Hotel Cafe at the House of Blues Anaheim: A Review from Stevie and Cheryl!
Stevie and her BFF Cheryl give you their take on the Hotel Cafe Concert at House of Blues Anaheim, — the closing concert for the US!
This blog/podcast is a review of the Hotel Cafe Tour at the House of Blues Anaheim on 11/15/06– the closing night. Cheryl Gilbert is one of my BFF’s– part of the "party posse" that exists for my group of friends. When something’s cooking, Cheryl’s always game to give things a try and she had heard me talk a lot about Joshua Radin and the Hotel Cafe tour. She was impressed enough from the CD.
The bill included :
Meiko (a singer/songwriter who happened to work at that House of Blues!), ( Photo courtesy of Meiko)
Schuyler Fisk — great voice and an interesting presentation. (photo courtesy of Schuyler Fisk and Hotel Cafe)
Sara Bareilles — smoking hot jazz inflected voice and presentation
Cary Brothers Courtesy of Hotel Cafe Tour
Cary Brothers— go beyond the first couple songs and listen to some that give you a snapshot of a much greater range
Joshua Radin — with 6 different podcasts on him, I think that I have said a lot already!
Alexi Murdoch— a surprise guest that was amazing.. and he is an apt fit. (photo courtesy of Alexi Murdoch)

Rachael Yamagata— her a capella work is fabulous!! She’s got an amazing voice and so much going.

Jim Bianco– the wild man of the tour– not that they all aren’t a bit outside the box.
There were more people on the tour– a woman playing the most amazing violin and Jonesy.. who has an amazing voice too– though I can’t find a single photo of her .. though I might have missed it.
Take a listen to what Cheryl and I say about the different acts/performances and you might find some new tunes that you need to listen to as well as add to your CD and/or Ipod collection. I certainly have.
