The 500 List

Ryan Adam Wells—Knox United Church

This is a story about love, friendship, road trips, changes and of course a 500 list of music. Ryan Adams Wells from Houston Texas, tells of his good friend Dave and himself who decide to make a list of 500 of their favorite but poignant tunes they gathered over 2 years. They decided to go on a road trip to bury some of Ryan’s relationship dilemma’s and kindle their love affair with music, plus some tantalizing one night stands. With a booming strong voice (both singing and narrating) and strumming his valuable guitar as a soundtrack to this tale. The plan was to travel through all the major music meccas like: New York, Nashville, Memphis and finally Austin. He shares this camaraderie using 500 tunes (he started with 5000) with Dave, where they compare and share attached stories for each tune. In the end, it is choice and change that is needed to shake up his life. There is of course some great songs he talks about and shares with us, I’m not going to tell you any, just go see this life and music affirming play.

On a side note, the venue’s capacity sits about 50 in this quaint church setting. However the room can easily fit an additional 20 bums in the pews…I mean seats.
