Throwback Thursday

For our first Throwback Thursday I bring to you one of the greatest songs of human history, written by Dexy’s Midnight Runners. Come on Eileen, according to Wikipedia, was the biggest selling British single in 1982 and spent 4 weeks at number 1 in August of that year. In has sense been covered by many bands, including the ska band Save Ferris, and can still be heard on many t.v. shows and 80’s clubs. Not that I really know, once again…..Wikipedia. Enjoy!

Act of Congress

I have not been blogging as of late for many great reasons. The Lord has blessed me with an excellent, Christ-like wife who is serving my soul and she has been an abounding source of joy in the Lord. We have been spending much time getting into the swing of things, a.k.a. getting the apartment togethor which seems to take much longer than we expected. I have also started back to school and though I am only taking two classes, the reading load is still great in light of my duties as a husband. Pray for me as I seek to nourish and cherish Ashton, and strive to love her as Christ has loved his bride and body.

 Ok, now I want to tell you about an excellent band that is based in Birmingham, Alabama–Act of Congress. They are extremely talented and have a fresh, unique style that is reminiscent of Nickel Creek and Chris Thile. The band consists of Bethany Borg (fiddle/vocals), Tim Carroll (bass/vocals), Chris Griffin (guitar/dobro/vocals), and Adam Wright(mandolin/guitar/vocals). All of the members are phenomenal musicians and excellent vocalists, and for once they are a band whose original pieces outshine the great covers they play in their shows.

So I encourage you guys to keep up with this group and to check out their Myspace. I also encourage you all to check out Adam Wright’s myspace. Here are a few videos that have recently been put on Youtube. The first is their performance of “Paperback Writer” at the Workplay Theatre, and the second is a promo video that they have put togethor.
