Note from the Editor
Well, the music resources page is up and running. I hope that you'll send lots of new links in to me to add to this site. At this stage, it's still pretty small, but once I get a few more links, I'll be categorizing the links by section, rather than the straight alphabetical listing we have now.

No, this site isn't about John Merbecke, whose service music is still used widely today; rather, this site is for a southern Ontario band which plays "an ecclectic and electric (and ecclesial) mix of alternative, rock, gospel, blues and rockabilly."
