The evening will feature songs written mostly for grownups but fit for the whole family; a celebration of life, love, faith and (possibly) trampolines.

Review for Pat Terry: 

Pat Terry is well known to many from his days in the Pat Terry Group, part of the first wave of contemporary Christian music, a.k.a. "Jesus Music," in the ‘70s.  His songs found mainstream attention when recorded by other artists such as B.J. Thomas (“Home Where I Belong,” “Happy Man”).

By the ‘80s Terry had gone solo as an artist.  Feeling the need to reach beyond the mold of the CCM market, Terry penned lyrics that were more introspective and less overtly "religious" in some cases but still spiritually sound.  His talents continued to find an outlet in the Nashville country market; his songwriting credits include "National Working Woman's Holiday" (Sammy Kershaw), "It's a Little Too Late" (Tanya Tucker) and Travis Tritt’s first #1 single, "Help Me Hold On." 

On Terry’s recent independent releases, “Laugh For a Million Years” and the new one, “How Hard It Is to Fly,” this been-there-sung-that artist offers songs that offer not only the wisdom of experience but also enough passion, hope and humor to inspire much younger souls.  Declaring that it’s a “Brand New Day,” dreaming of “Someplace Green,” and pondering what it would be like “If Jesus Was Like Me,” Terry’s songs touch all the bases of his storied career, and head for home.

Review for Mark Kelly Hall: 

Mark Kelly Hall's songs reflect the spiritual heritage of the Bible-belt South, combined with a lifelong fascination with American pop culture.  Hall has played an impressive variety of venues, including the Riverbend Festival in Chattanooga, the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, a kindergarten in Minsk, a college in Honolulu, and a church in Cape Town…but not in the same week.

Food and beverages will be available for purchase in the coffee shop; attendees are welcome to bring them into the performance space. For more info on the venue, contact Wired Coffee at 805-7602.
