A sold out concert at Central Church Friday night celebrated Christmas with joyous music.
Everyone I talked to on the way out said they loved it!
The night infused the infectious and often hilarious personality of front man Mike Donehey. The night included “The First Noel,” a Boyz II Men “On Bended Knee” homage plus on online, on-screen character in Kenneth The Christmas Yeti.
Donehey told me backstage he enjoyed Friday’s winter weather with sunshine and a stop at Coffea. He got a bag of coffee there Friday and he said with droopy, tired eyes at 6:45 p.m. just ahead of an 8 o’clock stage time for he and his bandmates, “I gotta get this coffee started, because the second half of the show — wow, I’m gonna need that energy, you are gonna love it, Brad.”
From the lights, the costumes, the dance floor – Tenth Avenue North took us easily through Christmas styles from each decade for the last 100 years.
Thanks you for coming to the show Friday night.
The next concert is April 14 that includes Casting Crowns, Zach Williams and Austin French at Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls. Tickets are available Monday, Dec. 10.
