The Hideaway Cafe - St Petersburg's Original Listening Room! 1756 Central Ave, St Petersburg, FL 727.644.7895

Maggie Council and Marianne Flemming this Saturday, June 23!

If you haven't been to the Hideaway Cafe in a while, this is a great opportunity to get reacquainted. Join us this Saturday for a very special event featuring Maggie Council and Marianne Flemming.

Maggie Council has shared stages with nationally and internationally known artists like Acoustic Alchemy, Joan Armatrading, the Band, Guy Clark, Steve Earle, Steve Forbert, John Hiatt, Hot Tuna (Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen), Robert Earl Keene, Jr., Rene Marie, Ronnie Milsap, Maura O'Connell, Michelle Shocked, Chris Smither, Al Stewart, the subdudes, Eric Taylor, Townes van Zandt, John Wesley, and Warren Zevon.

Maggie created the Estrofest series of concerts featuring female singer songwriters in Tampa and Miami, and has co-created workshops for underserved youth on the business of music. She occasionally coaches Rock School at the Patel Conservatory for the Performing Arts.

You, too can be a modern day Medici and support Maggie's new "pissed off" phase of songwriting by purchasing her work on or!

Marianne Flemming performs hippie chick music, exasperated mom blues, whatever happened to our planet laments, and music that honors the spirits that have paved the way before…In short, an all-around gal-guitar slinger/singer who loves to wail, weep and transcend. A 2006 MAMA (Madison,WI) nominee in the “Best Acoustic Song” and “Best Acoustic Artist” category, Marianne has a long history in the folk/troubadour tradition.

Marianne brings a decidedly left of center perspective to her songwriting. Described as “textured, expressive, sensual and zany,” she has many hues on her songwriting palette. Born and raised in South Florida, Marianne got the music bug early due to an influence from her father, a nightclub singer in the 40’s and 50’s. Upon graduating college, Marianne hit the road, and thru her travels she gathered the many influences that would become her unique style. Years spent performing in the Caribbean, busking in Europe, or jamming in a bar in Venezuela have all been synthesized into a musical style that lifts your soul and moves your feet.

“Folky-Blues with a Jazzy groove -songs that can make you laugh, songs that can make you cry -sometimes both in the same song!”

“The combination of her great lyrics and stellar musicianship makes this woman a cult legend.”
Rachel Bissex, Singer/Songwriter

This all adds up to a great night of original music. We hope you'll keep going with us and continue to support the incredible talent that walks through these doors. Doors at 6PM how time at 8 PM. $10 (plus tax)

To all of you singer songwriters, please check in with me to discuss your next audio/video project. We're running special rates on all projects over the next couple of months. You'll want to take advantage of this great opportunity.

All for now... Cheers! John
