This romantic café-concert for Valentine’s Day features a medley of pulse-catching original songs with a folk/ pop beat, steamy ballads, a hint of jazz, and the soul and nostalgia of the ‘60’s.
Vocalist Berel Alexander (guitar) is joined by singers Katrina Mautner and Gabriela Welch with Otis Harriel (Violin), Carla Kaufman (Upright Bass) and Mike Lee (Cello). Known for his heart-felt lyrics and compelling arrangements, Berel won the 2010 Malibu Unplugged Music Award for his song, “Started with a Handshake” and is an up and coming Bay Area talent.
The ensemble recently performed during the 2012 and 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Utah; Yoshi’s Jazz Club and the W Hotel, San Francisco; and as the opening act for Buffy St. Marie at the Eureka Theater, Eureka, California.
Come solo or with a sweetheart for a cozy evening of great music – old, new, red hot and blue!
When & Where
Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room
The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
