Guy Forsyth & The Hot Nut Riveters!

Guy Forsyth returns to Coffee House Live, this time to present “The Hot Nut Riveters” — Texas’ Original Recession Era String Band. Featuring an all-star cast of ringer musicians playing all-acoustic instruments, The Hot Nut Riveters traffic in a strange and heady homebrew of genres and influences mining the deep, rich veins of American traditional and popular music forms. And, they’re funny 😉

Their debut studio album, “Moustashe Girl”, features 7 voices, countless instruments, and at last count, 5 hilarious commercials. Expect classic American tunes as well as new original material from some of Texas’ finest!

For more information, check out:

**NOTE OF THANKS: This show is supported in part by a grant from the Texas Commission On The Arts

No cover charge. Donations welcome: suggested donation $20 (cash or check), helps cover cost of artist, refreshments, facility — but not required.

Monte Warden & The Dangerous Few!

Monte Warden (of The Wagoneers) presents his new project –> The Dangerous Few. All original music done in the classic crooner tradition. As much Jim Reeves as Sinatra. Monte’s written quite a few of these types of songs over the years and never had a place for them. ‘Til now. Tony Bennett meets Ray Price. 100% Original songs. 1000% Coolsville. Nothin’ else like it, here or anywhere.

CHUCK PROPHET & The Mission Express!

(Special WEDNESDAY show)

CHUCK’S BEEN PLAYING MUSIC AND TOURING AROUND THE WORLD FOR A WHILE; RELEASED OVER 10 LP’S ON DIFFERENT LABELS. MAYBE 11, OR 12; LIKES TOURING / HE MUST. Chuck Prophet describes his new disc BOBBY FULLER DIED FOR YOUR SINS as “California Noir.” He says, “the state has always represented the Golden Dream, and it’s the tension between romance and reality that lurks underneath the surface in all noir films and paperbacks, and that connects these songs. Doomed love, inconsolable loneliness, rags to riches to rags again, and fast-paced violence are always on the menu on the Left Coast.”

Chuck Prophet shapes his restless career with inimitable subtle flair: a vivid parade of razor-edged one-liners camouflaged in a slack-jawed drawl, songs about heartbreak and everyman heroism, drenched in twisted lines of rude Telecaster.

No cover charge. Donations welcome: suggested donation $25 (cash or check), helps cover cost of artist, refreshments, facility — but not required.

“Coffee House LIVE!” is a community outreach effort of St. Andrew’s.  Everyone is welcome!

Several times throughout the year, we will “open” the coffee house for an evening to present live entertainment — primarily various kinds of eclectic music from bands and/or solo artists, as well as perhaps other forms of entertainment, such as poetry, comedy, etc. We intend to host a variety of local, regional, national, and international artists.  Although this is a church outreach effort, all entertainment is completely secular (not religious-based).

We serve coffee and snacks.  You are also welcome to bring your own food & (non-alcoholic) drink, if desired.

The Warren Family Center (within St. Andrew’s) is warmly intimate and acoustically balanced, allowing artists to connect with you — the audience — and showcase their talent. Tables and chairs are plentiful, and there is not a bad seat/view in the room.

There is never a cover charge to enter. However, donations (to help offset costs of artists and refreshments) are welcomed. These events are expected to last no longer than 90 minutes or so, providing you an “early evening” distraction.  All ages are welcome, including well behaved kids (and adults).  Children are to be accompanied by an adult.  Please supervise your kiddos, and keep in mind that this is a “listener-focused” room.

At these events, you will also have an opportunity to learn more about St. Andrew’s, if you so desire.

Seating is 1st come / 1st served, with doors opening 30 minutes prior to the show.


alternative listening venue (family friendly)
intimate concert experience
artists connect with the audience
artist meet n greet possible
casual, relaxed, and no $ required


We expect that, for most shows, you may photograph and/or record in a limited fashion, as long as it is not disruptive to the patrons or talent.  Some artists MAY impose restrictions on recording/photography — these details will be posted for each show accordingly.


St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church is a place where all kinds of people come together for a common journey – a journey of seeking, discovering, knowing and sharing God’s love in Jesus Christ. No matter where you are in your own journey with God, even if one hasn’t yet begun for you, we would be privileged to walk with you along the way.  More about our beliefs…
