Acoustic Guitar Showcase at the Woodshed
New Location! St James Anglican Church: 1565 Lincoln Ave, San Jose
Every month, I invite two other guitarists to join me in an acoustic "round-robin", swapping tunes in a concert setting. The concerts are at The Woodshed now at St James Church, 1565 Lincoln Ave, near downtown Willow Glen. No espresso machines, and excellent sound. Shows start at 7:30 PM.
Performers range from Bay Area guitarists to traveling professionals, from guitarists making their first public performance to Grammy winners. Each month is something different. Although the Woodshed does not serve food, there are many great places to eat nearby in Willow Glenn, within walking distance to St James. $10 cover for this event.
"I do quite a bit of traveling, and at times, it could be quite challenging to find a good venue - a good listening room, with a good crowd. Something many people don't understand is that the audience is a huge part of what makes a good performance. The performance could be great, but if the crowd is not willing to listen, it just doesn't happen. All three of us up on the stage will agree to thank you for being such a wonderful crowd by opening your ears and listening to us. This is wonderful!"
