Great intimate venue for music and more! With only 350 seats, there isn't a bad spot in the house.
Love the design of the restaurant and concert hall.
Parking is easy with either valet or there's a number of street spaces nearby. Food is good
March 26, 2014: Dan Bern and Miles Nielsen
Dan Bern is best known for his prolific songwriting and electric live persona. He has released eighteen albums since 1997 and built a loyal following based on prodigious touring and output of songs in all forms. Since 2007, Bern has also focused his talent and sharp wit on writing songs for movies and other projects. He composed over a dozen songs for the Jake Kasdan/Judd Apatow spoof-biopic Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story and composed songs included in Apatow’sGet Him to the Greek, starring Russell Brand. Bern’s songOne Dance was also included in Kasdan’s first film Zero Effect starring Bill Pullman, Ben Stiller, and Ryan O’Neal. Bern wrote a number of the songs in Walk Hard and Get Him to the Greek with fellow songsmith Mike Viola. He has also written with Marshall Crenshaw, Peter Himmelman, Greg Prestopino and many others.
Miles Nielsen has been writing them for as long as he can remember. Good, bad, great – yeah he’s covered all those bases. For some, music is something in the background, or in the corner of the bar, or merely something that lives on the other side of the dial – a magic diversion created to pass the time in the car. For Miles Nielsen, music is as much a part of his life as the act of taking a breath, every experience, every conversation, every dream is a potential song in the making.
March 30, 2014: David Wilcox and Vance Gilbert
David Wilcox is a father, a husband, a citizen and a songwriter. He is also a traveler – an adventurer at his core, always on his way somewhere. So how appropriate is it that the career of David Wilcox, celebrated songwriter and creator of more than 18 albums, began with a bike ride through North Carolina when he was just a teenager?
“As my friend and I bicycled the full length of the Blue Ridge Parkway we were asking people that we met, ‘Where can we find musicians?’ because we were traveling light and didn’t have our instruments, and they told us about this a hippie school, Warren Wilson College,” he says. He spent a week in Asheville, and decided to attend. “There was this cute little music venue, like 150 people max, and that was the perfect size for me. I was playing there every Tuesday and really learned how to make it fresh, not to just play the same set, but how to respond to the crowd and be spontaneous.”
