Our performers rely on tips and merch sales (that’s how they get paid), so you should bring some extra cash for them (and maybe buying refreshments).
This month, Rick Diamond will be returning, and Wendlo will be playing for us for the first time! (more info below)
The North Fulton Community Charities food pantry has a continual need for food and staple products. Here is the list from their website as of October 2nd:
– Dried Beans 1 lb. bags.(Really Need)
– Spaghetti 1lb.
– Pasta Sauce/Tomato sauce/paste
– Meals in Can (Spaghetti’os, Ravioli etc)
– Canned Meats (tuna, chicken, spam etc)
– Flavored Rice/Pasta
– Ramen Noodle Packs
– Canned Beans, Black, Refried, Garbonzo
– All toiletries (toothpaste, shampoo, soap etc.) families cannot use food stamps for these so need is high.
Rick Diamond has always been a writer: short stories in third grade, co-writing his first structurally sound song with classmate Steve Hagler in eighth grade (“Follow Me” — imagine two little boys telling the world to follow them. Yeah, right), writing a few tunes for his rock band in his late teens and early twenties, writing a couple of novels before he really had anything to say, writing a couple of screenplays and then trying his hand at a TV pilot which led to writing nine more episodes to find out what happened with those characters… and over all those years, completing a hundred and something songs about love, life, politics. and whatever was bothering him at the moment.
Rick has played in venues from Illinois to New York, from Florida to Tennessee, one Carolina to the other, Texas to Alabama, and here in Georgia for more than a few years. His songs can be sampled and downloaded at: Rick Diamond Reverbnation, and listened to in better fidelity at: writersroomcafe.com — but only if you have great big, studio monitors for speakers on your computer (seriously, don’t do the phone thing).
Wendlo is the Atlanta-based folk-pop duo of Jacob & Chelsea Hamilton. Jacob & Chelsea met in 2011, when Jacob moved to Chelsea’s hometown of Anchorage, Alaska. They soon found they shared a passion for music, and started playing open mics together whenever they could. Jacob proposed to Chelsea in October 2015 at their first official show, on the outdoor patio at Boulder Creek Coffee in Buford, Georgia. The music they played that night became the inspiration and the playlist for their eponymously-named Engagement Party EP.
