NQC ’10: Monday Recap
September 14, 2010 1 Comment
After scouring Twitter, Facebook, and various blogs, here are some of the top stories from Monday:
- The Toney Brothers have announced that Jake Sammons and Derrick Boyd have joined the group as baritone/pianist and tenor, respectively. Sammons will fill the baritone part while George Amon Webster is off the road recovering from his recent health issues, and will stay on as pianist when Webster returns.
- Tracy Stuffle joined the Perrys on stage for their final two songs, setting up “If You Knew Him” with a moving testimony of what he’s been through with his health.
- Speaking of the Perrys, Joseph Habedank is celebrating 7 years with the group this week. Congratulations Joseph!
- In an impressive show of class and support, Scott Fowler sat in the Artist Circle area during Gold City’s set to support Josh Cobb’s return to NQC. You will remember that Cobb left L5 during (or immediately after) NQC 10 years ago. (h/t, Nate)
- The Dove Brothers seem to have replaced “Didn’t It Rain/Get Away Jordan” with “Hold On” as their encore demanding sugar stick.
- Brian Free and Assurance were accompanied by a live band consisting of Matthew Holt on piano, Adam Borden on bass, and Ricky Free on drums. They also debuted a new song from their latest CD that is releasing at NQC.
- Buzz of the night Award: The Collingsworth Family. Several blogs/commentaries have mentioned the strength of their set and the more pronounced crowd approval of said set.
Stay tuned, I’m sure there will be more to come tomorrow.
