Festival of Trees

the MilePost13 Band is going to be playing at a local annual fundraiser called "The Festival of Trees" in a few weeks. We're really stoked about this event for a couple of reasons:

1) This is a big event that takes place outside on the property of one of the biggest local bars. That means this is a HUGE opportunity for outreach.

2) We're good. Not like, good for a church band...we're just good, for any band. I don't say that with an ego or arrogance, but with humility and confidence in knowing that God has given us all that we have and are. And because we're good, we're stoked to show our community that church and God can be fun and high quality.

3) This will be our first event like this, where we've been asked to come and play in a "secular" atmosphere. We're hoping for more opportunities like this one.

FYI...I downloaded the trial version of Adobe Illustrator today, which is why this graphic looks mucho better than anything I've done before. Definitely spent several hours on this and another graphic for another event. Only 30 days of fun with the trial, and then wait until the first of the year to buy it...

WOW Nate. That looks amazing. You are really talented. What a great opportunity for your band. Can't wait to hear you guys when we come down next week.

Thanks, Janet! I can't take credit for all of it, though...the really cool stuff was done by a pro, and I just bought it and made a few changes and added our info.
