On February 1st, 2020, The Upper Room presented Bob Bennett, Kelly Willard and PointMade, with Hadley Hockensmith, in concert.
Founder and host, Ron Strand, greeted the audience at 7:30 pm. He introduced local band PointMade, which opened the concert. Their set included many classic rock tunes including: “Baby, I Love Your Way” by Peter Frampton, “Danny’s Song,” by Loggins and Messina, and “Doctor My Eyes” by Jackson Browne.
The group’s rousing rendition of The Doobie Brothers classic “Listen to the Music” was a highlight of their set. For their final song, PointMade invited Ron to sing lead on Neil Young’s “Old Man.” Ron delivered an amazing vocal and the band’s accompaniment was exceptional.
After the song, Ron switched back to emcee. Ron made some announcements, which included an update on the “Love Song” rockumentary, which is still in the process of being edited. He said to stay tuned for more information about its upcoming release.
Ron also reminded the audience that The Upper Room is only able to continue due to generous donations (Support The Upper Room). With tax season approaching, Ron mentioned that The Upper Room is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, so all donations are tax-deductible.
