NQC 2010: Saturday Night

Saturday night at NQC featured some pretty solid sets… I am pretty worn out from this past week, so the highlights will be short.

  • Greater Vision had a good set that was highlighted by Chris Allman singing “Blessed Assurance” he was accompanied on the piano by Stan Whitmire, the two of them make quite a team. I was very happy to see them have Chris sing that one; I had requested it earlier in the week. Chris really made it look effortless…
  • Triumphant Quartet had maybe their strongest set of the week. Their set was highlighted by the ever powerful song “He Is” the buildup of that song is just incredible. By the time it ends it has taken you on a journey through the entire bible, a breathtaking journey at that!
  • The Hoppers had a set that was highlighted at least for me by their version of “I’ve Come To Far To Look Back” Kim sounded better than ever on that one… I also enjoyed hearing Mike Hopper sing some bass lines on that particular song… On their latest CD Something’s Happening Mike gets a nice solo.
  • Legacy Five had a more reserved set, they opened with Glenn Dustin singing his signature song “I’ve Been Changed” and I will say that it seems he is getting better and better each time he sings… They only sang three songs, closing with “God’s Been Good” There were several artists sitting around the artist circle and you could tell they really enjoyed that song particularly Daniel Riley and Brian Free… After what Daniel has been through and what Brian is going through that is understandable. L5 did come out later however and did “I Never Shall Forget The Day” it went over pretty well to a tired crowd…
  • Karen Peck and New River- Had a really good set without any problems this time!  “Four Days Late” and “We Shall Wear A Robe and Crown” Highlighted their set… The new guy (Jeff Hawes I believe) that sings with them really has a nice blending voice that fits the ladies voices perfectly…
  • Gold City once again sang “It Won’t Be Long” which will be on their upcoming CD… They closed their set with “When He Blessed My Soul” Tim Riley has never sounded better than what he sounded on that particular song… Josh Cobb also stood out on that song… He has really meshed with the guys and has even more confidence now that he has sung with them for over nine months… I am looking for big things out of Gold City with Josh…
  • The Booth Brothers started slowly with an A Capella take on “His Grace Is Sufficient” the vocals while not perfect were very good… They sang a few upbeat numbers and could have ended their set effectively with a home run in “Trading The Cross For a Crown” instead Michael went for the grand slam and got it with “God Did It All” while it is not always the smartest idea to follow a barn burner with a slow ballad it really worked for the Booth Brothers… It went over as well or better than it did on Wednesday with the choir…
  • The final four groups joined each other on stage for the finale which was  a reprise of “We Shall Wear A Robe And Crown” Michael Booth was on the drums with everyone else singing… It was a nice way to end the year this year at NQC…

Overall it was a great night. Other groups that I thought had good sets were Brian Free and Assurance, The Kingsmen, The Mark Trammel Quartet and The Talley Trio…

I will try and post some final points about NQC 10 on Monday, including a list of upcoming CD reviews… I am already looking forward to seeing what next year will bring!

    Hey Nate, I bopped over here after reading the little back-and-forth on Avery. Just wanted to say that I for one appreciate the tasteful, classy way you write your posts! Some people would do well to follow the “If you can’t say something nice, etc…” rule as well as you and other bloggers like Daniel do. Just because you guys don’t always insist on bringing out the worst in everything certainly doesn’t render your perspective any less valid than others’. Please keep it up!

    Thank you New SoGo fan… There are a few things that I will tweak and improve upon with my writing style, but I won’t get away from the positive vibe that I try to portray… I know that artist’s are not perfect, and I don’t try and put them on a pedestal as better than anyone else…
