We had our second MacJam on Saturday night. For those of you who don’t know what MacJam is, I will tell you.
Shane had the idea to hold a concert in our house monthly. The last Saturday of each month we have 5-6 musicians booked and invite everyone who will accept the invitation to come and listen. I make some treats of course:)
Last month we had 27 people including our musicians. We had comedy, theatrical, love songs and rock n’ roll. It was awesome, those who came caught the bug and we had no problem filling the roster or finding an audience this month.
This month was fantastic! We counted off the top of our head 50 adults (excluding our family) and 7 awesome artists! The night was amazing, but to me, looking around the room was the highlight.
We moved to Utah 6 months ago, know a few byu students, Shane’s cousin, and Shane’s bosses. This weekend we had over 50 people into our house, people we call friends. How blessed are we?
Here is some pictures of the night:
Our opening act, two of the most adorable performers ever! Once upon a December.

Followed by the HOTTEST performer of the evening:)
Followed by Eli Adams (yes even his name rings rock star) His proud Father in Law, The Budge/Adams duoThe intermission: Second act was opened by Devin RappleyeSpecial appearance by Corey Hart and Prince!(Side note, Devin didn’t realize Corey was not only my hero who I had planned to marry, but also Canadian)
Our Featured Guests:
Dan Thuet: this guy can sing! He writes his own music, amazing:) As soon as Dan walked in the house, I got a keeper vibe, he is a very friendly guy (and yes young single girls he is adorable!) Once he took me up on supper I knew I would need to keep him in our lives, but when he sang the song about a tantalizing love affair, with his Mom’s cinnamon buns, I LOVED him. Adoption papers are being drawn up, and I am in the process of making him up a room….
Carlie McKinnon and Dan Thuet singing the most amazing rendition of Alleluia (sorry KD Lang they slaughtered you)
And our Karlie We met Karlie through a friend, and we instantly fell in love with her. She is so talented, writing her own music, and yet so humble and shy about it. God sure knows what He is doing, if I had her talent you would all be hearing me all the time, telling you how good I am:)
Of course the night wouldn’t be complete without our new friends:)
It was such a great night, and I just feel so lucky to have so many talented people in our lives. I hope you can all come next month, we will of course have Eli again, I am pretty sure Karlie and Dan will be back, but we also have a violin player coming! How cool is that?
