Yes Sir, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

While in Michigan I'm at Pontiac Southside SDA (outside of detroit).

My girl is from City Temple SDA in detroit

Here in chicago I'm either at Hydepark SDA or Shiloh SDA.

no one really plays at shiloh.  There's a guy that kind of fumbles around on the bass, but they're more so conservative.  I haven't started playing out here in chicago yet because i want to get familiar with the churches and stuff.  I play all the time whenver i'm back in MI though.

Good to hear there some SDAs here.  I'm SDA, also.

This brings me to a question I've been wondering about: How far do you guys take the music, in terms of liberalness, at your SDA churches as compared any other churches where you might play?

i think it depends on the congregation you have before you. 

Myself even though my church is trying to move towards more contemporary stuff, which i'll admit i use to alwasy be the first in line to say we should sing this, but in getting older I'm trying to bring back those songs that "grandma use to sing" and hyms.  ther'es just no replacement. 

I honestly believe that the wroship service should still use hymns and leave the more contemporary stuff for the choirs.  During our praise and worship I like to mix it up like 50/50 with contemporary and traditional.  Just because you want everyone to praise.

Now with that being said my liberallness(sp?) depends on the song and the mood/timing in the service.  I'll rip and run in those hype moments and really lay back and just let God fill the place in other occasions.  It really is something that i've learned you just have to know how to feel it out.

Hmm... That's pretty much what I'm thinkin.

I'm leading the band at Maranatha SDA in Tallahassee.  The church is a collegiate church (with FAMU, FSU and TCC being in town) and I'd say at least 1/3 to 1/2 of the church is made up of collegiates.  Two weeks of the month, either I play or the band plays, one of those weeks being when the collegiate choir sings.  The other two weeks are led by the main musicians (a husband/wife team who are baptist).  Those two weeks tend to have the old-time, southern feel of worship service.

A few weeks back we played "Faith" by Kirk Franklin during offertory (all instrumental).  The two saxes took the melody and a did a little soloing on the organ at the end (mind you I didn't really open up too much like I did in rehearsal the night before).  After it was all over, I had all the collegiates telling me it was awesome and they were blessed by the song.  On the other end of the spectrum, some felt the song was inappropriate.  One specific person told me she didn't appreciate feeling like she was in a jazz club.

Our de facto motto is: If one is blessed, then we have done our job [as a band].  What would you guys do with that situation?

I have a cousin that I think goes to the talahasee SDA church.  Do you know Tameka Thompson?


and to answer your question ill simply state this "you'll never please everyone".  This doesn't just apply to just the music, but even to the sermon.

I can't place her.  I might have to see her to know.  I've been at Maranatha going on 3 years and I still don't know everyone, but many know me because I play almost every week.
