Who would have ever imagined that Doc’s Bar on Tybee would evolve into a listening room for songwriters?
But that’s what happens every 2nd Sunday from 6 to 7:30 when the Savannah Songwriters Series present another showcase of original music.
Sunday, a packed bar listened quietly and respectfully to every tune played by Dan Dunnagan, Todd Murray, Pete Love and Thomas Oliver.
Dan, making his public debut, impressed the audience with such beautiful songs as “Boat for Sale. ” Everyone is looking forward to his returning to SSS.
Todd was fresh off the Savannah Stopover, and he demonstrated why his stylistic playing and lyrical storytelling have made him such a valued contributor to the Savannah music scene.
Pete once again demonstrated his guitar skills as well as his songs that cosmically and comically look at life and its meaning.
Thomas Oliver introduced three new songs, ranging from a bluesy saga of life on Atlanta’s Ponce de Leon Avenue to an up-tempo, almost pop love song.
The Savannah Songwriters next showcase is at Johnny Harris restaurant Sun., March 24, at 6, with Zach Smith, Craig Anderson, Roy Stalnaker and Roy Swindelle.
