The Carpenter's Tools Reunion and Concert
October 7th & 8th, 2017
|Fifteen former members of The Carpenter’s Tools, along with some family members, participated in The Carpenter’s Tools Reunion / Concert which was held the weekend of October 7th and 8th at Grace Fellowship Evangelical Free Church in Milford, New Jersey. The main purpose for this event was to bring former members, families and friends back together for a great time of catching up, sharing memories, and meeting others who were a part of this ministry which was active from 1974-1991.|
The weekend ended with a Carpenter's Tools reunion concert at an event called Sunday Night aLive at Grace Fellowship where the group performed a total of 17 songs from different eras performed by the original members. This evening was a huge success, and the audience of between 180 and 200 was enthusiastically with us the entire evening.
