2018 Summer Dinner and Concert Series featuring Geoff McBride - Friday, June 22nd, 7:30 PM (Concert) Doors open at 6:30 PM

 

Unity of The Blue Ridge starts its 2018 Summer Dinner & Concert with recording artist Geoff McBride, the powerhouse singer  blew away millions of viewers and judges Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green on NBCs The Voice! Native to North Carolina, Geoff McBride has traveled and performed with such greats as Diana Ross, Sarah McLachlan, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin and more!

With a rich vocal palette that taps as deeply into the church music traditions of his youth as it does the romantic power of legends like Seal, Luther Vandross, Marvin Gaye, Al Green and Donny Hathaway, the North Carolina born singer brings his uncanny storytelling ability  in the tradition of another of his heroes, James Taylor - to his music and his live performances. 

Bring your own meal and beverage (no alcohol) around 6:30 PM and enjoy dinner before the concert - tables will be set up inside, or bring your own blanket, weather permitting. The concert begins at 7:30 PM.

Tickets available in our bookstore or online at: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3484627
