Friday December 19  ~ John De Hoyos ~ Annie Moscow and Alex Gold  ~

8:00 pm, John De Hoyos started playing guitar at the age of thirteen, when he pulled his first guitar out of a dumpster in Phoenix, Arizona. On that discarded, broken instrument, John taught himself to play Ozzy Osbourne’s “Diary of a Madman” on the three remaining strings. 

After years of constant practice (eventually with six strings) he became heavily involved in the San Francisco blues scene and, by the age of eighteen, was opening for west coast mainstays like Clearance Gatemouth Brown and Robben Ford.

Deciding that he could move his career along faster with a move to Los Angeles, John soon became involved in network television and feature film soundtracks, composing music on guitar, bass and banjo for projects including Universal's Spiderman 3, HDNet's Dan Rather Reports, Animal Planet's If I Ran a Zoo and Agora Entertainment’s The Final.

During this time, John became enamored with the acoustic guitar and began touring the U.S. and many foreign countries honing his skills as a solo acoustic entertainer, garnering accolades wherever he performed. In 2007, John became the only artist ever to perform for the American Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan while working with journalist Dan Rather. He continues touring to this day, recently opening for Grammy-winning, legendary flatpicker David Grier.

John has artist endorsement contracts with prestigious brands McPherson Guitars and Westone Professional Music Products and performs with and represents their products wherever he goes. Recently, John began recording tracks for his forthcoming CD, Wound Tight and Wired, with legendary producer Michael Wagener, known for working with iconic acts such as Queen, Alice Cooper, Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne among many others. After they recorded the first two tracks, Wagener is quoted on his site as saying "John De Hoyos is an amazing player. It was a pure pleasure to record him.”

9:20 pm, Annie Moscow and Alex Gold are mother and son, both talented writers and performers. You are in for a rare and special treat! Annie Moscow is a poet and a hit songwriter (Sarah Vaughn, Sister Sledge, Mickey Mouse), who brings a fresh perspective to subject matter not often sung about. Her very visual songs take the listener right into the picture, often cutting below comfort levels, expressing what others think but don't dare say. A riveting performer, Moscow commands the stage as she takes her audiences to unexpected places. In addition to her concert work, Annie Moscow has written and toured six one-woman shows featuring her original music.

Admission tonight is $8.  Doors open at 7:15 pm.
