Well folks, it’s been one year since we first began The Roadhouse Series illustrating highlights in the history of Americana-roots music with some of L.A.’s finest musicians. Since our first show, a tribute to Hank Williams, we have explored the music of Buddy Holly, Stax-Chess Records, the Laurel Canyon Sound, the British Invasion and the Bakersfield Sound among many others. It has been a rich, diverse and rewarding experience for the audience and performers alike. In fact, a unique community has formed during these landmark shows.
