We auditioned Dan Williams and he was added to the band.  Dan has been playing guitar since he was 9 years old.  Dan's father was a famous Country Musician recording artist back in the 50's and 60's.  Dan grew up in the Nashville area and so has grew up around music.  Dan has a very good acoustic guitar style and sound.  Dan's father also wrote Christian Songs and gave his music and lyrics to Dan right before he passed.  Dan has just relocated here from California.  He has 6 children and a lovely wife who are still in California and will be moving here in the near future.  His Children are all interested in Christian Music and involved in the Youth events and Christian Music at their Church.

Harry Moore has now also rejoined the Band.  Ron and David have played music with Harry for years now in a number of different places and at a number of churches as well as in SpiritSong Band and in another Band.  He is an amazing Electric Guitarist and has developed his own sound that is quite impressive.  He is an outstanding rhythm player beyond anyone that we have ever played with in any band.  He is also a very good acoustic guitar player.  He is a very nice guy that is extremely talented musically.  He knows all the songs and knows our brand of music and having him join us has essentially rounded out our core band sound.

Today we received the approval on the contract for our new place of practice at Bethel.  The good news is that we also have a room with a lock that is quite large to store all of our sound equipment. We also can practice in the sanctuary or their gym.  This is a wonderful  upgrade for the band.  Some of us are playing in the Church Band there too and so can keep our equipment on stage which makes it much more convenient for practice sessions.

Ron bought a new 8,000 Watt sound system  for the Band.  This was the first substantial move for SpiritSong Band which was Previously just a concept and idea we were thinking and talking about.  Having our own sound system will enable us great flexibility and the ability to practice on our own system.

Ron Smith decided that he was starting a new Contemporary Christian Band in the Hampton Roads area.  After playing for years in various Bands, as well as many Church Bands, he was ready for something new.  He had always wanted to have his own band and liked the idea of the freedom that comes with focusing on the music and expression and being able to build a group of songs that a band can just perfect in their own sound and present to others.  So he started SpiritSong Band after meeting and talking with some friends he had played music with for a number of years.  Ron has played acoustic and electric guitar since he was 13 and the first band he was ever in was a Christian Contemporary Band in Japan while his mom and dad were missionaries there.  He also plays keyboard and piano and sometimes sings.  He is a songwriter/composer as well.  He talked with his wife and they made a decision to do it.  So SpiritSong Band was started.
