EDIT: Ok, Carolyn (JusticeMom) asked me to explain brown bag concerts in my post, so here goes: Our contemporary Christian radio station, KSBJ, puts on Brown Bag lunch concerts. A singer, or a group, will come and give a free concert, originally at lunch time, but now they also have some evening concerts. They are sponsored by Chick-Fil-A, but you don’t have to buy your lunch there. You can bring your own. Most often they have been in the food court of a mall, but the one Tuesday night was at a free-standing Chick-Fil-A.
They take a break halfway through the concert, and they will do autographs. They will also do autographs after the concert. Bethany has gotten soooo many autographs of famous Christian singers. She has also gotten to know a number of the singers this way. Ask Beth about the polka-dotted elephants and the price of tea in China. That was a conversation she had with Rachel Lampa once. So when she saw her in concert, she gave her a polka-dotted elephant. I believe it was pink and purple, but my memory has been known to fail me.
I can’t even think of all the singers or groups we’ve seen and met…4Him, Chris Rice, PlusOne, Jeremy Camp, Rachel Lampa, Tammy Trent, NewSong, By the Tree, Watermark and many others. These concerts are really a hit with KSBJ listeners.
This should concern you: Economic stimulus? Feds want your medical records
While i was going through pictures I had posted on here, I found these, of well known Christian singers we have met at Brown Bag concerts. The first one is Mark Harris of 4Him. That group is not together anymore, but they were one of my favorites.
The next is Jeremy Camp. That was the concert where his manager gave me a free cd for being patient while Beth got an autograph.
Bethany went to the Brown Bag concert Tuesday night to see Kent. She posted about it HERE.
I have a doctor’s appointment in a little while. I’ll post more later.
