It’s been a truly awesome weekend!
We had a great show at
Then on Sunday morning we played at Shaw’s
Everything just seems so clear…..and our efforts so blessed….since we went on our band mountain retreat. All the band members and our families rented a big ole cabin in the mountains for Labor Day weekend and spent the whole time in Bilbe study, fellowship, playing music and EATING!
Don’t forget we will be at
The Lord is just so good ya’ll. Let’s praise Him everyday and pray that we are where He would have us to be.
Peace & Love,
Sorry I haven’t been keeping up with my websites, but I have had a lot going on the last couple of months.
My father was diagnosed with esophageal cancer right after Thanksgiving. I stayed with him in the hospital for several weeks, then at his home after he was released. I stayed with him and took care of him with the help of my wife, sisters, and bros in law. I would not trade one minute of it. I had some wonderful times with my Pop, along with some terrible moments. Thankfully, the Lord took him home relatively quickly.
Alfred L Seay passed away on January 13th and was laid to rest in the cemetery at Bethcar Baptist Church. My family and I are so grateful for all of the kindness shown to us by our friends and neighbors.
As for the some of the performances and events that I haven’t reported on:
The Chitlin Strut show was pretty cool in spite of major equipment problems. It’s always fun to play outdoors in a town festival type atmosphere. It is also a tremendous outreach opportunity.
The New Year show at Berlin was cool too. Again we had some equipment glitches but we are working on those. It was a great night with great music, great witness, great food, and great fireworks! We had a good crowd too.
I’m sure I will be able to update the sites more now. We currently don’t have any shows booked, so call us if you need us. We will be spending this off time working on original material. We have some really cool new songs that we’ve written that we are getting ready for you folks.
God Bless all of you and keep in touch.
Peace & Love,
Wow! It’s been another busy week. Let’s see…….
On Sunday the 12th we (my family and I) went to see Audio Adrenaline and Mercy Me in concert in
On Friday the 17th I took the wife and kids to see Third Day in concert at the Township in
I took some cans of food and donated them to the Food Bank at the Third Day show. They gave me a copy of Third Day’s new Christmas album “Christmas Offerings”. It is a GREAT album! I love their arrangements of the classical Christmas Hymns. See how God can work? I just grabbed a few cans of veggies and soup out of the cabinet and gave them as an offering. He then blessed me by letting me know that I had done something that pleased Him. Don’t get me wrong, I did not give the food in order to receive any gift, He just works that way sometimes. I love MY Lord.
Seeing these shows were a real blessing to me. I am so encouraged to see what I believe is a real youth revival going on. Praise God!
Man, I have had the best week! The Lord has truly blessed me (us) this week.
Last Saturday, the band traveled to Manning, SC to play at the
We had to quit playing that night around or so, so that we could drive back to Pelion to set up the sound gear at
Then on Tuesday night (Halloween), we played uptown in Wagener at the “Light the Night” festival. Wow! It was a great crowd. Churches Together for Kids put this thing on. They had games, inflatable slides, candy and everyone got fed. Everything was free. We truly had a blast! I thank Cindy and Wilson for inviting us to be a part of it. I hope we have the opportunity to do it again next year.
Then on Thursday night, The Mark Trammell Trio performed at
Whew! It’s been a busy weekend. Saturday we went to Manning and played at
Sunday morning we played at
We will be playing Tuesday (Halloween) night at the Churches Together For Kids “Light the Night” party. It will be held on the large vacant lot next to the Post Office in Wagener. It should be really cool. I’m looking forward to it. It is supposed to run from . We will probably start playing at about . That is the last show we have booked until November 19th.
November will be a great month. I am going to see Mercy Me on the 12th, Third Day on the 17th. We are playing on the 19th in
Man I am really getting lazy about posting! I have to tell you folks what a great time we had playing at the Bethcar Fall Festival. It was Sunday, Oct.15th. There was a great crowd. The kids played games, trunk or treated, ate, and rocked and worshipped with All Will Be Won. It was truly a great night and a great blessing. It was the first time
Then on Sunday the 22nd, we played at Bethcar again, this time for the
We will be playing this Saturday, Oct.28th at
Peace & Love
We also celebrated a sixteenth birthday this weekend. We played at a party for Brittney Hutto’s birthday on Saturday night at Bethcar Baptist. As always, we had a blast.
I am going to have some new playdates to add to the websites. Just need to confirm some things first.
Rejoice with me in the knowledge of how wonderful our Lord is. He blesses us in so many ways everyday. Remember, our God is a God of love and courage. He does not want us to fear anything. If you have fear in your life, that does not come from the Lord. Trust in Him always and fear nothing.
We had a pretty good show last night at
There were probably thirty kids or so there. They seemed to enjoy it. I know we did. We did have some technical difficulties though. We really need some new gear. I know the Lord will deliver in his time. Until then, we just keep doing what we are doing and having fun.
It has been a pretty good day today. We had a really good church service this morning. Brian is continuing his series on the book of James. Really good stuff. Afterwards we had a really good Sunday lunch at home. Then the band had a good practice. This evening my family and I went to church with Lenny to see him get baptized. (cool) He fell in the baptismal pool as he was climbing in, so he got dunked twice! He needed a priming and a second coat.
Fred here, and this is my first entry in this new blog. I guess I've got the new site in fairly good shape. Please check back often, as I update often.
I took the family to the Pelion Peanut Party last night. Lenny (our drummer) and his wife Carla and their little girl Cameron came with. I wanted to see "Anybody's Guess". I played with that band for years. The only original member is Davie, the bass player. He and I have been friends for about 25 years. It was great to see and hear them, they are really good. It's always good to see Davie. He came out and saw All Will Be Won at the Bethcar Baptist "Back to School Bash". I also got to see Frank (the best sound man is SC). He's always a trip! He told me that he is now a youth minister at his church. I hope to put some kind of youth event together with him in the near future. I love my old buddies! I love my new buddies too. I'm sorry that the rest of the guys in the band couldn't join us. Maybe next time guys.
I'll check in with you folks later.
Peace & Love,
