The Songwriter Serenade is a weekly show held every Tuesday night at Matt Denny's Ale House Restaurant & Bar.  It has been going for 8 years and we've had over 450 artists on the show!  It starts at 7PM and goes to 9:30 every Tuesday night.  Performers play their original songs for the audience on a lovely patio with a warm, inviting atmosphere and a cool vibe.  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.

We say Goodbye to Wendy

Wendy suffered a brain aneurysm on June 5th and passed away June 13th, 2019.  She has been a wonderful fan of the show and such a burst of happiness anytime she was there.  We will miss you greatly Wendy! Thank you for being a part of our lives and thank you for listening for so many years.
