Second Half Quartet at Memphis Quartet Show

The stage was dim and darkness flooded the rows of seats closest to the stage.  Hanging above the center of the stage, one word hung illuminated in shamrock green – Memphis.  I had not attended The Memphis Quartet Show in 2015 and did not have plans to go this year either, but special circumstances allowed…

CD Review: As We Speak – Greater Vision

Greater Vision’s 2015 release, As We Speak, is a combination of refreshing music and lyrics that are challenging, meaningful and encouraging.  Each song enhances the sound that makes Greater Vision so beloved among their fans; whether it’s a rich orchestra behind a ballad like “This Is Mercy” or a rousing tune like “Preacher, Tell Me…

Make Some Racket!

  Many phrases would have been appropriate to title this concert review…how sad it is there can only be one!  Though, snatch phrases from the evening like, “Excuse me ladies, if I spit on you,” “George’s Birthday,” or “who did he think I was?” would be perfect, don’t you think?  But I digress… The Truthseekers…
