Gerry Spehar and Friends: In 1986, Gerry Spehar dropped out of a thriving Colorado & Nashville singer/songwriter career - sharing stages with Townes Van Zandt, Boz Scaggs and...

... Merle Haggard, playing the Grand Ol Opry, signing with legendary publisher Buzz Cason - to take a day job in LA and raise a family. In 2017, job done, he dropped back in by releasing I Hold Gravity at the Coffee Gallery - the first of four highly acclaimed albums backed by I See Hawks in LA and an all-star cast of Nashville cats. The reviews have been consistently great: “gorgeous and timeless West Coast Country” (I Hold Gravity); “Spehar is a mesmerizing songwriter and this is an important album, a masterpiece” (Anger Management); “an EP that Neil Young would be proud of” (Lady Liberty); “a songwriting triumph, enormous in both sound and depth” (Delta Man).

Paul Lacques (guitar and lap steel) and Paul Marshall (bass) of California treasures I See Hawks In L.A. and Double Naught Spy Car are Los Angeles stalwarts and Coffee Gallery regulars who, along with jazzer Erinn Bone (trumpet and keys) make up a rocking eclectic band with the chops to bring Spehar’s many musical styles to exquisite life. The stories, songs and band seamlessly travel from Country and Country Rock to down-and dirty-Bo Diddly to sublime folk to jazzy blues to dancing rockabilly without missing a beat, and with infectious thought and joy.

Don’t miss this eclectic songsmith and rockin' four-piece band.
