Sunday Setlist - January 9

It's the second weekend of January already?  This year will be over before you know it!

Here's this week's setlist:


All Honor (Falson)(Dm)

Main Set:

Again I Say Rejoice (Houghton/Lindsey)(E)
Your Name High (Houston)(A)
God of This City (Boyd/Bleakly/Jordan/McCann/Kernighan/Comfort)(C)
Give Us Clean Hands (Hall)(G)


Turn it Around (Houghton/Lindsey)(E)

"God of This City" was a new one for us this week.  It's one of those songs that everyone seems to know, even though we've never played it.  It really fit in well with the whole "beginning-of-the-year" thing, when we look ahead and set our vision for the new year.  It came out pretty well for a first time, and the congregation seemed to like it; I saw a lot of people singing pretty earnestly.

We had some technical improvements today as well.  We're "experimenting" with in ear monitors.  I got in a PreSonus HP4 headphone amp and a couple of pairs of Westone UM-1 monitors so that we can decide if we want to go that way.  I used one and our drummer used one.  We're both completely hooked.  For a guy my age it was a pleasure not having the drums slamming away behind me, and being able to easily pick out the various parts of the mix without them being muddled by stage volume.    We pulled one wedge off the platform, which gave us some room and helped reduce the noise.  Very nice...
Plus Daniel said we looked "mad professional" with the monitors in.  Sold!

We also played at Lighthouse Fellowship Church, which is meeting in a new location; a local community center.  (the church they were renting had gotten sold, and  the new owners were not interested in renewing their agreement.)   So, for the time being, they are a "portable" church.  Just acoustic and keys over there today:

Again I Say Rejoice (Houghton/Lindsey)(E)
God of This City (Boyd/Bleakly/Jordan/McCann/Kernighan/Comfort)(C)
Shout to the Lord (Zschech)(A)
Draw Me Close (Carpenter)(A)

  1. I would highly recommend going to in-ears. We made the switch about a year ago, and to be able to cut out the stage volume has been a huge blessing since we have a pretty small room. I also feel like the group is tighter than it used to be.

  2. Ryan,

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    What kind of setup are you using? Does everyone have IEMs or just musicians? Avioms, or something off the board?
