Sunset Bridge Band Friday - Deserie w/ special guests Rick Schettino & Danfield Saturday

We have a wonderful weekend lined up for you folks starting tonight with Sunset Bridge Band. Sunset Bridge Band is an all original quartet from the Tampa Bay area. Front woman and visionary Gracie Grieshop delivers beautifully crafted songs that revel in rustic simplicity. The band consists of a diverse mix including a Double Bass, Electric Bass, Banjo, Mandolin, Percussion, and Acoustic Guitars. Tickets are just $5 and show starts at 8 PM. (doors at 6PM)

Tomorrow we welcome for the first time, local artist and friend, Deserie Valloreo. Accompanied by Rick Schettino and Russ Shirley, Deserie graces our stage for her first Hideaway concert. We've welcomed she and boyfriend Rick Schettino at many "Living Room Live" events and we promise, you're in for a treat. An amazing, sultry voice with a mesmerizing charm. You won't be disappointed. Kicking off the night we welcome the new to the scene trio, Danfield. Led by the gifted singer, songwriter, guitarist, John Holt III, these fellas are on the fast track to winning over every audience they get in front of.... don't miss this special night of new original music. $5

Special thanks to last week's performers, Duo Friction Farm (such a treat... a blast to the past. Reminiscent of Peter, Paul and Mary without Peter.... or Paul) Thanks to Turnlight for opening the show. Saturday we thank, Kenny Mullins, Trigger City Trio and Danfield with special guest artist, Laura Spencer.

This past Wednesday we had a very special treat with Grant Peeples and and a who's who of the area's finest songwriters. Thanks to Gale Trippsmith, Ronny Eliot, Dean Johanesen, Rebekah Pulley and Dylan Cowles. That was one hell of a good night. Keep an eye out for Grant's line-up next month.

Starting next week, every Thursday, I will be recording each act (solo with guitar or piano only) with a limited sign up list of 12 entries (so get here early to get your slot). In order to receive a mastered recording of ONE of your three songs, all you have to do is BRING IN FIVE FANS to support you. We'll have an e-mail only mailing list for your fans to sign. After you play, just choose which song you want me to master. If you do this 10 or 12 times, you'll have a live CD recorded at The Hideaway Cafe! This music is yours and your alone. If you'd like us to sell it through our website, we can work that out. You can also look forward to possibly having your song featured on our web site. Lets record some music folks!!

Another reminder that we have a few new items on our menu too. I will continue to add things here and there to help whet your appetite. Thanks for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you here at The Hideaway Cafe.

Cheers! john
