Songwriters in the Round!

Ugly Mug Cafe, 4640 Soquel Dr, Soquel, California

Michael Gaither and Steve Kritzer are veteran Bay Area singer/songwriters who joined forces as a duo after they first played The Ugly Mug back on a split bill back in 2009. Their show, what they call a "songwriter ping pong match," is a fun mix of original and cover songs, backed by guitars, ukuleles, banjo, and mandolin, with lots of jokes, stories, and audience participation.
