Creation Northwest 2012: Thursday in Review


Group 1 Crew came out shuffle-lin Thursday night at
Creation Northwest 2012.

Creation-ists (people attending the Creation Northwest music festival) had a brief weather scare Thursday night as omnibus clouds hung overhead and even showered for a bit. However, other than vendors with paper flyers on their tables seemed to notice. Even if it did rain, one doubts that it would really dampen the mood.

Thursday night started off surprising slow-paced with All Sons & Daughters providing worship in beautiful harmony. I’m not just saying that either, they have an incredible vocal talent that was very peaceful and worshipful.

Group 1 Crew came out “shuffle’lin” and got everyone on their feet. They rejoiced with the youth and poked fun at their parents, by sharing music from generations including classics like Kool and the Gang’s “Celebration” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” If you haven’t heard of this group yet, you really should give them a try. They bring something fresh to the Christian music scene.

Bob Lenz gave a powerful and passionate message highlighted by some incredible stories of redemption that hit some in the crowd right in the heart.

Family Force 5 did double-duty Thursday with a concert and a late night dance party. They certainly get the award for most creative entrance as the lead singer was rolled on stage in a giant clear “hamster ball” type contraption. He literally rolled off the stage and onto the audience who held the ball up. He would then travel across the audience, slipping and falling from time to time but still singing and not missing a beat.

The evening wrapped up with Thousand Foot Krutch followed by communion.

Vendor food of the day:
  • Calzones: There is a vendor on site that makes their own dough creating the perfect tasting and filling calzone. They also served big slices of pizza if you’d rather.
  • Nutty Ice Cream Bar: One vendor is selling the classic vanilla square dipped in chocolate coating and chunks of peanuts. Their bar is only $3.25, has a thick chocolate coating and very satisfying.

There is still two more full days of music and mayhem (in a good way) at Creation, so if you can make it, it is well worth the trip.
