A Reading From The Book Of Soccer Moses:
And it came to pass that Guns N’ Roses would play at Geodis Park on Saturday August 26th. Soccer Moses did ponder this event and how he could use it to spread joy to the people and raise money for a good cause.

And The Lord spoke to Soccer Moses and said, “Gather from among your number the finest musicians, and robe them in the garments of my daughters. By this method you shall bring joy to the people! Then find a worthy non-profit from the locality. Join hands with them and offer prizes to the people in return for funds for the non-profit. By this method you shall raise money for a good cause.”

Soccer Moses called out to his tribe, and gathered from among their number a group of willing and over-qualified musicians and clothed them in habits and wimples, and found a number of incredible vocalists to lead the band, each in a different song.

He was overcome with joy and puns, and thus was born Nuns N’ Moses, featuring a cast of Rotating Axls.

He then called out to the leaders of The Nashville Humane Association. They did jump at the chance to be involved and offered to bring a number of small beasts for the people to snuggle.

And they all came together on Friday, August 25th at Yazoo Brewery in Madison, TN and made a joyful noise.

And the people rejoiced.

About Soccer Moses:
The Legend of Soccer Moses was born at Nashville Soccer Club’s first match in the MLS, when the soccer prophet held aloft a banner that read “Let My People Goal!” and the moment was broadcast to the nation by ESPN. His prophetic message was then amplified by countless highlights packages, mentions on international podcasts, and features in worldwide soccer magazines.

Far more than a one-trick-prophet, the man behind the fake beard, Stephen Mason, is a three-time GRAMMY Award-winning musician, and is also known to his barbershop clients as “The Handsomizer." In his persona as Soccer Moses he was voted as Best Religious Leader in the 2021 Nashville Scene Readers Poll, as well as being voted second best sports mascot and third best barber.

When faced with any opportunities, the guiding questions Soccer Moses asks himself are 1) will it bring joy to the community, and 2) is there an opportunity to make a difference to a good cause?
