Clips of VIVIT

Holy is the Lord by Chris Tomlin

My son, Josh (lead electric) started playing this song and totally forgot to get out of Drop "D" from the previous song. His instructor told him, "No matter what happens, when you begin a performance, do not stop. Press on and do your best." Josh pressed on and did his best to compensate, but was very frustrated with himself. I was proud of him for listening to his instructor. In one of their songs, the drummers frame began to collapse. The instructor and I ran over to hold it up as he kept playing with a smile, not missing a beat.

All Bow Down by Chris Tomlin

Long Live the King by Aaron Shust

Go to THIS SITE for more details on VIVIT. We had several challenges with the video camera. I wish we had more to show you. They also performed "Stars" and "Meant to Live" from Switchfoot, but the battery went dead. Which, in my opinion, were their strongest performances that day. Joshua's fingers literally danced across that electric guitar as he played "Stars."

I see these kids growing, not only in the talent God has give them, but spiritually as they seek to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord.

Good job, kids!! They sounded real good - were they pleased with how things turned out?

By the way, was that pizza I saw you sneak by with?!! LOL :-)

Like I told Jen on my newer website:

I was hoping no one would notice that. :-D

They have only been a band for 2 months and hearing them live instead of outdoors on a cheap camera is WAY better. They did have a blast and several people asked if they would play at various places this coming summer.

In the midst of the performance, the wind kept blowing the music sheets, Josh started "Holy is the Lord" in drop "D" because he had forgotten to change it back after doing a Switchfoot song, and then the electric drums literally began collapsing... I think there is a pic showing me holding up the drumset frame. Their instructor told them that NO MATTER WHAT, keep playing... and they did. WOW!

You can probably also see me fixing their music sheets and running the mixer. When we got home, I took a nap.

They really had fun and overcame the challenges well! It was greatly encouraging to see them work together.
