Trying to describe Brave Combo’s music requires a pretty extensive vocabulary – at least when it comes to musical styles. For the past three decades the Denton, Texas based quintet has perfected a world music mix that includes salsa, meringue, rock, cumbia, conjunto, polka, zydeco, classical, cha cha, the blues and more. They are America’s Premier Dance band and a rollicking, rocking, rhythmic global journey — offering what one critic recently wrote, “Even if you come for the party, you’ll leave with something of a musical education.” From festivals and fairs of all varieties across the globe, rock clubs big and small, colleges, roadhouses, dances, and cultural centers, Brave Combo has charmed countless listeners and won avid devotees. The band has won two Grammy Awards and been nominated for their work 7 times. http://www.bravecombo.com

FAQs – Frequently Asked Questions
Stay tuned for future events, which should be on occasional THURSDAY evenings. “Like” us on Facebook @ Coffee House Live @ St. Andrews. Typically, doors open at 7:00pm. Entertainment @ 7:30pm sharp! No cover charge (donations welcome). Open to the public/everyone.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You remember the date of our next event, and you just come! It’s that simple. No advance tickets are required (or available). There is no cover charge…ever! Just come on out and join us. (donations are welcome)
WHERE / PARKING
St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church — in the Warren Family Center.
5308 Buffalo Speedway @ Bissonnet.

If our lots are full, overflow parking is usually available directly across Bissonnet in the ABC-13 KTRK-TV parking lot (for most events)
“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.
WHAT SETS US APART
alternative listening venue (family friendly)
intimate concert experience
artists connect with the audience
artist meet n greet possible
casual, relaxed, and no $ required
OTHER “RULES” AND REQUESTS
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.
MORE ABOUT ST. ANDREW’S
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…
