Concert set for Saturday

MANSFIELD - What would happen if you could combine Evangelist Billy Graham with musician "Weird Al" Yankovic? You'd get ApologetiX, that Christian parody band, which will be performing a concert at 7 p.m. Saturday at Camp Mowana in Mansfield on Saturday. With thirteen CDs and nearly a thousand concerts in their past, ApologetiX has been sharing the stories of the Bible using hit songs from the '50s through today with altered lyrics. They've re-done songs by an incredible variety of artists such as Elvis Presley, the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Eagles, Pink Floyd, Eminem, Linkin Park, and Green Day.
