Described by its organizers as, “One bus, one band and a bunch of friends on the road,” the 4th annual Hotel Café Tour, which begins October 9th, has named Heil Sound as the official microphone supplier. Heil Sound PR 35s have been deemed the microphone of choice for the eclectic lineup of singer/songwriters which includes Rachael Yamagata, Meiko, Priscilla Ahn, Ingrid Michaelson and Kate Havnevik.
The tour, named after Los Angeles’ famed Hotel Café music venue, was created four years ago to bring the vibe of intimate coffeehouse performances to fans all over the world. The Hotel Café has evolved from a small coffee shop and has become one of the premier singer/songwriter showcases in the country. And while the small and intimate feeling is a prominent component of the shows on tour, venues have increased in size to include theaters as well as several House of Blues clubs. The Hotel Café Tour finishes its US run at the end of November with a show at the Fonda Theater in Los Angeles. A full itinerary for the tour can be found at www.thehotelcafetour.com.
