I just got back from Onefest. Too much to say right now. It was one of the highlights of my life. Everything not only went well, it almost went perfect. Heck, for all practical and spiritual reasons it DID go perfect!!
Highlights for me included meeting all of the bands, spiritual moments like watching the kids in Sheltered Reality beat on their drums, sitting up on the bleachers and watching everyone worship to newsboys, reading the quotes in the paper of how God touched people’s lives, and of course one of my favorite memories was watching Phil play his first major show. He had a 1a.m. slot on the main stage and nailed it. Mark my words, people. Phil Francis. Pray for him, because he’s a star in the works! Also, watching Leven just rock the socks off old and new fans. It was great to see them kick butt like they do!!
I also hung out with Project 86 a bit, a boyhood dream of mine, and saw possibly the best show period I have ever seen with 4th Avenue Jones. WOW!!!!! That is all I can say, people!! WOW WOW WOWOWOWOW!!!!!!!!! NEVER pass up an opportunity to see this group live, regardless of whether you like thier music or not!! They are playing New Year’s Eve at Pete Beerman’s church. The one by the big corncob. Be there if you read this tomorrow!
I was super impressed by how smooth everything went, and even many bands literally said it was the smoothest festival they had been to. Amazing! AND THE FESTIVAL WAS PAID OFF BEFORE THE DOORS OPENED!!!!! That is almost UNHEARD of for 1st year festivals!! Halleluiah!!!
Tomorrow I’m spending New Year’s Eve with a new friend and we’re going to that 4th Ave. show. It will be a fun way to usher in the New Year!!
Here’s a picture of me and Project 86.
