The Soul Seekers of Mechanicsville will give a concert at Angel Visit Baptist Church, 29566 Tidewater Trail, Dunnsville, on Sunday, October 27, at 3:30 p.m.
“The Soul Seekers” concert at Angel Visit is part of an event called “100 Men in Ties: Dressed to Praise the Lord.” This will be a celebration of the tradition of men dressed in their finest for worship, and will feature a parade of ties with a competition. Prizes will be given for categories such as the largest tie, the most colorful tie, and the most unusual tie.
Women are encouraged to support the program by wearing a tie, creatively including a tie in their attire, or just attending.
Refreshments will be served. The public is invited to attend. For further information, call Patricia Holmes at 443-9390.
The Soul Seekers sing old fashioned African-American gospel music in the early 20th-century male quartet tradition that originated in Eastern Virginia. The group celebrated its 50th anniversary earlier this year with a gala celebration, featuring nationally-known artists “The Sensational Nightingales.”
