This Past Weekend in VA & OH
Sun., Feb. 4. 2007 2:19pm EST
The cold climate couldn't keep the crowds from our concerts this past weekend in McGaheysville VA and Vermilion OH. Our ample appreciative audiences took the "Brrr" and turned it into "Brrravo!"
Here's a comment from Bruce Benning of Cleveland OH, who attended Saturday's show:
I just wanted to let you know that ApologetiX really warmed us up Saturday night, in spite of the bitter cold temperatures. Your new sound system had a clear difference and was worth the investment. Thanks!!
I also appreciated how you fit your teaching into the program, to remind the crowd that the evening wasn't just about music, but the songs all had a point, and we needed to take the time to consider that point. Believers and non-believers alike need to be reminded every day of the message of the gospel. Otherwise we begin to think it is all about us, and what we do or don't do. We start to sink into the lake when we take our eyes off Christ.
You proved once again that ApologetiX can play just about any song they have on CD. I liked a lot of the new stuff, especially "Won't get Born Again". And naturally, the classic, "Walk on the Water".
You guys were your humble selves after the concert, and it was a pleasure talking with everyone. You are a class act, and a great blessing every time I make it out to a show. I look forward to seeing you next time!
Here's what the Vermilion concert promoter, Les Carrender, wrote in a follow-up email:
Thanks again! We had a blast and would love to host again in the future.
