The Songwriter Serenade is a weekly show held every Tuesday night at Matt Denny's Ale House Restaurant & Bar.  Over 280 artists have now played the show!  It starts at 7PM and goes to 9:30.  Performers play their original songs for the audience on a lovely patio with a warm, inviting atmosphere.  There are all styles and genres of music, with 4 or 5 different songwriters each week.  The music is on a patio which is covered and has plenty of heaters for a warm, cozy evening during the winter.   During the summer, we pull back the canvas roof and play under the stars.  It is located at 145 E. Huntington Dr. in Arcadia, CA 91006. There is parking around the back. 




To  Ric Taylor who is one of our artists

He won the ASCAP Jay Gorney Memorial National Songwriting Competition

Ric Taylor

The prize is a $1,000 and they will fly him to New York City to accept the award at the ceremony in December. The song he wrote is titled, "Ruby Johnson".  It's a true story about his yearly travels to Washington D.C.  Ric would go to D.C. for a couple of weeks each summer to teach white water rafting.  While he was there in D.C., he loved to go to the museums.  While having lunch outside the museums one day, he met a panhandler named Ruby, who was an interesting character.  Ric befriended her and would have lunch with her everyday for the week he went to the museums. This went on for about 4 summers in a row. He then wrote his award winning song titled with her name.

Great job Ric and keep up the good work crafting very original songs!
