Just what is a CoffeeHouse?
The term "coffeehouse" refers to the 1950's Beatnick Era, when small urban cafes became youth culture music venues for the likes of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Pete Seeger.
The George, Washington version of the coffeehouse, which began in 2004, has become a popular once-a-month concert venue. The George Community Hall hosts the George, WA CoffeeHouse, which features great live acoustic music by Pacific northwest bands. Live Bluegrass, Country, Western Swing, Folk, Cowboy, Vintage Rock & Roll, R&B, Americana and Roots music all find a home here. Enjoyed by young and old alike in an inviting, family-friendly atmosphere, the CoffeeHouse in George makes an awesome, cheap date, girls night out, or family fun night! Wear your dancing shoes, and we'll make sure you have room to bust a move!
The CoffeeHouse concerts happen monthly at the George Community Hall from October through April each year. Admission is just $5 per person. Kids 12 and under get in for free, but must be accompanied by an adult. Fresh-baked refreshments (coffee too) are served at half-time by the George, WA Georgettes at the GCH Kitchen. Bands are paid with a hat-pass: suggested donation for this is $8-$12 per person. Concert start-time is 7 p.m. (unless otherwise noted). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for best seating.
