Concert Live-Blog: Legacy Five (Lake Gibson, FL)
Legacy Five at Lake Gibson Church
Legacy Five is appearing tonight at Lake Gibson Nazarene Church in Lake Gibson, Florida. The concert is streaming live online here. This is a live blog.
- 6:04: Introductions.
- 6:09: Opening congregational numbers, “His Name is Wonderful” and “Family of God.” It seems Lake Gibson’s server is already overloaded; it seems to be cutting out once every thirty seconds here.
- 6:15: Opening prayer.
- 6:21: As Pastor Kirby prepares to finally bring the group on stage…the server crashes entirely!
- 6:23: The servers are back up, briefly, as Legacy Five sings “I’m Feeling Fine.”
- 6:26: Scott Fowler kicks off his emcee work with a political joke. He said that the church made the group feel so welcome there that it was like the welcome they’d give a President … but maybe not this President. (Then he added, for a bonus, “Perhaps Marco Rubio!”)
- 6:32: After an introduction from Scott Fowler, Glenn Dustin rattles the subwoofers with “Roll On.”
- 6:36: Scott Fowler introduces Scott Howard, who sings the best song from L5’s latest project, “Destination Known.” (For some reason, I thought the review had already gone up, but it turns out it’s actually in the queue for next Friday.)
- 6:42: A funny comedy moment from the Scotts—Scott Fowler was giving Scott Howard grief over his socks. Howard: “They’re golf socks.” Fowler: “Golf socks? There’s just threadbare.” Howard: “They have a hole-in-one!”
6:45: Scott Fowler introduced Trey Ivey with their familiar routine of Fowler telling Ivey to play something Southern Gospel, and Ivey playing a classical piece before moving into “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.” (Thankfully, by this point in the program, the streaming issues seemed to be mostly resolved.)

- 6:54: “Life Will Be Sweeter Someday,” with no track—just piano accompaniment.
- 6:59: We spoke too soon. The streaming issues are back.
- 7:01: Glenn Dustin steps out front for “Somebody Sing.”
- 7:06: After “Somebody Sing” got a rousing response, the group immediately launched into “Boundless Love.” It seems the classics are getting the strongest response tonight—not that Lake Gibson can’t welcome new songs, since they’ve proved with other groups that they can.
- 7:11: Evidently that’s the case, since “Boundless Love” indeed closes out the first set.
- 7:26: The live stream crashes for several minutes at intermission. When the feed returns, Scott Fowler is doing the product pitch.
- 7:27: Scott tells the audience to say “Wow” (at the price of the product special) “on one, two, three.” At one, several members of the audience say “Wow!” Glenn Dustin offers up some great impromptu humor: “We have to remember we’re in Florida. They can’t count.” Ouch! 🙂
- 7:37: After a 10-12 minute product pitch, it’s back to the music. “God Had a Hand In It.”
- 7:40: Legacy Five moves onto requests. First up: “Strike Up the Band” (from Live in Music City, reviewed here.)
- 7:45: “Living in the Palace,” with solos from the Scotts.
- 7:48: Scott Fowler sets up “Ask Me Why” by telling the story of a Muslim mother and daughter, Hanna and Patty, and the opportunity he had to witness to them. (This has been a key moment in their live program for the last two or three years.)
