Here is a picture of the band taken while recording Long Time Forgotten. This was our first publicity shot.
In 1992, Mac and Mark were performing a concert at Mark's church, Hollydale Methodist in Powder Springs, Georgia. David Carr (17, drums) and Tai Anderson (16, bass) were playing with an opening act called the Bullard Family Singers. David and Tai's youth director, Mark Manuel, asked Third Day to play for his youth group. For payment, David would record a demo for Third Day in his basement. David, Mac and Mark hit it off immediately and began rough demo recordings. When it was time for some bass, David called up Tai to come and play. That day, Billy Wilkin's sister was taking pictures for a press shot of the band. Tai jumped in the pictures and never left the band.
Also, Tai and David were backing up the Bullard band which played before Third Day. Tai and David's youth pastor who also played with the Bullards invited Third Day to play at his youth group. To pay Third Day, David would produce a demo for the band.
