Light in a dark place

OK – I’ll admit it. I don’t know ’90’s music. I’m a child of the ’70’s, I worked in secular radio (and listened to a lot of music) in the ’80’s, but when it comes to the ’90’s, um…

Where did I put my Captain & Tennille Greatest Hits CD?…

So, what am I doing, playing such songs as “Wonderwall,” “One,” and “Walk On The Ocean” ? Doing what a bass player does, I guess. 😀 My friend Jeremy Hoekstra, who is a fine singer/songwriter (and if you get a chance, you should really go hear him sometime – check his site for his schedule) asked me to play bass for those gigs where he wants a full band. Evidently, old dogs can be taught new tricks. 😀 I play electric upright bass on those gigs, and it’s a very nice sound along with Jeremy on acoustic guitar and his dad on drums. (his dad is a VERY good drummer!)

And so we play in coffee houses, and it’s a blast. And, he’s been asked a couple of times to play at The Break Room on Plainfield. Not exactly a coffee house. 😀 And it’s interesting to see how folks respond to his songs, where his faith is not shouted but rather strongly implied. And you can tell there’s a difference in the music, and how it relates to people, and how it’s received.

And for a while, a light comes into a dark place.
