It seems like everyone agrees on one thing: last year went by too quickly. After so many years of knowing each other and playing together, we decided to put this band together. And with a whole year ahead of us, we are super stoked to get out there and spread the good word of bluegrass. Currently we have a monthly gig at Amnesia, which if you don't know is SF's home to bluegrass music for many years now. The owner Shawn has a profound respect for American roots music of all kinds and he graciously offers his stage every Monday for free bluegrass music. The Alabama Bow Ties are very happy to be bringing music to the people every first Monday of the month at Amnesia. If you are a bluegrass picker, you should make Amnesia one of your go-to spots. Sometimes there are open jams before the performances, there are happy hours with a great mix of bluegrass and early country LPs...it's is just a fantastic place.
With a few more shows sprinkled in here and there, we will also be doing a regular monthly gig starting in May at The Hall on Market Street. This is a new venue and restaurant pop-up spot that is temporarily taking the space of the old Hollywood Billiards. The location sat empty for nearly ten years. But since The Hall opened there has been a considerable increase in foot traffic in the area and it should be great to bridge the gap between the shopping districts downtown to the Civic Center area and beyond.
Of course you can follow us on all the social networking sites, so please do. Thank you for checking us, we look forward to a great year of bluegrass and making new friends.
