Happy Mother’s Day! For a change of pace, I planned an acoustic ‘unplugged’ set to lead our worship experience this week.
We threw down a cool rug, brought in some vibey lamps and busted out the upright bass….it was freakin’ cool! Top that off with great players and some killer vocals….the set was choc-full of musical moments.
It was interesting and challenging to play without a percussion instrument, but it forced us to lean into the uniqueness of each instrument in the band. The upright bass didn’t have electronic pick-ups so we had to mic it. I think if we’d had percussion it would have overpowered the mic, so that was a bit unexpected good fortune.
As if it wasn’t enough to just lead worship with this fun band set-up, the highlight of the morning was a thematic song we did featuring one of our stellar singers. So this would be the perfect time for me to introduce you to Helene Immel. She’s a singer/songwriter, artist and worshipper of Jesus. Do yourself a favor and get to know her music.
