Winter is Long and Cold, but Our Music is HOT

We are pretty excited. Following the successful run last summer of our Gospel Brunch by the Bay, we've recruited some of the finest musicians in the region and have created a new musical experience, great for parties and corporate events.

Our live musical experience can scale up from two musicians to eleven that we work regularly with. We cover a wide range of musical style, but have a special place in our heart for get-up-and-shake-that-thang funk.

A Winter's Concert | Date TBA soon

Our 2nd. Annual "A Winter's Concert" is guaranteed to be a very special treat for those with international musical tastes! This is a family event. There will be activities, crayons, and paper downstairs.

The door opens at 6pm | music at 7pm

Featuring Jeff Haas, Joshua Davis, Laurie Marino Sears and much more...

Tickets: $10 online in advance (also available at Oryana) | $15 at the door (or $12 if you bring a nonperishable item) | Young children sitting on a parents lap free (activities for children in lower level)
