Some highlights from tonight's Christmas Extravaganza!:
1) I totally screwed up part of Deliver Us, and I was the only instrument playing at the time (ouch).
2) I sang "Terez" instead of "Perez" in Matthew's Begats.
3) I ran out of breath in Matthew's Begats and stumbled over a few words, causing my accompaniment to stumble. Sorry, guys.
4) Drew nailed So Long, Moses.
5) The sound wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
6) With my beard and dark sweater I looked like part of a face floating around the right side of the stage.
7) My beard was awesome.
8) We actually kind of pulled the whole thing off. Yay!
So, tonight went a lot better than I expected. I taped it, so I'll try to post a song or two for you to watch. If you already own the Andrew Peterson DVD our footage will make you appreciate it all the more. If you don't, maybe this will be a little incentive to go out and buy it.
After the show, a few of us went to a house that our friend Amy is house-sitting. It was a lot of fun. I really like everybody I've met from SROM (Solid Rock Outdoor Ministries), but please don't tell them I've never really been hiking. They would probably kill me...or something. I don't know.
Andy Barlow and his wife, Caitlin, came into town today, so I'm hoping to spend a lot of time with him. Hopefully some of that will be recording some of his sweet new songs. I like songs. And bed. Good night.
