Dear Friends,

 
OK, so another great guitar week is here! I’m super pleased that Marin’s Pacific Sun weekly has given the Guitar Summit show in Mill Valley this Thursday some nice ink (click through to page 18 on the PDF of the issue), and I’ll continue my promotional blitz with an appearance on KWMR Radio tomorrow (Wednesday) evening, sometime between 6:30 and 8:30. What are we blitzing about? Well, here’s the deal:
 
Teja Gerken, Tim Sparks, Ken Bonfield, and Steve Davison (aka “Fingerstyle Guitar Summit”)
This is going to be a blast. I couldn’t be happier than to be joined by these three amazing players. Seriously, check them out on YouTube or on their websites—they’re amazing! And I’m excited to finally bring my occasional Guitar Summit series to the 142 Throckmorton, which is a beautiful listening room in the heart of Mill Valley.
 
Saturday, April 27th, 8:00PM – Monkey House Theater, Berkeley, California
Teja Gerken, Ken Bonfield, and Steve Davison (aka “Artistry of Guitar”)
This one will also be a lot of fun, and quite different from the Mill Valley show. Tim can’t join us in Berkeley, but we’ll do this show in the fashion that Ken and Steve often perform in as “The Artistry of Guitar,” which is an event that’s part concert, part workshop, part interactive Q&A. We’ll play, answer questions, talk about our styles, instruments, etc. Should be great! And the Monkey House Theater is one of the Bay Area’s newest and coolest little listening rooms. Located at 1638 University Ave. in Berkeley, it’s a store-front that’s been converted into a performing space, and a very nice one at that. Please come and check it out! You can make a reservation by emailing reservations@monkeyhousetheater.com.
 
That’s all for now. We hope to see many of you later this week!
 
Thanks in advance,
