If you wish, bring a drink for yourself, and/or a snack to share, but we’ve always got plenty of all of those on hand!
All are welcome (bring the kids, friends, family, people off the street, whatever)! Our house is family friendly (we’ve got 3 kids and plenty of room, so feel free to bring the family), easy-going, friendly, and open to all! If you don’t know us yet, come on down and make some new friends!
The Sunset Saloon is a house concert venue in Westwood (near the YMCA on Portage.) We’re open to all. Feel free to pass along the event info, bring friends, bring your kids (our kids will thank you), or just come by yourself and make some new friends! Admission is by donation, which goes directly to the artists. Most folks pay $20, but any hard-working musician wouldn’t turn down more and will take whatever is comfortable for you to give.
Please RSVP for the address and more information!

Scott Cook is exactly the kind of performer that the Sunset Saloon exists to support. He’s a brilliant songwriter, a really engaging performer, a heck of a good dude, well-loved and respected by other musicians and those in the know, but criminally underrated among the masses. Everywher he goes, every time he plays, people are recruited into the fan club, and this is your official invitation to become one of the lucky folks who know about this great talent and have seen him up close!
Like many other great songwriters, my initiation into the cult of Cook came via the passionate and powerful Corin Raymond. Corin is a friend of and huge fan of Scott’s songs. On his now legendary double CD package, Corin and the Sundowners covered, “The Lord Giveth (and the Landlord Taketh Away.)”
Speaking of his first listen to Scott’s album “Long Way to Wander,” on a road trip with Jonathan Byrd, Corin says, “I popped it in and it wasn’t just good – it was great. The writing was beautiful. The songs were seamless… This guy was the real deal. He’d done the work but there was no trace of the effort. Scott’s songs were so well crafted that I’d listen to that same album years later and hear rhymes I hadn’t noticed… I don’t know anyone who writes with the heart and humility that Scott does. I look to Scott’s songs to remind me why I do what I do… They’re like hands being offered to lift us up.”
If you know Corin Raymond, you know that he means every word, and that he knows grat songs. He’s never, ever steered me wrong. Come and make up your own mind on June 30!
