I was in a room full of people last night who came to see a few bands at a little show call The Rock & Worship Road Show at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. It was a walk up show, no presales on tickets, and you paid at the door, only $10 a ticket- and it SOLD OUT the AAC. The bands were Addison Road, Hawk Nelson, Tenth Avenue North, Jeremy Camp and Mercy Me......it was a great show! I had never heard of Tenth Avenue North, but they are a really good band I will be checking out more - the lead singer had a great voice and I really enjoyed their music.
A few years back I went to this little free lunch concert on a parking lot in Lewsiville that Mercy Me did and there was a few hundred people that showed up for it (and I got to meet them and get their autographs), and it is just wild to see the following that they have amassed since then!
