It seems I have been a little lacking in my posting so everybody who is reading you had better keep up today…expect a little catch up.
First on my list is the soulfest music festival. I went on Saturday with the wife and kids and we had a blast. first off it was wicked hot…and not only that but there were at least 1 billion people there. UGH. there were tons of cool bands there newboys, red, unspoken, tomlin, natalie grant, john rueben…etc….But I had my person goals….
The first show I went to was worshiptogethers NEWSONG Cafe. it featured Matt Maher, Chris Tomlin, and Charlie “freakin” Hall. Matt was the host and he talked to Tomlin about his song how can I keep from singing…and then they played it. It was in a room with maybe 250 people and it was like CD quality. Then Hall came out and tomlin gave him his guitar…hall complained that the strap was to low and Tomlin made fun of him for only knowing 4 chords. When he was done pokin’ fun hall pulled out a birthday card he found that sang when opened “how great is our go” to show to Tomlin…too funny…
So Hall sang Marvelous light and all we need…and WOW…amazing just killer…
Next up Matt Maher sang Your grace is enough, which he wrote, and that was brilliant as well.
After that we did some kid stuff playing, eating etc…
then we go to the main stage to see Hall with his band. HOLY CRAP he is good…I still think he should be as popular as tomlin and crowder…if not more…wow.
We saw a couple of little other bands and got ourselves the infamous fried twinkies…MMMM
and ended the night with Bill Malonee. Bill formerly of VOL is the christian Dylan. It was him, an acoustic and harmonica, and his wife on keys and bgv. Let me tell you I have seen him twice already and this guy keeps getting better. Why is Christian music best artists struggling to eat…arg… We had to leave because it was a 3 hour drive home and the kids were a little uh beat…but mmy dad stayed around to talk to him…he said he writes 50 songs a year and has been for 15 years. You do the math…
Killer festival…maybe some of my blog peeps can meet me there next year!
OH YEAH BABY…Im heading out to day 4 of soulfest at 8 AM…I can’t wait. Maybe next year I will be able to go to all 4 days. My wife and kids are going also. Gonna see Charlie Freaking HALL!!! woot, Natalie Grant, Derek Webb, Red, skipping tomlin and newsboys. lol but going to see Bill Malonee (lead guy of the old christian band Vigilantes of Love..I consider him one of the greatest christian songwriters ever…he is our Dylan.)
Expect a review when I get back…oh and a review of the worship conference I went to.
