George Sarah

Join us for a special concert featuring electronic musician George Sarah performing a live solo set with video projections by VJ Franz K at lavish Broadway Bar. Also appearing are The Amber, a three part harmony-driven original acoustic group from New Zealand, Australia and America, and ukulele player Jessica Gerhardt.

In his thirteen years as a professional electronic composer and multi-instrumentalist, Sarah’s music has been featured everywhere from CSI to the Beijing Olympics. Sarah has eight full length releases to his credit, and his music has appeared on over 40 compilations. He’s performed at UCLA’s Royce Hall, The Getty Museum, and Grand Performances, appearing with a diverse group of artists ranging from Bebel Gilberto to Goldfrapp (performing his original compositions from a bank of synthesizers alongside live string section, bridging the normally discrete musical worlds of electronic and classical.) His old band THC even appeared on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. George Sarah, it seems, gets around. 

The Broadway Bar’s Gothic Revival building adjoins the renowned Orpheum Theatre, once host to legendary entertainers, burlesque queens and jazz greats. Broadway Bar has the posh feel of an elegant 1940′s supper club, with a 50 foot centerpiece circular bar, multi-tiered cocktail lounge, sumptuous décor, and smoking patios with unrestricted views of Historic Broadway. The mezzanine, complete with it’s own bar, lush lighting and separate smoking balcony is a coveted setting for private parties and special events.

    I had a nice evening- a variety of music and I enjoyed meeting the folks I had a chance to talk with. Would definitely do it again.

    FYI Just received a note on parking-
    Hey Paul, my name is Jake and I'm the person that booked Geoge for Broadway tonight. Just to let you know, there is a parking lot right next door to the bar that is most likely free tonight. I would suggest that everyone just park next door. Feel free to contact me at [masked] if you have any other questions.

    I just reread the notes from George that said live music won't start until 830/9- 745 seems a bit early as I am not inclined to twiddle my thumbs during that period, so I will probably aim for 815/830. If anyone else gets there earlier keep a look out for each other. And- no... I have no idea how you would do that unless you write meetup on your forehead or something... which of course we wouldn't do because we are adults who are theoretically sane(ish). Just keep your eyes out. You might meet some interesting people. :)

    Since it can be a dodgy area, I would hope we can watch out for each other as we return to our cars. I am not a fan of ladies (or anyone really) walking down dark streets by themselves- so if we communicate with each other, perhaps we can be useful to each other. Personally, I'll probably park somewhere on the street and leave by 1130 (as I have to work in the morning). I look forward to meeting you. (and just for the record- I am not the organizer- I am just someone who signed up who was asked to bring a sign with me and try and provide a point of contact.)

    Hey... this is Paul checking in. I expect I'll be there around 745 tomorrow evening- not sure what I'll wear but I look more or less like my photo but without the facial hair. I'll make a meet up sign- it will probably be with magic marker as my printer is dead at the moment. There are 31 of you so I can not promise to save 31 seats. That will be a first come first serve sort of thing. It is a bar with "maybe 250 capacity" so take heed and plan your arrival with that in mind. I've never been there so I know as much as you in that regard.

    Some info from George that might be useful.

    "No reservations are needed, it's a bar but has tables and 1920's decor, the venue gave me the night so i've put the lineup together so it's fine that the meet up group wants to display. I think there will be a fairly large crowd. The venue is not very big maybe 250 capacity so it should get full. I don't go on until 10:30 but live music will start after 8:30-9 PM. Parking should be easy street parking all around the area."

    I'll give a heads up as to when I'll get there- should know by that morning and I'll post the time and my phone number in case you have questions. I think it will be a nice evening.

    I'll be there holding a meetup sign- don't have all the details yet from the organizer but will post more info as I have it. Check in here the morning of the event and I'll make sure to post my cell phone and any pertinent info. It should be a fun evening.

    Thank you for this George. I read the 2010 article about you in The Way of Beauty and was taken with this "He aims for beauty that elevates the souls of men to God." Welcome, Brother.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
