at WRGX, and Dave the Chauffeur for taking care of us at Powerfest in Porterfield. Thanks also to Alisa and Bug for running our CD table so efficiently. We even got to toss a football around for a while before the concert. (Sorry about your ear, Pammy!) It was nice to see Jeff Deyo (former lead singer of Sonic Flood) and his band for the umpteenth time, too. As Jeff said from the stage, "I feel like we've been on tour with ApologetiX this year; we've played so many of the same festivals." We also rode the same plane from Detroit to Green Bay with Jeff and his band, and with Joy Williams, who was also playing Powerfest.

SUNDAY
Thanks to Mark Bronner for coordinating our "Apol-acoustiX" afternoon show in Hartland in just a little over a week's time. Strange as it may seem for a guy who teaches calculus for a living, Mark was a great guy to work with and provided plenty of laughs ... and soap. (His grandfather was Dr. Bronner of the famous Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap.) J. and Karl dug deep into the vaults for a number of the songs on the set list, including rarely played (at least in the last decade) chestnuts such as "The Second Half of Acts," "Never Been to Spain Yet (Paul's Missionary Journeys)," "Ain't That a Miracle," "Isaac Man," "Bad Dude Risin'," and "Not Logs Lincoln."

Double thanks to our pals, Chris Christopherson and her son, Alex (a.k.a. Felix), and Pamela Mathey, who acted as chauffeurs, roadies, and camera operators for both the Saturday and Sunday concerts.
