Alone Together is looking forward to playing at IL CAFFE RIFUGIO this coming Saturday July 5, 2014 @ 6PM! Outside on Stage Red.
Alone Together is a meeting of two guitarists. A meeting of two open minded individuals who share a huge amount of love for music. We are learning and growing every time we play together. We play songs from the standards repertoire, old American tunes, and tunes from our idols. We aim to share whatever inspires us and hopefully create an experience for the listener that is also inspiring for them.
