One week after the Randall Bramblett Band opens for Bonnie Raitt at Cary’s Koko Booth Amphitheater, Randall Bramblett is returning to the Triangle for an intimate solo performance in this first of a series of public concerts hosted by Umstead Park UCC.
Bramblett’s 2008 “Now It’s Tomorrow” (New West Records) is the seventh solo release for this critically acclaimed singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. Since his days with Sea Level in the late 1970s, Bramblett continues to be recruited to record and/or perform with legendary artists and other top tier musicians.
Voluntary contributions to help pay the artists and cover other concert expenses are requested. Donations can be made the night of the show. We are suggesting a donation of $10 per person (no credit cards please), but we will gratefully accept whatever you feel comfortable contributing. If a donation is not manageable for you, please support this event with your presence.
To reserve admission, register on the concert “Guest List” at http://www.upucc.org/concert. Walk up concert guests are welcome but reserving your place(s) on the concert guest list in advance is strongly encouraged.
ABOUT THE UPUCC VENUE
Externally and internally the northwest Raleigh building that houses UPUCC does not look or ‘feel’ like a religious structure. In fact, UPUCC shares this “green” building with the architectural firm that re-designed and retrofitted this former warehouse to meet the international LEED gold certification standards for environmental/ecological responsibility. If you didn’t already know, it is unlikely you would ever guess you were in a church building.
Public events will be held in the UPUCC auditorium which is an open and flexible “multi-purpose” space designed to be used for religious and non-religious events. It has a respectable sound system and comfortable seating for around 200 people (no pews!). When inappropriate for a non-church event, religious imagery and symbols can be removed from the space.
You can feel free to participate in public music and art events hosted by UPUCC without concern there will be any spiritual/religious strings attached. For these events, the building is being offered as a religiously neutral public venue for sharing the enjoyment of music and the arts with the broader community.
