# 1 One Year Ago This Week – “Control (Somehow You Want Me)” – Tenth Avenue North
Last Thursday night in Estero Florida (between Fort Myers and Naples) I saw for King & Country and Zach Williams LIVE in concert.
Neon Feather opened the show a full 30 minutes before showtime. I had never heard of him before. He’s a trance, techno, and house deejay for Christ, and he remixes Christian tracks for other popular artists. He was very good, and I’m qualified to say that with my own background in that genre of music (before salvation). I plan to check out some of his dance remixes online.
Caitie Hurst was the next artist up at showtime (7 PM), and I had never heard of her before either. Neon Feather was one of her musicians. She was pretty good too. Her music was poppy and danceable.
Zach Williams was up next, and he plowed through 7 songs in a row including his first 4 big chart hits. He even threw in an original Christmas song. He sounded really good, and his band was awesome too. He’s becoming one of the biggest male stars in Christian radio, and deservedly so. I love hearing his story of salvation.
for King & Country was the headliner that the several thousand in attendance went crazy for (particularly little kids and teenaged girls). I’ve said it a few times before. I’ve never really been a fan of them or their music until just recently. Zach Williams was actually the selling point for me for this show, but as the concert approached I became more and more of a fan of the duo. They performed 4 Christmas songs, 9 of their hits (5 classics and 4 new ones from their new album), and 6 more Christmas songs (including “joy”). For much of their performance I was up on my feet singing along, clapping my hands, and dancing. (I had a floor seat very near the extended stage.)
It was an awesome 4-hour show on that Thursday night – one to remember for awhile.
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – 3 blog posts on Thursday, Friday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
