3 Chords & A Bunch Of Friends

Thanks to all of you who made the trip over to Shenanigans to support 3 Chords on Tuesday night. We're not really sure where the whole contest thing stands, I suppose we'll learn something from Randy who runs the thing at some point.

The most important thing is that we had a great time because so many of our friends came out and joined us. Thanks!

We're hoping to have some pictures, audio and video ready to share on the blog soon. In the meantime, here are some comments we heard about the evening.

A regular Shenanigans patron to Jim as we were leaving: "You guys are leaving this place better than you found it."

Another regular as we finished our set: "Thank you! You guys made me smile. I needed to smile today."

A woman in the doorway, repeated often, we think to Jesse... though maybe directed towards Dan or Jim: "Hey Curly! Hey Curly!"

A woman up on the bar level, hanging over the rail as we finished the Jimi Hendrix tune 'Fire': "You guys are @#$%^& awesome!"

One of the Christ's Church elders in attendance: "Maybe we should move our elders meetings over here."

A Christ's Church member who would like to remain anonymous: "All the (Christ's Church) drinkers are here."

Again, thanks to you all for coming out and sharing the evening with us. We look forward to seeing you again next time!

Upon Further Review

Snowed out. Moments after we finished the rewrite of our ageless classic... they tell us that the Open Mic tonight is snowed under. Stay tuned for the next chance to watch me make a fool of myself - sure to be coming soon.

3 Chords... Give Or Take

3 Chords & A Cloud of Dust it will not be, but I'll be there to do my best. Jimmy and Jesse have abandoned me for a weekend retreat. It's me and my guitar. To pretty things up, and to add exponentially to the talent level of my performance, my wife Shari will be joining me in sharing a couple of my original songs and one updated-for-a-new-millennium, classic standard from the 1960's.

Snow? What snow? Oh, the snow that is falling now. Yes, I am imagining that we are still on tonight no matter the weather - this is New Hampshire, we can handle snow! But, it still might be a good idea for you to give JBeaners a call (672-3332) before you head out tonight if you have any concerns that the event is cancelled. I'll certainly post it here if I hear anything.

I hope to see you tonight at 8:45. Come early for Mike's and Dave's set.

Friday Night Fun

Interactive Sermon Exclusive!

Friday night March 16th, Mike Knight, Darin Shaw and Dave Sumner (pictured above during their 2005 tour of Namibia) will be playing the Open Mic event at JBeaners Coffee Shop on 101-A. The schedule for the evening begins at 6pm, with Mike slotted in at 8:15, Dave at 8:30 and Darin at 8:45. Make plans now to join a group of folks Friday evening to hear some original music and have some fun together.

About the evening, the three musicians had this to say:

Mike - "Dave Sumner is pretty big in these parts."

Darin - "Everybody needs to come. Mike said he will be playing 'Mexican Senorita'!"

Dave - "What is a JBeaner?"

Amazing Grace Party

The film 'Amazing Grace' is set to be released next week, February 23rd. The film is based on the true story of William Wilberforce's struggle to end slavery in 18th Century England. It is for this movie that Chris Tomlin was asked to compose a new chorus for the hymn Amazing Grace. Check out the movie's website here, and catch the theatre preview.

I am thinking a movie night party is in order. Anybody up for a trip to the theatre with me next week?

Friday Night With 3 Chords!

Interactive Sermon Exclusive!

3 Chords & A Cloud of Dust will take part in Friday night's Open Mic at JBeaners in Amherst. The Open Mic will serve as another of 3 Chord's tune-ups before they kick off their World Tour (of Southern New Hampshire) and in anticipation of the release of their debut albums (note the plural!) later in 2007. Darin explained: "Yeah, we want to be different. Anybody can come along and put out one record. But two? Now that would be something!"

You can follow 3 Chords news by visiting the band's website at Concerning the website, Jesse said, "Dude! We have a website? Since when?"

So what will 3 Chords play this Friday night? Jimmy offered this clue: "We've been getting in touch with our harmonic selves. We want to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony!"

Make plans now to come on over to JBeaners Friday night for the Open Mic. 3 Chords is scheduled to play at 8:45pm. Hope to see you there!

What's In Your Player?

I'm spending time at the moment with Chris Tomlin's 'See The Morning' CD.

Track #5, 'Glory In The Highest' is lifting my heart and soul. Something about the simple proclamation of God - who He is and what He's done - leading into the choruses of 'Glory' and Chris singing the descant at the end of 'Glory, Glory Hallelujah!' just overwhelms me.

What's in your player? What song is feeding your heart and soul at the moment?
