Mark your calendars for January 11 and 25 for coffeehouse dates. Doors open at 7 pm and show starts at 7:30 pm
Please use Red Door. There is so much happening at the UCA that we need to make sure we are letting you all know what door to use, a good problem to have really.
Do you know someone who has just started playing music? Or maybe someone that has been wanting to perform for a while now but just has not come to the coffeehouses? Invite them! We find that the more people we invite the more come! Each member of the UCA reminds artists and performers that the stage at the UCA is for everyone. This stage is a safe space to work on songs or stories and help build up the confidence to perform in front of people. No one expects perfection, the audience is there to encourage, sing along and clap for each and every person who chooses to go up on stage. So if you know of someone that plays a bit of music or even tells a great story ask them to come to the UCA on coffeehouse nights. All they have to do is sign up with whoever the emcee is for the evening and they will be added to the list of the evening performers.
January 27th we welcome Suzie Vinnick back to the UCA. Thanks to Home Routes the UCA has opportunity to have award winning performers take the stage. Tickets are $25 and all the money goes to the artist. The UCA provides snacks and asks for donations and that is the only money we get from these shows. This is why we cannot advertise in the local papers with these shows. There is just no way to pay for the ads.
Doors open at 7pm and show starts at 7:30pm Red Door
We are looking for a place for Suzie to stay for the night while she is here. If you have an extra bed and want to spend more time with Suzie let us know. Most times the artist is tired and needing to get to bed soon after the show but there is time of visiting that a lot of people really enjoy. The artist heads off the next day to the next show so the time requirement is pretty minimal. Let us know if you can host.
Send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot and or host the artist.
