OGDEN -- The Satya Center for Spiritual Living, 795 24th Street,  is hosting Gary Michael Weinberg in concert from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. next Saturday.

For reserve seating, call 801-920-0560.

Weinberg has been singing, writing songs, playing guitar and performing for nearly 40 years.

“From New York to Los Angeles, and since the early ’70s, he has played his music — charming, delighting, and fascinating audiences at each step along the way,” said a press release from the church.

“He writes and performs in a wide array of genres, including rock, folk, blues, reggae, country, bluegrass, and gospel, but regardless of genre, Weinberg is recognized for two things: The power and potency of his lyrics, and the surprising style with which he performs them,” said the press release.

Weinberg explores diverse themes, like love and loss, redemption and survival, gratitude and forgiveness.

“Whether writing about the passing of his own father, his decades-long relationship with his wife, Melanie, or his dog’s lousy breath, his music is upbeat, life-affirming, and endlessly original,” said the release.

“Weinberg is a true story-teller, with a rich smoky baritone and a fluid guitar sound.”

An artist reception with light refreshments will be served immediately following in the Satya Cafe.

The Satya Center for Spiritual Living is a community run non-profit organization, offering meditation, self-empowerment classes and workshops, community outreach and support, retreats, concerts, and gatherings.

The center is advertised as an open and all-inclusive community honoring each individual’s spiritual path.

Call Rev. Ali Benjamin for more information at 801-920-0560.

“We love to bring inspiration through music and ceremony to the community and your donations afford this to happen,” said the press release. Love donations will be collected.
