On Wednesday of last week me and my family drove to Plain City, OH (4 hours, 200 mi. one way), to hear Voice of Praise on their Reunion tour.

It was good to see my buddies Glen, Ben, and Josh, and the others. In fact, I also met Paul for the first time, it turns out he’s an ITF constituent from way back!

All their former members were with them on tour, save one. Joshua B. Good (Paul’s brother) couldn’t make it, so there were nine men on stage.

It was a great program. They had a fantastic blend, you’d have to look far and wide to find a men’s ensemble that could match it.

I was surprised and pleased to hear them sing Walt Harrah’s arrangement of “God be With You Till We Meet Again.” Very sweet, and they knocked the tag out of the park. (Hopefully they don’t mind me using the term “tag!”)

AHQ did this song many years ago, and we could never pull it off live because the last chord called for five (as I recall) different notes. But they sounded great.

Seeing that this is yet another song they covered that AHQ has recorded, AHQ’s influence on them is more apparent all the time.

Ok, since probably only about 5% of my constituents got that terrible joke, I’ll just come out and say, that was a really lame joke! But it was funny to me and probably Konrad, so I put it in.

They recorded an album to go along with the tour, and it’s well worth buying. You really should get yourself a copy. Remind me to do a separate post on it.
