This Past Weekend in Pittsburgh PA
Mon., Aug. 14. 2006 6:08pm EDT

It was indeed sweet to be home this past weekend in West Mifflin PA (Friday), North Apollo (Saturday), and Latrobe (Sunday). ApologetiX alumnus Bob Flaherty, who played drums for us from 1995-98 and also ran sound for us from 2002-03, even came home from North Carolina and sat in with us for a song Saturday.

As usual, we had an impressive supporting cast at each show. First and foremost, we have to thank the crew that brought our newly repaired band van and our old trailer back to us: Brandon Gross, Evan Gross, Tim Colford, Rick Bodenhagen, Randy Reason, and Rein Bontreger. We've detailed their exploits in a special article titled "The Best of Van Ailin'" elsewhere in this issue.

Honorable mention to:

The amazing Leasure family (Derek, Brandi, Jenna, and Caleb) were in attendance for all three concerts and have now been to at least one ApologetiX concert for eight straight weeks! That's got to be some kind of record, but we'd have to double check with their fellow Ohio native Beth Davis to make sure. Beth, who also attended all three concerts this past weekend, holds the all-time record for concerts attended by a fan who is not a blood relation (84 concerts in 18 states!)

Thanks to:

Our concert coordinators: Melissa Kelly, Geneva College, and WORD-FM (West Mifflin); Dave Shick (North Apollo); and Dawn Wright and Living Stones (Latrobe).

Our merchandise coordinators: Marie (West Mifflin, North Apollo, and Latrobe); Heidi (West Mifflin and Latrobe), Brandon (North Apollo and Latrobe); Krista and Brandi (West Mifflin); Larry and Ron (North Apollo); and Diane, Heidi, Sarah, Julie, Abby, Adam, Abbey, and Leah (Latrobe).

Our radio support: John and Stephanie at WORD-FM.

Our roadies: Rich (West Mifflin, North Apollo, and Latrobe), Larry (North Apollo and Latrobe) and Greg (West Mifflin and Latrobe).

Our opening bands: Aaron Greer Band (Friday), Among the Thirsty (Friday and Saturday), the Silver Halos and Shudder (Saturday),

Among the Thirsty will also be playing with us next weekend in Pecatonica IL and the following weekend in Great Falls MT. Based out of Florida, they're nice guys and really good musicians. You can check out their website at: http://www.amongthethirsty.com.
