This Past Weekend in VA
Tue., Jan. 26. 2010 3:59pm EST

We wanted to kick off our 2010 tour with something momentous, so we decided we'd play Woodstock. The original site -- Yasgur's Farm in New York -- was busy, so we settled for Woodstock VA, and that's where we played Friday night.

One thing didn't change from last year though; our bus got a flat tire at the hotel on Saturday, just like it did on our first Saturday touring in 2009. Last year, the repair team broke a power wrench trying to remove the flat tire; this year, they broke a power jack. It took about 2:30 in time and $229 in cash, but we got back on the road.

Thankfully, we had the spare tire already and just needed it changed. If we'd needed to buy a new tire, it would have cost hundreds more. But God provided for us, as He always does.

While we were in the commonwealth, we stopped in Fredericksburg VA for a Saturday-night show -- our third trip in four years to the land the locals call "FredVegas." Not to be outdone, we brought our own Jimmy "Vegas" Tanner along on drums.

Here's what the Woodstock promoter had to say in an email afterward:

Thank you for coming here. I enjoyed it. You are really talented! Thanks again, it was fun. I will contact you again, if I see you are in the area, or if you need to be in this area, contact us. Thanks.

Rhonda Dellinger
Woodstock VA
Here are some other nice emails we received afterward from fans:
My son and I attended your concert in Woodstock VA. We live in Fredericksburg but were not aware you would be there the next night. lol.

You are all doing amazing things for all age groups -- and doing it at a low price, I might add. I dont know how you could afford to do it for the price you do, so it must be God. Thank you so much for teaching the kids as well as the adults. You're truly a talented group.

Glad I could be there in Fredericksburg. I love the new album the band just released. It really rocks the house!

Darryl Bartle

Terrific Saturday night concert in Fredericksburg! You guys were great!

Not only was the music fantastic, but the dialogue and on-stage banter were really funny. Also, I loved the reaction of the lady near the front row when you did "Smooth Grandmama." I think she was almost scared out of her seat at first after the mellow intro, but she was laughing pretty hard after that!

In addition, I just wanted to let you know that your music/ministry has been a real blessing to me. May the Lord continue to use you to bless others. I will keep lifting you up in prayer.
