Event description

Description

Every now and then, Mama needs some caffeine to perk up her spirits, and music to soothe her soul! She can get both at Wired Coffee in Ooltewah on Saturday, May 11. That’s when hit songwriter and veteran music artist Pat Terry will perform in concert. Chattanooga area native Mark Kelly Hall will open the show at 7:00 p.m.

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

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.

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 in to the performance space (heck, bring a bean bag chair, too, if you want).

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is limited parking by the building, but surrounding businesses are very cooperative with Wired Coffee regarding parking. If you're not sure, ask a barista.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

For more info on the venue, contact Wired Coffee at 423-805-7602. For info on the event, contact Mark: mark@markkellyhall.com

What's the refund policy?

Sorry, we offer no refunds through eventbrite this time, but if something happens, contact Mark and we'll see what we can work out.

Is it OK if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

We don't expect a lot of scalpers for this show, but, hey, as long as the person entering is able give us the purchaser's contact info, a general description, etc., we'll roll with it. "Trust but verify."

Is this the kind of concert where crying babies and lots of talking during the music would be welcome?

Well, we love babies and a good conversation, but, no. This is a solo acoustic concert, and we want everyone to enjoy the music with as little distraction as possible. However, the coffee bar area (on the other side of what we're told is a fairly soundproof door) is available for noisy activity.

Will Pat have music for sale? And would he be willing to autograph my Pat Terry Group album from the 70s?

Yes! And gladly!
