KEITH COOPER Christmas! & Angela Bryant-Brown
Saturday, 12/06/2014



Classical Guitarist Extraordinaire!

In the last decade, Keith Cooper has exploded onto the music scene as one of the most virtuosic and charismatic acoustic guitarists. He wears the hats of composer, arranger, music theorist, producer, and is even a noted author of several books surrounding topics of guitar technique.

Keith has successfully carved out an astonishing musical niche of his own. His dedication to the guitar is second to none, which is evidenced during his performances. Many testify that Keith's performances are "jaw-dropping" due to his use of alternate tunings and percussive elements on the body of the guitar, coupled with classic and original melodies.






Cameo Appearance by: ANGELA BRYANT-BROWN - Praise & Worship singer and Syracuse, New York native Angela Bryant-Brown showcases uplifting ballads. Her style features a strong vocal resemblance to the likes of Whitney Houston while displaying powerful and inspirational lyrics written by Brown.

JJ Heller Christmas Show
Friday, 12/12/2014



Fans of JJ Heller appreciate her folksy, acoustic songs that carry important messages about God's love, while showing off her incredible voice, which is complemented well by harmonies sung by her husband, Dave.

JJ and Dave have garnered success with the singles, 'Your Hands', "When I'm with You', and 'What Love Really Means'.



As an artist, JJ Heller is a mix of eclectic and down-to-earth: from her jeans and t-shirt style to the way she pushes her own boundaries. When it comes to her music, she never settles.

"Music has a way of speaking to my heart like nothing else can," JJ says. "It is my hope and prayer that my songs will somehow speak to my listeners and bring them hope, peace and inspiration."

Tonight, JJ and Dave come to the Cup to Celebrate Christmas!

GINNY OWENS & Bobby Coverston
Saturday, 01/24/2015



Lately, the pop music landscape has been crowded with songs of escapism, songs that turn a deaf ear to daily reports of terrorist strikes, ethnic warfare and economic injustice affecting people in other parts of the world, as well as race-based violence closer to home. Ginny Owens wasn’t about to perpetuate that musical disconnect on her eighth studio album, I Know a Secret (out November  2014). Instead, she’s crafted a 14-song collection for this moment, every bit as engaged as it is introspective.




Also:  BOBBY COVERSTON
Acoustic folk/rock with a hint of blues.
