We've had shows in the past and they were you know ok, but this year for some reason things got real. It all came to a huge wake up call when we played for an awesome youth group lock-in about 2 weeks back. Even though we've had shows before, we've had nothing like that experience as a band. It was incredible to see how from the beginning of the show where people didn't know us and were getting more comfortable hanging with us to standing up and getting into the music. Also we even had a few come up on stage and sing and play with us just because we were having so much fun. I never realized how much a crowd can pull from you and how you vibe off of each other. So when we go to shows usually we play people clap and we move on, but when we play SHOWS its a completely different experience where you are holding on to the crowd as much as they are holding onto you. When the crowd starts letting loose so do we, and when we start really having fun so does the crowd. I'm still on fire from that SHOW! Its an experience all its on that makes playing worth every bit of it because when you make a connection with a crowd it sticks with you, it makes talking to them so much easier when you know they are listening that much more now. Our show after the lock-in was a tough crowd and it was just that a show, but we do have one coming up May 25th and the Flopeye Fish Festival in Great Falls SC and we are praying as a band that God SHOWS up and SHOWS out like he did at the lock-in. We can only as a band connect as much as the crowd is willing to and when it does, its incredible it is a SHOW!
