....Come to the Coffee Gallery, Yes Good St. Bob's house of tunes and share a night with THE SALTY SUITES, They will be playing and singing their originals and classics in one long set for you. The Salty Suites, Chuck Hailes, Chelsea Williams and Oh yeah,Scott Gates return to the scene of the crime to play hard, sing sweet and rock long at the house of Java...

Scott Gates is as close to a musical prodigy on the mandolin as you will ever meet and now plays guitar with the same fire and brilliance. Having performed all over the country and with artists as varied as John McEuen, Nathan McEuen, Kenny Loggins, Steve Martin and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and a virtual who's who of the bluegrass world, Scott is writing music on his own and is bringing many of these tunes to you. Scott appeared last year on the Ellen Show with Steve Martin, recorded with Kenny Loggins on his soon-to-be-released family album, was featured on the Cable TV show Justified with band mate Chuck and toured the US with Nathan McEuen.Partner in this new venture, Chuck Hailes, is one of the top bass players in the country, schooled in classical and jazz bass playing and techniques. Chuck writes his own music and has teamed with Scott to create many new musical gems. With his background in bluegrass music, and degree in the Upright Bass, Chuck sings and plays in a way that is uniquely his own. Chelsea Williams has been writing and performing her own music since she was 13 years old. Chelsea took the stage on her own by the age of 17, performing at clubs and coffee shops. While some of her early songs are still hits with her fans, she has continued to develop as a writer penning nearly 100 original songs to date. Chelsea currently makes her living by playing on the street for tips and selling a home-made demo, having sold thousands of CDs, one-by-one, simply on her own on the street. Her magnetic presence draws them in and her songs set the hook.Come get an early start to the Holiday!

And please bring both ears so we may fill them with music! Check out the Salty Suites on their Facebook page or at their web site This is a young band to be reckoned with. Special Guest: ALEX FINAZZO....Since he began performing at age 16, Alex has become a fixture in the acoustic music scene of Southern California. Playing in groups such as the Blue Creek Band, Scott Gates Band, Soledad Mountain Band and more, he has performed at the region's largest Bluegrass festivals and consistently draws audiences in with his dynamic and powerful flat-picking. His style makes no appologies for his Bluegrass roots, yet has evolved into an eclectic blend of influences rich with heartfelt melodies, impressive technique and a dash of dry wit. With an infectuous passion for acoustic music, seeing Alex perform is akin to joining him in celebration of the power of music to enrich the spirit.
