Open-Mic Night on Sierra Blvd–Shindig @ the Hex!!! Friday (Aug. 19) at 7 PM

UPDATE:  Well, it was quite an event.  We had 130-150 adults, teens and kids present during the 3 hours of our open mic concert tonight.  Many church folks and friends offered their music:  some fun, some moving, some really excellent and beautiful.  Our MC, Eric, was cheerful, celebratory and pretty easy-going given all that he had been managing to make this happen.  Thanks to all the church volunteers who made it happen in addition to the performers.

Headliner Brady McKay was great, with a fabulous jazzy, Gospely, sultry, lovely voice, and a great band.  Her women’s chorus and girls chorus as backup were great as well.  I enjoyed seeing so many folks from the church and having a chance to connect.

Though this was not intended primarily as a fundraiser, Eric reported that after paying the headliner and covering a number of costs, we netted $600 congregation.  Always helpful!
