Hello Jack.
We found your site when searching for Danny Davis memories. We sure miss Danny's music, but also really enjoyed yours and also enjoyed your site in general. We will be frequent visitors here. Would love to hear you play on our next visit to VA!

Brother Brown Thank you so much for your ministry, Of all the trumpeters out there, not many are living their life for Christ and playing for Him, may he guide and bless your heart as you continue to blow your horn for Him


March 12, 2013

Mr. Brown - I am a Bible student and also a musician. Your site was cool to find and I hope to meet you in person someday. Incidently, your favorite Bible verse as shown on your homepage is also one of my favorites. That is a neat coincidence!

Very Nice WebSite with tasty music clips. Hope to get to Virginia some day to hear you. We Cornhuskers were also praying for you during your recent East Coast Windstorm Disaster. I believe that the Lord is speaking to us, but there are so many who are not listening. Wake up America!

Hello Jack - I met you years ago at Praise-In-The-Park in Staunton and am hoping that you are going to be performing there again this year. We Love to hear your horn.


May 10, 2012

Hello Jack and thanks for sharing your musical talents with the world. We had never heard the trumpet played in your style and found it quite enjoyable. May God's blessings go with you as you travel around playing music for the King of Kings. And may you be like Jabez and have ever-expanding territories.

I located your website while looking for gospel concerts in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, which my wife and I will be visiting soon. We will try to catch the Hoppers show. Thanks so much for this wonderful resource and for your ministry. After listening to your sound bytes, we wish you were going to be with the Hoppers. God Bless!

Jack- I think your idea about getting all of the stuff done you gotta do during the week is good, but I think eating out after church and leaving a Gospel tract, or one of those Gideon new testaments is a good idea, too. I've also been thinkin', you know those real estate signs with boxes that say "free, take one"? Maybe we could put one up on church property with little Gospels in 'em.
I live in a little town in Oregon and I play trumpet at the local rest homes. Some of the same songs, quite a "coincidence". Glad to know there are Christians in your part of the country, too(at least one, or two.-Dave


January 19, 2012

I am a trumpet player from high school 1999-2002. Enjoyed your site very much. Keep playing for HIM! I feel that the end is near and we are to be doing all in our power to get the word out.

Wonderful WebSite with some very cool music samples. I learned a lot about this man by reading his blog under the Studio 24 heading. Anyone who is willing to record and produce a demo CD for upcoming Christian artists, regardless of their financial means is okay in my book. My check is in the mail for one of your CDs.

Hi Jack,
I was at the Barren Ridge Church of the Brethren several weeks back for homecomming and heard you play a duet with Mrs Sullivan. Man, your horn was right on and the message of Jesus came through loud and clear. It was a sound that I will never forget. Someone told me you had a terriffic website. They were right. Keep up the good work!

Howdy Brother Jack,
Beautifully Blessed c.d. you have partner. Got it today. Tnx.
We already have you "Blowing Your own Horn" on our web-site. Now I'm getting it set up to have you as a Featured Artist on the 2011 web-site. Just exactly which section, I do not know. When God tells me where to place things, I do just that. I just received the order to put you on the front 2011 shelf.
The nice thing about the trumpet, I personally feel, Jack, is that it is such a Gentle yet Powerful instrument. Just like Our Father,...He, with His hand, can wipe a tear from our eye, as we lay in His arm - yet He can move a mountain at the same time with the other hand. Now if that isn't Awesome, nothing is!
For you folks reading this note: Love and Serve Our Father, Check out Jack's C.D.,then buy one...This Dude is Blessed, and lastly, share and support our Father's web-sites. They are to and for His Glory , Amen !
Keep in touch Bro. Bob Olynyk

"The web-site with a Complete Ministry "

A note from Jack - Please take a minute to visit Brother Bob Olynyx's Canadian festival website - it is an amazing resource from a dedicated follower of Jesus. The address is listed here or you can simply click on the "links" tab at the top of this page and then click on the Canadian Gospel Festivals link. Either way you will be blessed!

Great website. I enjoyed getting to know more about you on your "news" page, and then your music is phenominal. Everyone should listen to the way you play the old hymns and then support your ministry by ordering a CD. I can hardly wait to receive mine.

Good morning, Jack,
We are so thankful for persons like you and Donna who bring sunshine into the lives of others for His honor and glory.
Thank you for keeping us informed about "The Gospel Trumpet". We trust that there will come a time when we will have the honor of being present at one of your concerts. You KNOW we have always thought you were the BEST trumpet player, ever!
If we don't win one of your CD's, could you send us one and we will send you a check to cover the cost of the CD and shipping? If that doesn't work for you, that's totally okay and we will just try to catch up with you, personally, sometime.
We thank God for you,
Much love, Dwight & Linda
