The Calvarymen had an awesome evening with Neosho Missouri’s KENO 91.7 FM at their annual Listener Appreciation night. Since they first started broadcasting in 1986, the station has had continuous growth and they are obviously a shinning light in the 4 state area with all of the Christian programming they provide.
After their presentations, we shared their stage and sang to a capacity crowd and had a great time singing and celebrating the Lords continued use of this station and its action in delivering the gospel.
We were truly honored to have been a part of this great event! KENO 91.7 FM does broadcast across the internet for more information click on this link and enjoy solid Christian Programming.
Congradulations KENO, and we pray for your continued witness in the 4 state area! We are honored that you chose us to share this evening with you.
Well, we will be joining our longtime friends…. oh…what’s their names? Final Authority for their Homecoming, Saturday March 9th. We will sing along side them and also the Lesters from St. Louis, MO. Duane Garren is serving as their M.C. for the evening and is sure to bring his own style to the event.
The Calvarymen have always enjoyed sharing the stage with the guys from Final Authority! We are excited and honored that they asked us to join them for this night of Celebration!
A very good friend of the Calvarymen, Barb Billington, wrote this poem:
Always Take The Wife With You Hunting! Up in the Taj Mahal, Galen and Teresa Sat
When Suddenly they heard a deer’s hooves go pitter-pat.
Galen was quick, and shot the doe before she ran,
Now he’ll go home with meat for the frying pan!
It doesn’t matter whter you’re shooting a doe or a buck…
bringing the wife along brings good luck!
That’s right! We have the new CD “Until You Find the Lord” in and will have copies of it available at the Homecoming Saturday night.
Until You Find the Lord
Telling The World
He Came To Me
My Savior First Of All
All That Matters
When He Was On The Cross
In His Time
It’s Just Like Heaven
Dig A Little Deeper
Following In His Footsteps
I Don’t Regret
It’s just around the corner! Start planning now to attend our 26th Homecoming. We’ll have our friends The Kelly’s and HisSong. We look forward all year long for this event and hope that you’ll come and spend the evening with us.
Though we cannot predict what Scott may do, we’ll attempt to keep him under control this year….
We sang this morning at Crossroads FWBC in Wentzville, MO today up near St. Louie and enjoyed a great service with many friends there. On the way up it was pretty windy but on the way home we just needed a sail. With Captain Dixon at the wheel we were driving 65-70 mph directly into winds beating into the front of the bus that were easily 40+ mph. That’s a lot of movement clashing.
Galen directing the hired help.
In addition, we were trying to leave some windows open to enjoy a nice spring day on the way home, 85 degrees or so. So, the pressures inside the bus from three open windows started pushing things around. Yup! It’s true, the crazy windshield started to come out of its seal and the frame on the passenger side right in front of Scott. It was not coming in at us but was being forced out from the inside pressures from the windows being open. So, Gary and Scott held it in while Galen drove very slowly on the shoulder until the first truck stop we could pull into at Rolla.
Gary aka “Red Green” went to work on it with his multi-tool and got the seal to reform around the glass. So, after everyone loaded back on we were off again. Things were going well until we got almost to Lebanon went it did it again. So as you will see in these pictures below we had to operate on it again. (did you notice the dual purpose use we now have for our speakers?)
Mic Cord Installation
So, here we are on an off ramp at the Stoutland exit trying to figure out how to keep the glass in a little longer this time. Gary and Doren come up with “it!” We have an old microphone cord that just doesn’t work anymore so, it is recycled into a windshield seal. The gasket that holds the windshield in really needs a silicone cord made specifically for this purpose but since we didn’t have one Doren and Gary start to install the mic cord. As they could only tuck just an inch or two at a time we were beside the road this time about an hour. Once this was successfully installed by our “Certifiable Professionals” we were back on the road with Scott carefully watching for movement of the glass.
Of course for Doren and I that meant only a few more miles to Lebanon were we had met the bus this morning. Then we would be in his truck headed back to Marshfield while Galen, Teresa, Scott and Gary drove on back to Hartville. They would have to truly “test test” the seal on the mic cord fix. Success!!!
Those of you that know the group very well, know that there have been many challenges over the last 25 years that the Calvarymen have experienced. Some of those things have been painful losses and some were harmless events like today. Regardless, he is Lord and in control. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.
Yes, it is true, we are nearing completion on our most recent recording. We have a few vocal touch ups to do and then we will be ready to start mixing it.
Sometimes it is really tough being the only girl!!!
Make sure to join our mailing list and we will send you an email when it is complete. Please pray for Teresa. The guys need all the help they can get!!!
25th Anniversary Homecoming was Great!
For those of you that were with us, you already know what a great time we had at our 25th Annual Homecoming. The Kelly’s did a fantastic job welcoming the full house, with their smooth yet energetic bluegrass gospel. Then the Triumphant Quartet took the stage and brought down the house with their “White Flag.” They were a great bunch of guys!
We started our portion of the concert with a slide show sharing memories from the early days of the group on to recent pictures from all of the Calvarymen family. During and after this, we sang some of our favorite songs from over the years along with our current music. Doren was featured on a new song entitled “I don’t regret.” This is sure to be one of the favorites when we sing at our 50th Annual Homecoming!
For those of you that missed it…you missed it! In the coming days we’ll post some pictures from this years event for your viewing. Remember to come back to our site for those updates, more group information and our schedule.
Thanks to all of you that attended we are both honored and humbled that you took your time to help us celebrate the opportunity and blessing of 25 years that the Lord has given us to serve him with music.
Continuing in His service, The Calvarymen
This years featured guests, The Triumphant Quartet
As always, we offer this to our family, friends and fans as a free evening concert that is supported only by a love offering. 25 years is a long time for one group to be together and we hope that you will come and help us praise the Lord for the time he has given us together. It is our desire to have a great time and celebrate the opportunity that God has given us to use the talents he has blessed us with over the years.
The Kelly’s will open the evening at 6:30 pm who will be followed by The Triumphant Quartet and then The Calvarymen. Get there early for a good seat. If you have questions about the event you can call 417-741-6574 for information.
