Church Music for Sunday 1/28/2018

I don’t want to speak out of turn but I think all the players have agreed to the monicker of “The Branches” or perhaps just “Branches” as the name fpr the church praise band. Even calling it “praise band” puts us in a box I’m not sure that we fit in. I know there is interest in playing outside of church at retirement homes or other funcitons and the way we are hammering weekly practices, I believe it can be done if God wills it. Maybe it should be called, “Guys who love playing christian themed music together.” I’ll generally try to capture some sort of media here each week to capture our progress. We don’t always have the perfect performance in the actual service which is not entirely unexpected since we learn the songs one day and play them the next. In the case of this week, right before the service we played , “Back To The Cross” http://brentsando.com/wpbb/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/BackToTheCrossBestRehearsal.mp3 and “Using My Bible As A Roadmap” http://brentsando.com/wpbb/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/BibleAsRoadmap.mp3 a little better so I am sharing the mps as well as the video.

Well, I try to go where the Lord leads my heart and for the past month or so that’s been Hillside Baptist church in Albemarle. I’ve been blessed enough to play alongside some fine gentlemen in the praise band. This Sunday passed we even played one of my own compositions from the GFC days that never got performed there so it was nice to see that tune finally come to fruition and really connect with the folks there to worship. My buddy Joe who’s got a long history both playing music with me and as a friend is the drummer for this group as well. PreServicePraise_01-21-2018 from Brent Bowers on...
