228 Grant Street Candle Co.
Gospel Brunch & Candle Making Workshop (Sunday, June 4, 2023 | 2PM - 4:30PM)
What is a gospel candle-making brunch?!
In addition to being a candle-maker, I am a HUGE fan of 80s & 90s gospel choir music. For a number of years, I served as a musical director and pianist for congregations on both the East and West Coast.
The 80s and 90s were the golden era of Black contemporary and traditional gospel choirs. There's a tribe of folks like me who grew up singing in church, community and college choirs. From Hezekiah Walker & LFC to John P. Kee & New Life to Mississippi Mass, we lived and breathed this music.
So, being the gospel head that I am, I had this wacky idea of a candle-making workshop PLUS a gospel sing-a-long PLUS brunch. Who doesn't love brunch?
Guests will be invited to submit songs in advance for the playlist. We might even play gospel music trivia with prizes. This is certainly not everyone's cup of tea but if it's for you, join us!
