    Jesusfest this weekend in Boone Iowa

    http://www.jesusfest.net/

    This is the most exciting thing to hit Iowa in a long time. Absolutely the top Christian bands and artists in the world including:

    Audio Adrenaline
    Rebecca St. James
    Skillet
    The Katinas
    Watermark
    Ron Kenoly
    Our Hearts Hero
    Coram Deo
    Bliss
    Mindy Sawyer (She's not famous yet but maybe some day..... I'm playing bass for her)

    I hope it goes well...Iowa needs some good Christian Events.

    amy grant is a corporate whore! who else would sell their music to walgreens...



    down with amygrant!


    anyone else absolutely loooove the music at walgreens drug store.

    i work the overnights there..

    it's obnoxious once in a while, we hear some david bowie, or pink floyd, or even ozzy and metallica, but mostly it's phil collins and a plethora of generic female toilets.

    last night i heard three versions of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" in a row... admitedly, one of them was bobby mcfarrin and was funny, but still...IN A ROW!!

    they did play a song with some chick warbling over a fretless bass mimicking her melody..or vice versa.

    it was cool.

    first off... if anyone plays music outside of their bedroom and gets compensated for performing music in any manner of compensation then said person is a coporate [email protected]#$* sell-out regardless of 2 bucks or 2 million, the principle is the same. Lame topic/response.

    anywho, Spectorbassguy, are you able to make it up to New Hampshire at the end of July for Soulfest?? I think the site is www.soulfest.com it's gonna be a blast. Hopefully all goes well with your gig.

    ps. have you ever heard Misty Edwards?? Check her out, amazing stuff!!!!! I think she's from K.C.

    wow..you are a sensitive (wo?)man. It's a shame you can't take a joke...or understand things.


    maybe next time i'll use smaller words, would that work?
    ok i'll do that.


    My old drummers band "Imago Dei" is playing on the extreme tour in the 3 northwest shows. it's a pretty big Christian festival. anyone in the seattle/portland/kennewick (?) area should check it out in august. Looks like mostly smaller known groups, but should still be good.


    thanks

    Me too. Around here, corporate shows pay 2 or 3 times more than bar or club gigs, and they usually feed and water us real well. Plus, we get to see some nicely dressed up classy pootang, and there are rarely any toothless men smashing beer bottles over each other's heads at corporate gigs. I'll gladly take as much corporate work as they want to give me.

    yeah, I had a group that played a few shows for Microsoft for a youth outreach thing..or something, im not quite sure what....my keyboardists dad was a big guy for MS and got us the gig for a whopping 1200 duckets each show. plus we got nice sandwhiches and whatnot.

    Oh yeah. I've seen and met Pax 217 a couple of times when Frank's House of Rock in Des Moines Iowa was up and running. They were great guys and yes the bass player did play a StingRay. Great sound and great music. Their bass player is a wild man. Did lots of "stop, drop and roll stunts" with his bass on!

    In fact, Here's a pic of him that I took at Frank's at a concert:

    Unfortunately that's a little too far away for my schedule. Here's the website:

    I am going to Sonshine Festival though. Promises to be cool!

    A few months ago I saw Amy Grant in concert along with Mercy me and she was good but I didn't feel any feeling or heart in her music. I think that the crowd sensed it too because that crowd responce was very subdued!
