Compass Coffee put itself on the musical map in Baker Saturday when they kicked off an evening of live music.

The business which recently celebrated its one-year anniversary, held a live music night May 15.

“It was a very big success. We kind of packed out the whole front of the shop and some people were even standing,” manager Kaleb Renfro said.

It was such a success, Compass Coffee at Lawler’s will probably have another live music night later in the year. “We will probably try to do another one in the fall – maybe September. We’ll see how it goes and maybe do more as they succeed.”

Most of the acts that performed Saturday were singers, although a few performed with instruments.

“We had several local artists and teenagers that performed. Everybody seemed to really enjoy it a lot,” Renfro added.

“We had Izzy Cuppy singing and playing the ukelele,” he said.

“Havyn Wilkinson was singing and accompanied by Joe Epley on guitar. Then there was Thomas Heaps playing the cello.

“Cayla Duke sang while Epley accompanied on the guitar. Melissa, Hannah and Caleb Rost performed, with Melissa playing the piano and singing, while Hannah sang and Caleb played the cajon – a drum-type instrument,” the manager said.

The final act of the evening was Epley and Renfro singing and playing the guitar.

“It was a really fun event and we are really glad that the town came out and supported it, enjoyed it and we were happy to provide a faith and family atmosphere were people can enjoy music like that,” he added.
