This is a relatively new, uber-cool super sweet venue,
presided over by two of the nicest folks you'll ever meet. The space is pure aesthetics ~ a mishmash art, craft and a packrat
collection of vintage gear just sort of, well, lying around. An assortment of yard sale furniture like you used to find in band houses of the early 70's. A place to just come and hang out. I love those places. One where you walk in and , if it's your inclination, you instantly feel like making music.
Great stage, acoustics, and sight-lines ~ not a bad seat in the house. If you like listening to me strum and sing, this is the perfect kind of place to do just that.
It'll be an honor to tread these boards once again
Please come join me to usher in the Autumn of 2017, and help these good people continue to keep this wonderful venue alive.
In their own words:
The Hearing Room operates on this fundamental premise: that the creative spirit is the best of humanity, it exists in everyone and there is never enough of it around. We strive to be a destination that offers a space for creators of original works to share and collaborate with one another in an informal, accessible environment..
