Weekend Review 09-2021-08 – Connections Weekend
This was a great weekend! We had a full band of some of our most skilled musicians in the band this weekend, and it’s amazing how much of a difference it makes. I understand that a big part of my job is training up new musicians, but working with trained musicians is a completely different experience. We had our usual practice on Sat. Afternoon that was an hour and a half long. Usually, we’re fighting to just get through each song once, helping everyone get their parts down. This weekend, we started on time – which was a amazing in and of itself – we working through the songs quickly, did transitions, then played the whole set 4 times. It was amazing, and it really paid off. There were almost no mistakes in the service.
Here was our set:
- Let God Arise
- Because of your love
- You Never Let Go
- Groups Video
- I Surrender All
I did the closing song by myself as usual, and did verse 1 and 2 together, chorus, then 3 and 4 together. It kind of helped it not feel like such a traditional song, without pepping it up.
