Hi Derek,

I'm wondering if you're the same Derek Bond who did some gigs in New York/New Jersey many years ago. It was so long ago I can not even guess at a year. However, the impression left seems to have endured over a decade.

They were arranged through John Oostdyke (a missionary in Holland). One of the places you (or the Derek I remember) was Echo Lake Baptist Church in West Milford NJ.

Hope to hear from you,
DonR (a drummer)

I've been playing with Derek for a while at i61. He's a great friend and a fantastic guitar player too. I also had the pleasure of meeting Rob at Derek's house, and we played together too, over a weekend. Another Godly man - and very skilled with the guitar too.
Both are, as well as worshipers, fantastic entertainers too, and a real inspiration to me, as a player. I'm very much looking forward to this tour. Hope to do some work with both of you in the future!!!
God bless you!

Please ignore Pastor Dave's comment. He's not well.
