My Son, the Rock Star

Every so often, I need to take my son, Jesse (just turned 2 years old) with me to one of the worship team practices, as I’ve been helping out here and there with the college bands (we have 3 now!) and of course our Gracepoint Fellowship Church Worship Team.  He’s also seen our Worship Team in action during our Sunday morning run-thrus a few times. He loves to just sit on a chair and watch.  But if there’s a spare guitar laying around that isn’t being played, he often wants to get in on the action.  Here are a couple of pictures I took during an a2f gold band practice at our North Loop building.

And now, some “never-before-seen” footage of the young musician at home practicing.  I’m not sure how he got a hold of one of my picks… nor why he starts counting in the middle… but whatever. 

Note to our worship team members:  Be aware of yourselves. The young, the impressionable, the rock stars of tomorrow are watching…

    Jesse – you rock! I think he’s counting cuz it’s half a song, and half counting off for the rest of the band… =) Maybe he can lead up the Gracepoint Berkeley Kidz Band in a few years. =)

    hey Jesse! Do you want to come to SF?? A nice auntie will give you a cookie if you play for us…. we are short…. I mean…. well yes we are… but…. we are short a guitarist!!

    knowing how to count is a necessary skill in pb.. some aunties and uncles are still trying to figure it out too so don’t worry about it!

    Oh my…
    he strums better than some guitarists that i know.
    it’s definitely time to start JoyCorner praiseband!
    he doesn’t even need chordsheets because, well, he can’t read yet. 🙂
