Something Old, Something New in Old New England

We got lots of great emails from our recent New England appearance at SoulFest '06 but this one from Jerry Lord struck a chord ;)
GOD bless you all! I saw you at SoulFest '06 and was just amazed at your flexibility in musicianship. I had just walked over from Jars of Clay after listening to some oldies from them. Then when they went to a louder, newer sound, my wife and I thought we'd had enough, not to slam them, but hey I guess, I'm an old fogie .
On the way, someone said, "Hey, ApologetiX is on another stage, want to go?" I did and was I glad. The replaying of the older songs, "Devil Went Down To Georgia", etc. brought me back to my younger years and made me think how wonderful GOD is in how far HE has brought me from! It was like a healing process occurred from my past.
Normally the songs of the 70's can bring up some not-so-good memories, but with the powerful lyrics of your band playing those older tunes, something happened that was neat! Tears come to my eyes as I write this. Thanks for your ministry. Stay true to the call GOD has on you all!
