Common Grounds Coffee House
June 17th
$5 suggested donation (cash only)
Doors open at 7 pm and show starts at 7:30 pm

After a three year pause for the COVID pandemic the Common Grounds Coffee House will restart on June 17th. We will continue on the third Saturday of the month. We are starting out in a simplified set up, we will not have tables but will have our comfortable chairs and have the stage set up in front. We will be selling some treats in the kitchen and you are still welcome to bring your own food and drink. You might want to bring some cash to tip the performers and for treats from the kitchen, small bills are always appreciated. We are also still accepting canned food donations for North Fulton Community Charities. Face masks are optional at UUMAN at this time, please feel free to wear one if you are more comfortable doing that.

Our June 17th Performers:

George Hergen
(a.k.a. “Captain George”) is a Folksinger and Balladeer.
Born and raised in New York City, he found his way to Greenwich Village at an early age and immediately became addicted to the folk scene that was happening in the mid-1960’s. He has been playing and singing ever since, continuing in that 60’s folk tradition.
In performance, George plays 6- and 12-string guitar, folk banjo, autoharp, and the “bones”.

Bob Bakert says: “On June 17th I will be doing a very exciting performance at UUMAN in Roswell, GA.. I will explore a sound and vibe that was “me for decades”. I am calling it, “The Acoustic Show”. “The Acoustic Show” will feature acoustic treatments of my favorite songs from the likes of James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Sting, Glen Campbell, a little R&B and of course the Beatles and Eric Clapton. Additionally, I will be adding a few of my favorite (award winning) original songs that I will pull from my seven album projects dating back to 1977.

“This will be a great night we are so looking forward to. Sharing this music which means so much to me. It will be an intimate night of songs with powerful lyrics and melodies… For me, this deeply personal music … will be a truly emotional experience… Come share it with me…!”

Bob Bakert has been performing for audiences for almost 60 years. His training is in voice and guitar at the University level as well as literally thousands of live performances and seven studio projects. For the past four years Bob has been acting for film and TV and he feels his acting training has allowed him to be a more connected live musical performer. Most recently two sold out shows at the prestigious jazz club “The Velvet Note” in Alpharetta.
