Anyway, living in the northeast USA also known as the frozen chosen, not many Christian artists came this way in the 70's. In the 80's a church in Boston, Tremont Temple, had concerts on a regular basis. I went with friends and family to see Honeytree, Don Fransisco, Dion, and others I don't remember. Oh well.
Then Gordon College began having concerts in their gym. There I saw Randy Stonehill, Tom Howard, Servant, and Don Fransisco again. I am sure there were others which I have forgotten. I guess they must have been forgettable.
In Lowell Ma. I saw 2nd Chapter of Acts sometime in the early 80's. That was a fun time though they did not sing many songs.
My all time favorite concert was Don Fransisco when he came to Brockton Ma. in the summer of 1981. It was just him and one other guitar player but he was absolutely amazing and full of the Holy Spirit. I will never forget that concert.
I never did see Daniel Amos in concert. Or Petra. I really wanted to see both of them.
It has been a fun and spiritually uplifting time as I listened to these people play music for God over these many years.
May God bless the song writers, musicians and all the behind the scenes people who brought us this wonderful style of music. When things get dark and gloomy in this world, Contemporary Christian music is always there to be used by God to bring joy back into our heart.
