Beaucoup Blue Playing Steel City on April 23rd

Award winning father-son duo Beaucoup Blue will be playing at Steel City Coffee House on Saturday, April 23rd.

Beaucoup Blue is the Americana Philadelphia based duo of David and Adrian Mowry. Father and son have been performing their roots based music nationally and internationally as a duo, quartet
and on occasion quintet. Bridging many gaps in American music, their soulful traditional and contemporary styles mesh into an innovative and authentic sound. Although blues is a staple in their repertoire, they base their love in music from Folk, Soul, R&B, Jazz, Country and Bluegrass. All these interests and influences come out in their original song-writing in a unique way. A handsome range of instruments like six and twelve string guitars, slide guitar, round neck resonator guitar, combined with two soulful voices, encompasses a rich and honest feel, noticeably influenced by familial ties. Hear for yourself two generations coming together
for the common good of great music everywhere.

Beaucoup Blue had previously released two albums: “Out Of The Woodwork” 2003, and “Hearts At Home” 2005. The long awaited third album “Free To Fall”, is produced by Grammy nominated Jim Salamone. The project features a world class rhythm section including Jeff Sheard on drums, Bill Zinno on acoustic upright bass as well as the extraordinary talents of a few friends. A guest appearance of Universal recording artist Melody Gardot, and the ‘Americana Angels’ of Red Molly contributed their voices to this important work in classic proportion.

Beaucoup Blue will be performing at The Steel City Coffeehouse 203 Bridge St Phoenixville, PA with Danielle Miraglia Saturday April 23rd at 8:30 PM.

Awards Beaucoup Blue has received
  • 1st Place Winner of Billboard Magazine World Song Writing Contest
  • Reached Top 40 on AMA & Folk Radio Charts
  • 1st Place Winner of Telluride Blues Competition

Other recognition

Sarah Craig of Caffe Lena America’s Oldest Continuously Running Coffeehouse says of Beaucoup Blue: “...This powerful yet gentle father-and-son duo gets their audience lost in reverie with arrestingly soulful blues-based music. Their original songs blend folk, R&B, jazz, country, and bluegrass together in songs that might be classics, or might just sound like it.”

Sing Out! Magazine.- “Their voices work superbly together, frequently attaining a mesmeric panache that must be thrilling to view in person. Beaucoup Blue is a versatile, imaginative team that has something to say and say it with an adventurous sense of personality from the bottom of their hearts.”

Richard Cucarro from Acoustic Live NYC says- ”David's slide guitar is the first thing you notice. In tandem with Adrian's deft finger-picking it's precision and grace is the aural equivalent of a hot fudge sundae.”

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
