The band was unable to rehearse the week prior, so the team came in early Sunday for some extra time together. They must have done their homework because they played a tight set. Because of time we cut Grace Like Rain and Marvelous Light. The guy teaching went too long (wait a minute, that was me).

The band followed me exceptionally well. There are several instances where I will do a song different during the gathering than we did in rehearsal. Sometimes during the actual set I will sense that we need to repeat a chorus, or start a song slow instead of fast. Our musicians are gracious in following my lead, even with a change up.

Sunday night I threw them (and the tech crew) a pretty big curve. We were set to start “Holy is the Lord.” This was a song that would take the set from mid-tempo to more energy. As we started the song, I felt like we needed to repeat the 1st line a few times (it went perfect with the teaching and I felt that we needed to dwell on it for a bit longer than normal.) We had never done that, and had never discussed it. I felt like it came off pretty good for a band riding the wave. Give a listen here and see what you think.

Until next time; ride well!
