Everybody bring your friends to UCOP on August 2 and get ready to "rock your gypsy soul" as we sailInto the Mystic with Fred and the band and four of the finest singers in town! Reverend Brandon provides inspirational message woven within the rock-n-roll music for a Sunday morning experience that is uniquely Unity Church of Overland Park at it's spiritually rockin' best!  And we should probably state the obvious...it's going to be loud!


And then, on August 9...  

When legendary bass player, Eddie Watkins, Jr., performs you feel the music, the amazing voice and powerful delivery, which is spellbinding whether delivering a funky Motown beat or a quiet meditative song. His music... other people's music, it's all a heart-lifting, soul-stirring, can't-stay-in-your-seat experience!

 

Eddie has been a highly acclaimed bass player and musician all his life. Born in Detroit, originally Eddie had a career as a session bass player. His hard driving bass licks have supported such R & B classic recording artists as Dan Hartman, The Pointer Sister, Gloria Gaynor, Pattie Austin and Billy Preston. Eddie has played on a number of gold and platinum albums, including movie sound tracks and television theme songs.   While he made his name as a bass player and composer/producer, his singing talent is indescribable. Eddie toured for two years with the Jazz Crusaders.

 

When he began attending the Spiritual Life Center in Las Vegas in December of 2007, a new type of music began pouring out of him, waking him up. Eddie's first CD "The Answer" was written, produced and manufactured in the first six months of the unfoldment of spiritual expression in his music. Ha has since produced several spiritual CDs, which will be available for purchase August 9 at Unity Church of Overland Park. 

 

Eddie was the Director of Music Ministries with Reverend Doug Foglesong in Las Vegas. He was honored to be the Music Director at the Center for Spiritual Living in Seattle, WA from 2009 - 2012. In 2013 Eddie began touring the United States and Canada performing services, concerts, workshops, directing music at conferences and following the path of his enormous heart! "It's A New Day Concert" is a an expression of love and gratitude which gives a new meaning to "soul music."
