Playing for TobyMac

Tonight was a real treat for me. I had the privilege of filling in for my buddy Tim, who plays guitar for TobyMac. I spent the last 3 days learning the show, and I definitely got to the point where I thought I'd have to duct tape my head in order to keep all the information in!

The guys in the band and crew were so helpful... and made me feel very comfortable. Clint, the backline tech, was there to babysit me and make sure I didn't do anything too stupid! He also managed to snap a few pictures for me!

Toby and the band made me feel right at home, and the Columbus crowd was great to rock with! There were even some Hawk fans there!

It's been a crazy experience.... Playing a show I learned over the last three days... Riding a bus with a bunch of folks other than Hawk... The guys in this band and crew are some of the best friends I've made over my touring years, and I'm very grateful that I got to share this experience with them!
