Tune in often for constant changes in the Web Site."

Bob Stane is always looking for GOOD acts, especially those who still have unclaimed souls which can be acquired. Remember, this particular Central American country and The Coffee Gallery Backstage are the last entities allowed to recruit indentured servants. Tourists are warned to sign nothing. If you are wearing ruby slippers, "stay tight inside them."

Loud and rowdy rock groups may be teased but won't be asked to play. Except in the wading pool of Alligator Lagoon, while dressed in chicken suits, of course.

SPECIAL EVENTS? Rent The Coffee Gallery Backstage for your birthday party, exhibit, lecture, meeting or any kind of gathering or celebration. Don’t dust and clean your house, just come on in, have your bash and leave. Some evenings available when we don’t have shows (or have your event earlier or later) and mornings and afternoons are almost always available. If you need live entertainment a lot of our local acts will be glad to be your indentured singing servants for a few hours.

Just think: nationally famous entertainers at your party. We comfortably seat 45. Business Meetings? Yes we have wireless for computers, etc.

Even the front area can be reserved for you and you can invite 100. Food and drink of your choice. Ours or you can cater. No limits.

You will find our rental fees extremely reasonable if you compare them with rooms at hotels or country clubs. And wouldn’t you rather have our cozy atmosphere than a sterile meeting or banquet room?
