Kicked off a new series on Genesis called “In The Beginning” today. Included a cool motion graphic that our communication guy found.
YOUR GRACE IS ENOUGH (Maher)
Haven’t done this one in awhile. Played a little with the verse – letting the band groove through it while encouraging congregation. Worked nicely. Should have let drummer keep the “break down” consistent after we started singing instead of falling back to four-on-the-floor.
THE NAME (Ivey)
Kinda’ crushing on this Aaron Ivey tune for quite a while. This was our second week to to do it. Not sure it worked as strong in the song 2 spot. Last week, we played it later in the set and seemed to work better with the flow of worship.
ONLY BY GRACE (Scott/Hughes)
Had our two vocalists lead this one. Been awhile since we did this one. Love the lyrics and the mid-tempo groove. Felt pretty good about congregation on this one – seemed that they remembered it enough to join in.
NEVER STOP SINGING (Wright)
Band did great on this one. Definitely the most “fun” songs I wrote in 2010…still love playing it so much. (It’s okay to love your own songs, right?)
Did the Breakaway version of this hymn. The descending piano intro manages to be simple yet memorable. With a hymn like this, there’s guaranteed to be some serious singing! Tim G. did a great job on all the piano stuff.
