Music News – Reason to Celebrate!

January 26th, 2009 by Temple City Tribune

munews1-22Arcadia locals, THE ALUMNI, will be rockin’ the house at Matt Denny’s Ale House this Sunday, Jan. 25th.  It’s all part of the restaurant’s 10th ANNIVERSARY BASH, to thank customers for their loyal support. Veterans of the greater San Gabriel Valley, The Alumni are the quintessential Classic Rock band with a capital “C”.  Members hail from popular local bands, Pecos, ISOR, The California Band and the Fabulous Satellites, and have backed recording artists Warren Zevon and Jackson Browne.  Really!  The festivities start on Matt Denny’s patio at 1pm with ROADHOUSE RON on acoustic guitar & vocals. The Alumni take the stage from 4-8pm, and there’s a good chance proprietor Matt will treat patrons to a drum solo!  So don’t be square, be there!  More details below…
