Last Saturday, April 18, was Faith UMC’s Annual Coffee House. I say annual, but it took a break last year so this was actually the return of the Coffee House – part showcase for Faith UMC’s Music Ministry, part fundraiser, part social gathering.
Many Music Ministry acts and bands shared the stage, and there were even some interesting pairings especially for the show.
Some “friends of Faith” performed, including Cuban Middle Aged Missle Crisis which was one of only a handful of performers who entertained the crowd with “secular” songs. Of course, they chose some of the most ultra-obscure covers (including The Shaggs’ “Philosophy of the World” and Jonathan Richman’s “Dodge Vegamatic”) and handled them quite nicely. Frank Rocco has turned into a fine drummer, and finally brought his brand new drumset out of the basement, err, living room.
Another popular act was the trio of Wade, Gary and Brian!
