Church on Monday has been playing their Monday night set at the Continental Club Gallery in Austin, Texas for some seven years. For Being There is an outstanding showcase of why the group has earned that degree of support and loyalty. The band, comprised of saxophonist Elias Haslinger, bassist Daniel Durham, guitarist Tommy Howard, drummer Scott Laningham, and veteran keyboardist Dr. James Polk, is electric. The set here finds them open up the throttle and hitting full power. The song list is a mix of fine crafted and well-written originals from various members of the quintet. This is a thoroughly captivating recording of the high-quality band.
