Good for you Ed! Having experienced both I can say that Shawn and Scott are 
dynamic performers and make for a great concert. Check them out.

> Hi All:
>
> As many of you know, OUTmusic and OutVoice include many artists
> whose work is faith-based -- enough that both include distinct and
> highly competitive categories for the annual awards. Last January, it
> occurred to me that I've never invited any of these artists to present a
> house concert. I'm an atheist, so why would I? Well, for one thing,
> their work is more about love, acceptance, and joy. Simple as that. I
> know their work well and know how much joy, encouragement, etc.
> they bring to our many Communities of Faith around the country.
>
> Saturday, July 24, 2010, one of the artists, Shawn Thomas, will
> present a house concert at my place in Brooklyn.

> Shawn's music is terrific, the message is strong and uplifting, and his
> performance style exceptional. The best way to understand him and
> his work it to visit his website which has many songs and videos.

> Look for the video, "You are here Lord" that has him tap dancing! I

> No doubt some of you are disinterested in attending -- it's not church,
> BTW, think more Amy Grant as she crossed-over to pop mainstream;
> however, I'll bet all of you know someone who may really be interested
> in attending. Please invite them. It gets depressing having only a few
> attendees -- it's a reason I cut back on house concerts. But I love
> hosting them since I get to see favorites perform without the
> constraints of short sets in a noisy club and share my enthusiasm with
> like minded people.

> Saturday, July 24, 2010 Doors at 6:00 pm, performance at 7:00 pm
> FREE (There will be a tip basket for "love offerings" for Shawn)
> FREE BUFFET AND BEVERAGES Come hungry!!!
