While growing up him the Catholic church, UU folksingers Joseph and John DeMasi were introduced to a very narrow definition of God. We know that our spirituality can be found everywhere and anywhere. Join the DeMasi Bros. in their return engagement as they share the spirituality they find in their music.
Joseph and John DeMasi, the DeMasi Brothers are award winning UU singer/songwriters who began their singing career in the folk clubs of New York City where they were born and raised. They were heavily involved in the folk music revival scene in Greenwich Village in the 1980’s and appeared regularly at the famed “Speakeasy” folk club. In 1992 they joined forces with their lifelong friend Chris Burke, the actor with Down Syndrome best known for his starring role as “Corky”in the hit ABC-TV show Life Goes On. The trio formed a singing group for children and families, got a record deal on BMG, recorded four award winning CD’s and toured the country for 20 years promoting the message of inclusion, tolerance and ability awareness. They have performed in all 53 states including the states of exhaustion, confusion and delirium! When Chris retired, the DeMasi Brothers put their folk group back together and have been appearing at UU churches, folk clubs and coffee houses all across the country. They can be heard on NPR radio and have released four wonderful CD’s. Their music is embedded with their UU values and principles that they have shared with over 150 UU churches throughout the country.
