With the holiday hustle bustle finished, I’m good and ready for some post-holiday R & R. I can think of no better way to relax and re-wind that at the Tempe Center for the Arts’ (TCA) Finally Friday series.
Finally Friday brings local singer-songwriters who have performed at the TCA’s Songwriters’ Showcase series. This week’s singer/songwriter is Blaine Long. I wasn’t familiar with him, so I went to his website and was pleased with what I heard. His music is kind of folk/American roots. He has a nice voice and I really like his guitar strumming style. Blaine also has a real pleasant manner and I suspect that he connects right away with his audience.
Yes indeedy, sitting in the intimate surroundings of the TCA lounge, enjoying a drink and tasty appetizers while listening to great live music, is my idea of a terrific way to chill out. Give it a try and I think you’ll agree.
Find your favorite way to enjoy some much needed R&R in this week’s events taking place in Tempe. View a complete listing of Tempe events, or call 480-894-8158.
