THE LEGENDARY AND awesome Bruce Rice was in the store this morning to buy some cables for the First Union Congregational Church portable sound system. Eight years ago, with Michael Warneke's help, we purchased a portable PA for the downstairs youth area and used it for Sunday night services. I made a donation from my late mother's estate to help purchase the equipment, and it was a great system.
Bruce went looking for some of the cords and accessories the other day, but couldn't find them. It's been a long time since I've been down there, and when I went over to 12th and Maine today to help him look, I was shocked to see the entire corner area had been cleaned out. The small stage and the bookcases are gone, and the numerous speaker and microphone cords have disappeared.
It's anybody's guess as to what happened. I can attest to music stuff simply vanishing into thin air. Second String Music will help replace the equipment, and I hope The Congo will rock. They have a new pastor and it's a special place, one I hold close to my heart.
Hey. Has anybody seen my lucky Orange guitar cord?
