This pair of accomplished singer / songwriters entertain you with tall stories between short songs - banter that is equally engaging as their music.
With a solo set from each artist, they will cap the show with a joint performance as well.
It doesn't get any better than this - two acoustic musicians with a long list of albums and an even longer history of successful shows.
Now Fulks and Cleaves make their way to an intimate supper club in Newport Beach where the food, the sound and the atmosphere are the best in the business - Campus JAX.
This is a Sunday show, making the experience even more accessible, with free parking, all ages, full menu and fast service at your table.
6 pm show - Doors at 5:30

Slaid Cleaves: After 25 years of performing, the characters in Slaid Cleaves' songs live in unglamorous reality. They work dead-end jobs, they run out of money, they grow old, they hold on to each other (or not), and they die. With an eye for the beauty in everyday life, he tells their stories, bringing a bit of empathy to their uncaring world.
The Austin Chronicle declared, "...there are few contemporaries that compare to Cleaves. He's become a master craftsman on the order of Guy Clark and John Prine."
Robbie Fulks: This 30-year veteran of folk, country and bluegrass material brings a solid reputation to the stage, as indicated by his two Grammy nominations. Many of his compositions are silly, funny or spoof songs, and he has a dedicated audience who appreciate his creative lyrics and inside jokes.
Greil Marcus, the rock historian and critic, has called Fulks "a bona fide classic of Americana."
Expect an impressive matinee of fretwork and songcraft.
Free parking, all ages, full menu, one entree required (it's a supper club).
