So, Ash Wednesday came and went. (As did the ashes that some people got on their foreheads.) And we did as most folks do after Ash Wednesday, and headed for Pigeon Forge, TN. Our hotel had a Krispy Kreme AND a KFC in the parking lot, so we knew we were in the right place alrighty! Played a fun gig with the locals, and then Sunday night headed up to Knoxville, where we played our little concert, then raced back to the hotel to watch someone we know and love receive his first Oscar. A thrilling finish to a great weekend!
From there, Michael headed home, and I popped over to the World's Capital to take in a little conference on Architecture and Worship. With March marching along, it was time to head to Oklahoma, where we haven't been in a long while. Played a really fun gig, with lots of people in attendance, then headed back to Michigan so we could begin Lutheran Schools Week with 3,500 middle school students in Saginaw. Now THAT was fun! In the afternoon, we played the local Lutheran High School in town, and then headed back to my house in Ohio.
Then, we spent a couple days hatching our new plan, which I'll tell you about in a minute. At the end of the week, we drove south to Columbus, where we played for the Ohio District Lutherans, and the weekend's speaker was out old pal, Famous Actor Justin Vetrano. Had a fantastic weekend, and then headed back home, where I dished out corned beef on St. Patrick's Day, and Michael took in a little Los Angeles Marathon activity.
And, as promised, here's our new big idea:
Starting the day after Palm Sunday, which you obviously know is April 1st (no kidding), we will begin posting videos every Monday on our new Youtube channel. If you go there now (go ahead, I'll wait), you can subscribe to the channel, and then every Monday for many months to come, you'll be able to see a new video of us talking about one of our songs, and then playing the song.
We're very excited about this project, and we hope you'll enjoy them and comment, and come to concerts, and visit our website, and buy our new album, which will be released at the beginning of summer. (As you can see, we've got some seriously high expectations of you.)
But, first things first: Go to our youtube channel and subscribe.
Seriously, I'm still waiting. And I've got other things to do, like finish watching season 2 of LOST, for instance. So get going, would you?
