Happy New Year With Ana-Sapphira


Let me introduce you to Ana-Sapphira! (Austin, Travis, Doug, Jordan & John) They are a group of Christian guys who like Christian Metal! They've been practicing and writing their own stuff over the past few months. Personally, I'm not a fan of that style of music, but I have to admit, they are REALLY good! No, not because two of the five guys are my sons, but because they are musically tight and they've been learning to put God as the head of their music!Austin is the bass player for Ana-Sapphira. They've been practicing for the past few months and have taken it very seriously!
Travis was invited in and was suppose to be working sound, but somehow ended up on guitar instead! (or maybe in addition, I'm not sure!) He's had fun learning the songs and contributing to the new ones! These guys have been praying together, eating together, playing together for a while now.... they played their first 'gig' (show) on New Year's Eve in Berlin, NH! They were invited to play for a church youth group along with 2 other groups! WOW.... they were EXCITED! :) (We all were!)
As it turned out, the other two groups coming out of MA got snowed in....and couldn't make it! So, instead of being an opener band.... they were the OPENER & THE CLOSER! After the stress of what they were facing, they put themselves to the test and had fun!
They stopped just shy of midnight 11:58PM and opted to pray the crowd into the New Year instead of playing them in! They are a great group of guys being led by an awesome God!
