The Hotel Utah Saloon, 500 Fourth St at Bryant, SF, 94107
Now you can see SF's most passionate songwriters break from their glamorous full band appearances, and unveil their hearts and souls at an intimate "round robin" gathering.
This month's Songwriter Showcase features Heather Combs, Acoustic Son, Jay Nash, and Trevor Justice.
The Hotel Utah features a full bar and dinner menu (including veggie dishes), so come early for table seating and a hearty dinner.
Admission is $7 at the door, but you get 2-for-1 admission and reserved seats when you buy advance tix at http://www.acousticsongwriters.com
The first four people to come with a party of four will each get three CDs from the artists (a $45 value!).
Heather Combs plays guitar with reckless abandon and thrives on connecting with the audience. Her voice is sweet and then rough, strong and then
vulnerable, but always honest and true. The Heather Combs Band, was voted "Best Band of the Bay Area" two years in a row by San Francisco Magazine.
Acoustic Son blends the style of Fleetwood Mac with a taste of Dave Matthews for a uniquely enjoyable acoustic/electric sound. With voices rich as heavy cream, singer/songwriters Ken Kingsbury and Carolyn Shaw entertain with a strong repertoire of original songs.
Jay Nash has "Loose, gorgeous melodies and songs full of confidence but without swagger", says Jeff
Miller of the L.A. Times. In the last two years, he's played 350+ shows in 16 states. Nash also wrote and recorded the original musical score for the the feature length film, "Southbounders".
Trevor Justice is an award-winning composer and fiery singer/songwriter. He inspires fans with rabble-rousing anthems and endears them with soulful story songs about love, fear, and courage. He also sings about saving the planet, giving thanks, veganism, civil liberties, and global democracy.
