Sunday Brunch at the Listening Room

Sunday Brunch at the Listening Room Cafe kicks off this weekend. The Listening Room Cafe has been voted one of the top music venues in town. It's in the Cummins Station building (the giant brick bldg. off the Demonbreun exit) in downtown Nashville.

Brunch is from 10am-2pm. Come by for Eggs Benedict, Croque Monsieur, Croque Madame, French Toast, Mini Quiche Lorraine, Omelet Du Jour and more. (Is breakfast really better in France? Must be).

Live--but not loud--music will also be featured, including Gospel music of all styles. This week's performers include Brandon Maddox (noon-1pm), and Terry Thompson and Josh Helms (1-2pm).

See or call 259-3600 for info.

The rest of the month will feature more great artists, including "guitarpist" (my word, not his) Tom Shinness, Gary Talley of the Box Tops, Karen Staley ("Keeper of the Stars"), and my buddies Charlsey Etheridge, Sabrina, J.P. Williams and Bill DiLuigi. On Sept. 25, we'll enjoy music by veterans of CCM Steve & Annie Chapman, and my semi-namesake Pam Mark Hall. She's planning to bring some friends, the mere mention of whose names will send a thrill through the spine of the any dedicated fan of Daniel Amos, the Swirling Eddies and the Choir. And a DX-7! Seen one of those lately? If you listened to CCM in the 80's, you definitely heard more than one.
