I’ll be playing at one of my favorite places this Friday with my friend John Finan (jjfmi). Here are the details:
May 14, 2010 8:15 PM – Live! From the Living Room
at the Oakland Arts Center Atrium, 7 N. Saginaw, Pontiac, MI 48340 (next to the Blue Note Cafe)
Hosted by Maggie and Jack Ferguson, who had this very nice statement about us:
JOHN FINAN and CHARLIE MONTEREY – Guitars, mandolins, great songwriting and singing… times two! Charlie Monterey’s music weaves a path through stories, those familiar and special parts of life. John Finan’s songs touch on relationships (good and bad), social issues, celebrities, bizarre geography, and evil food. Charlie and John have established themselves as performers and recordings artists on their own (with 6 CDs between them, including many recorded collaborations); and as bandmates in local folk supergroup Big Green X. Their voices and instruments blend seamlessly to produce a full, gorgeous sound – and a show not to be missed!
It’s a nice sit-down sort of concert venue; John and I will do 45-minute sets, and we just might play on a couple of each others’ songs. (Don’t think there’s any Internet broadcast of this one, unfortunately.)
