Bridge Street Inn rocks out at Gary Kramer Guitar Cellars

The Bridge Street Inn enjoys intellectually stimulating guests on many different levels. I have exciting news, Jennifer from Gary Kramer Guitar Cellars has given the Inn 2 for 1 wine tasting coupons. Need some hair metal intelectual stimulation? Your host will happily play Van Halen on the record player and over coffee share with you his favorite hair metal stories. After a hairy metal morning at the Inn travel to @garykramerguitarcellars in Paso Robles for a hairy metal afternoon. The guitars, memorabilia, delicious drinks and hospitality are worth the 38min drive:):):)

Bluesy Stephanie plays at the Bridge Street Inn. She wowed the small group of Cambria’s who were fortunate enough to enjoy this special UK artist. Open mic had stellar performances by Allison and Brandon. Followed by an after hours party at Linn’s and Mozzi’s. Ask the Bridge Street Inn about playing a house show.

Francesca’s Word Salad, Brandon Follett and Russell Arnott at the Bridge Street Inn

Francesca’s Word Salad performs, ‘Polly’s Birds.”

Russell is a much better videographer.  I chose this video taken several days after the Bridge Street Inn show instead of using my own footage.

Brandon Follett performs, “What’s that You Say Nose?”

Russell Arnott explains why, “The Best Animal Ever is an Octopus.”

The March 4 show at the Bridge Street Inn was a success.  Francesca’s Word Salad wowed the crowd with her beautiful voice and funny provocative lyrics.  Russell Arnott kept the crowd entertained with his octopus slide show and knowledge.  Brandon Follett reminded folks their food should always have fun before being eaten with his catchy Run Run Pig lyrics.

Enjoy more of the wonderful Frencesca’s Word Salad and purchase her music:
