Living Room Coffee House to feature Flair-Sumoto trio on Saturday

Flair-Sumoto is a trio made up of “Flair” – songwriters Roger Fluet and Lee Villaire – and guitarist Scott Matsumoto.

Lee & Roger are prolific songwriters of blues-infused alternative pop, featuring clever, emotional lyrics and catchy melodies layered on foot-tapping, head-bopping rhythmic backdrops. Seasoned performers, the duo have released 7 CDs between them and perform regularly with their full band, cleverly called The Flair Band. Scott Matsumoto is a finger-style guitarist who covers a wide range of styles; everything from Michael Hedges to Tommy Emmanuel. The musical collaboration with Scott and Flair grew out of several jam sessions and their mutual appreciation for Belgium ales. Always inspiring, as is the music they perform together!

Doors open at 6:30 pm and all are welcome to sit, relax, meet and mingle. Performers (music, poetry, spoken word) are encouraged to sign up for one of the 15-minute slots. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Performances start at 7:00.

It is our goal to create a wholesome relaxing atmosphere for people to gather, listen and perform music, poetry and the spoken word. Our stage is set for you to perform in front of a supportive audience. A $5 donation is suggested (students may bring 2 cans of food as their donation, to help support the local St. Vincent De Paul food pantry).

Coffee, tea, water, soda, and juices are available, as well as popcorn and a variety of yummy baked goods from our kitchen. As always, there is no charge for snacks.
