There are quite a few videos of "The Lutherans Song" by Lost And Found . . .

I love those guys . . . usually see 'em about once a year.

Yeah, me too. They always play at the Youth Specialties conference that my youth ministry team attends every year.

I first saw them at the ELCA Youth Gathering in 2000 in St. Louis.

They were at the one in 1997 in New Orleans, but we were Youth Servant Corp there and didn't really have time to see a lot of bands or other activities that were happening.

I do see them at the ELCA's Extravaganza (E) every other year (The E is like Youth Specialties, kinda, but closer knit and loosely affiliated with the ELCA [as in ELCA members founded it]).

I organized a Lost And Found concert as well . . .

What does it cost to book them? I've kicked around the idea of booking them at my church.

It's now at $3,5000 (it was $3,000 when I did it, but they told us the last time I saw them that it had gone up, as is natural with these things.)

They are also VERY easy to work with! You have to publicize, but their manager, Troy, will make the tickets and send them to you. He'll work with you on ideas and communicate with you about any interview you want to do.

Then, for the concert, all they need is a clear spot and one standard three prong outlet.

I'll have to talk with someone at church who has more experience with these things. That is something I would dearly love to do. In a MySpace correspondence, they told me that a true Lost and Found show is about three hours, as opposed to the one hour they usually get at YS... Three hours of Lost and Found sounds like my idea of a good time, lol... How easy/difficult was it for you to make your money back on the investment?

And while I've got you, how are you doing? You were pretty low when I first saw you post here. I hope and pray that you are feeling better. : )

The "show" is about three hours, I'd say, but not the concert part (unless that's changed). They play for about 90 minutes, but they visit before and after the concert.

They don't need food, but because I live in Lake Charles, LA, I wanted to make gumbo and give them King Cake since it was Mardi Gras, so we did that and visited beforehand.

Aftwards, of course, they sold their stuff and visited with the people and visited a little bit with the others.

We, sadly, didn't make much money back at all, but that goes into the whole thing of that church not wanting to do ministry and just be a club . . . (I was the ONLY person working on organizing this concert and I wanted them there for ministry; I was the only person doing publicity, calling other churches, doing interviews, etc. It may be easier if you actually have a group of people willing to do the publicity and selling of tickets).

I'm doing okay. My family has been going to an Episcopal church. It's hard to believe that it's coming upon a year since my Daddy died. My new little doggy helps me, though. I have to take care of him (though I do miss my big doggy that passed away in December, too).

So, things are definitely better. Of course, still down at times, but definitely better.

Thanks for the info. Like I said, I'll ask around at church, see what I can find out.

And I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better. My mom's been gone for a little over three years now. You never stop missing 'em, but the pain eases with time. (And dogs help everything!!)

Here's this, too:
Invalid video URL.

Er, wait, that looks like a LOT of code . . . here's the URL:

Associated Content made the video quality pretty bad. sorry about that, but they fixed it to their standards.
