NQC 2008 – Night 2

  • Roy Webb began the webcast with more comments about the crowd.
  • The Best Band In The Land as joined by members of the Primitive Quartet.
  • Less than a minute into the opening instrumental and I’ve lost my connection to the webcast.
  • My connection is in and out.  Got it back in time to see Karen Peck & New River do one chorus of “I Shall Wear A Robe And Crown” (I think….) before I lost it again.
  • Connected in time to see Ed O’Neal join New River on stage.
  • Tim Lovelace played piano along with New River’s track.
  • Gerald Wolfe is back to lead the crowd in two congregationals (“Victory In Jesus” and “Love Lifted Me”).
  • The Beene Family have the first full set.
  • The longest strech have continous connection I’ve gotten so far tonight is about two minutes.  Can I get a refund?  BTW, the Down East Boys are on stage now.
  • Arrrrrgh!  Seriously, does anyone know if I can get a refund?
  • The webcast seemed to get better for the Talley Trio’s final two songs, “The Healer” and “Searchin'”.
  • Greater Vision joined the Talleys on “Searchin'”.
  • Honestly, doesn’t everyone know Jacob Kitson’s feature is “Little Is Much”?  No matter how much setting up Gerald tried, it is not a surprise Jacob did that song.
  • Jacob got a warm reception for his rendition.
  • Karen Peck and New River’s set was capped by “Four Days Late” and “I Shall Wear A Robe And Crown” (didn’t they open the night with this song?) with the Talley Trio and Greater Vision.  It looked like Karen was trying to get Lauren Talley to take the lead on the encore, but Lauren was having no part of it.
  • Jerry Goff… THE PREMIER EMCEE in SGM, just messed up the title of one of the industry’s biggest songs of the last decade – a song he should have just listened to about ten minutes ago.  Instead of “Four Days Late”, he called New River’s monster song “Three Days Late”.  I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but he is an AWFUL emcee, and has been for at least the last ten years.
  • I enjoyed Paid In Full’s set, but the ending of the last song sounded rough.  I’m very glad they did “What The Storm Does Not Know”.
  • Brian Lester brought up McCray Dove to help the Lesters sing “He Didn’t Throw The Clay Away”.


  1. FWIW, my connection to the videocast has been rock solid since the show started tonight. No dropouts or even one stumble/stutter.

    Sorry for your bad luck.
