"Concert: "A Night of Music with Peter & Branden Mayer"" by Peter Mayer, Brendan Mayer

05/14/2019 6:30PM—Central Lutheran

Join us for a night of music with father and son duo Peter and Brandon Mayer.

Peter Mayer, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter has been with Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band for nearly three decades. Apart from his work with Buffett, Mayer pursues his own touring and recording career with 13 albums to his name. He has shared the stage with many bright lights of the music world including James Taylor, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Don Henley, Dave Matthews, and many others.

Brendan Mayer, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, has been building a following, laying his tracks in the music world. He recently released his debut album, the Getaway Car EP on Mailboat Records. He performs regularly on his solo tours, toured a year with Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band, and most recently played a four-night stand with Jimmy and the Coral Reefers at the famed La Cigale club in Paris, France.

Brendan and Peter joined forces last year to record their debut album, “Long Story Short.”  For the Festival of Homiletics this year they will be performing a mix of their songs from the years, including selections from Peter Mayer’s songs of faith CD, “Stirrin’ Up the Water” and from his soon to be released follow-up to that album, “Passages”, which will be available at this year’s festival.
