Ignite Festival and RED

I don't know if you know this about me but, when I was in high school, I mostly listened to bands like Coheed and Cambria, All American Rejects and The Used. I generally like all music but, I love rock music!

Actually, come to think of it, one of the things that made me really notice my husband, Nick, {way back in middle school} was the fact that he could play the electric guitar. I still remember the one time he brought his guitar in to school and played for a small group of us. That pretty much sealed the deal for me {haha}. 

Nick enjoys the same kind of music as I do, and we have a lot of the same history when it comes to the bands we love to listen to. Listening to a song from high school days really takes us back to "our time".

Move forward to the present, and my husband is still playing his electric guitar. Nick plays electric guitar for our church with the worship team and his God-given talent truly couldn't be used in any better way than what he's doing today.

Since Nick started playing guitar for our church, we have been listening to Christian Rock music more often than not. We love it! Our passion for Christ and rock music combined makes for some really deep feels. I'll admit, I often cry during most of the songs in church.

The reason I mention all of this today is because last weekend my husband and I went on a date night to a local festival called the Ignite Festival.

There were a lot of great bands that played at the festival but, the one that we went there to see was the band, "Red". Red is a Christian Rock/Metal band and we got to see them play for free at the Ignite Festival last Saturday!

The lead singer of the band "Red" is the brother of my husband's friend from work so, we got to meet him before they put on their show.

Everyone who played at the Ignite Festival was awesome. While we went there mostly to see the band Red play, we enjoyed our entire time there discovering new Christian artists, as well.

The Ignite Festival has been going on for 9 years now and it's remained a free event for our local youth and adults, alike. I was so glad we got the opportunity to watch Red play live and locally. We really loved the festival, overall, and we look forward to going again next year!

Readers, what kind of music do you like to listen to? Who did you last see in concert?
