On Sale Now
We have some great memories of Tallahassee, going all the way back to 1995 when Mac and I performed an acoustic show here as part of a promo tour of Florida. Mac even started writing a song called "Me and Mark in Tallahassee". Don't hold your breath - pretty sure it will be some time before it gets finished!
Tonight we got back to our "Evening with Third Day" show format. We're still not exactly sure what that model is, but it's sure been fun figuring it out. The idea is to give fans a more intimate experience than a regular show. No openers, less bells and whistles - just the band. We're pretty sure that doesn't mean an "acoustic" or "unplugged" kind of set, but it's not a full thing either. Whatever you want to call it, it we had a great time tonight.
This afternoon most of the tour was blessed to eat lunch at the Paisley Cafe. It's a little tea room kind of place in Tallahassee featuring a unique spin on upscale Southern food. Being's how it was a tea room kind of joint, we were pretty much the only dudes there. But that didn't matter a bit - especially when the food got there. I probably had some of the best grits I've ever had in my life! And the staff it so friendly. If you're ever in Tallahassee you owe it to yourself to try it.
After lunch we had a great study with Nigel. He's been in town for about a week and is getting ready to fly home to the UK. This afternoon we talked a lot about seeking God's will for the future and prayed together - it was a great time.
The next item on the agenda was soundcheck. We've done a lot of shows lately, so we're in a pretty good groove overall. But it never hurts to brush up on some old songs and try to work up some new ones. Hopefully we'll be able to incorporate some of the things we've been working on into the show soon.
Speaking of show, the show tonight was really special. With it being just us, we were able to do a longer set and include more storytelling and onstage banter. Because that's what people want, right? Banter :) Seriously it was a truly special night. My personal favorite song had to have been Born Again. We've been kicking around a different arrangement and tried it live for the first time. I think it went over really well!
Thank you, Tallahassee, for sending Deion Sanders to Atlanta. Thanks also, for Mark Richt. And who could forget the Tomahawk Chop? But most of all, for right now at least, thanks for another great memory!
