Birmingham audiences have not yet been overexposed to this essentially local duo, so it's still an event when they make an appearance on a stage (like ours) that allows their considerable talents to bloom. https://www.facebook.com/claystates
Doors open at 7:15 pm and the show starts at 8:00 pm. Each band will play an hours worth of original music. Please come out and support your local Birmingham musicians.
We open our home to traveling musicians from all over the country. We therefore ask for a cash donation from each guest so that these artists can at least cover their traveling costs. All proceeds go to the musicians. We hope that you will join us for a relaxing evening with good music and good friends. Please bring a friend, a lawn chair, and whatever you would like to drink.
