WE HOST A WIDE RANGE OF SONGWRITERS FROM FULL BAND, DUOS, TRIOS AND SOLO. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT ON ANY GIVEN NIGHT. the room itself is outfitted with bose pro audio with a grammy award winning mix engineer at the helm to ensure you get an exceptional listening experience. 

 

WHAT is american roots music

“Americana is an amalgam of American folk music formed by the confluence of the shared and varied traditions that make up the musical ethos of the United States; specifically those sounds that are merged from folk, country, blues, rhythm and blues, rock and roll and other external influences. Americana, as defined by the Americana Music Association (AMA), is “contemporary music that incorporates elements of various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, R&B and blues, resulting in a distinctive roots-oriented sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw. While acoustic instruments are often present and vital, Americana also often uses a full electric band.”
