Los Angeles Americana band, The Storytellers, have announced a concert to benefit Altadena-based folk music venue.
March 11, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA – The Storytellers, the preeminent Los Angeles folk band, will perform a concert to benefit The Coffee Gallery Backstage on March 17 in Altadena, CA. The Storytellers are the fastest rising folk group on the Los Angeles music scene. The Coffee Gallery Backstage is a renowned listening room owned by legendary folk music promoter Bob Stane.
“The Storytellers are a hot, new young folk group making waves all around the Los Angeles area,” said Stane. “They’re wonderful singers, energetic and passionate players and we’re thrilled to have them spin their tales on our stage.”
The Saint Patrick’s Day show, dubbed “Musical Tales with a Bite” will take place at 2:00 PM and will also feature a performance by Los Angeles bluegrass band The Rattlesnakes.
The Storytellers took only one year to go from busking on street corners of Pasadena and Santa Barbara to performing on stages of bars, taverns and regional festivals. The Storytellers draw from the rich canon of traditional bluegrass, country blues, old time and folk music as a basis for inspired improvisations and intrepid vocal harmonies.
“It is our privilege to perform at The Coffee Gallery,” said Michael Garcia, Manager and Spokesman for the group. “Bob Stane continues to provide the community a place to experience music and artists that cannot be found elsewhere in LA. He is one of a small handful of promoters who keep the folk music scene alive with his passion and hard work. We admire Bob. We and The Rattlesnakes are pleased to donate our performance to benefit this vital music venue.”
The Coffee Gallery Backstage is a 49-seat show listening room featuring a fine sound system, excellent lighting, comfortable seating and a warm, intimate environment and is connected to a coffee house.
Founded in the fall of 2017 as a duo, The Storytellers formed in February of 2018, performing more than 30 Los Angeles-area shows through the end of the year. This intensive schedule included defining performances at the historic Mint, and spellbinding sets at The Love Street Festival, The Village Unplugged and the California Avocado Festival.
The Coffee Gallery Backstage is located at 2029 N. Lake Ave. in Altadena, CA. The show begins at 2:00 PM. Tickets to the benefit are priced at $20 with all proceeds going to the venue. Seating is limited and reservations are strongly suggested by calling 626-798-6236.
