The Gov Cup
Yes, we enjoy checking out live music at different places. Recently we found a place called the Governors Cup in Salem, Oregon located on Court Street. This place is quite the ‘hole in the wall’ coffee house. On Friday nights, it’s a great place to go. Especially if you like listening to live music.
We make a trip there when we can. The first thing to do is grab a cup of jo, Sit down, and take in the tunes while listening to live music on a Friday night.
It’s a rare thing to find a coffee house these days unless you’re in a college town. Yes, Salem can be called a college town due to its proximity to some smaller community colleges.
The larger towns that have major colleges located within its boundaries are probably more viable places to have a coffee shop. In any case, this place is pretty small but has a great ambiance that goes along with it.
Here’s our view from Friday, the 17th of July, 2015.
How To Find The Gov Cup
If you’re in the area, you can plan a date night at the Governors Cup Coffee House and even get a sneak peek as to who is going to perform for the upcoming Friday by going to their Facebook group.
Check out our good friend Tim Snider live this Friday night at The Gov Cup! Blending musical styles from around the…
If you like listening to live music that is upbeat with a couple covers but mostly original songs, you’ll love the Tim Snider Band. They came with only a three-piece band but sometimes are a 4 piece with a female singer to add.
I also love that Tim does a practice called Looping. It’s a process of playing a few bars of a part and recording it into layers. It’s much like what Jimmy Fallon does with his iPad.
