The Keytar Debut!

Last night, Oddwalk had a wonderful night playing a coffeehouse-style concert for the teens of Immaculate Conception of Dardenne Parish in O'Fallon, MO. We began by leading them in some Praise and Worship favorites before getting into our themes of Community, Participation, and Mission. We were struck by the spirit of the young people and their willingness to participate in anything we threw at them. That goes for the percussionists too. (even though all they did was sit the whole time!)

Our proudest moment came, however, in the long-awaited (at least by Orin and Shannon) debut of THE KEYTAR! During "Get It Together", a relatively new song for Oddwalk, Orin performed an eighties-style, no holds barred, note-bending solo that would have made Eric Clapton jealous. (or break the keytar). Rock on man!

Thanks again to Gretchen Pacheco, the parish youth minister, and all of the support staff in the parish. Their youth ministry efforts, called Soulfire Youth Ministry, are alive and well. We can't wait to go back.
