Tyrone Wells is one of our favorite pop/rock songwriters. He's doing TWO shows here this Saturday. These will be part of his "Closer Than Ever" tour featuring just Tyrone, his guitar, and voice singing his songs and telling stories. Don't miss this rare opportunity to see a national headliner in an intimate setting like this. Purchase tickets for both shows to be entered into a special lotto giveaway.  One winner will receive a special merch package from Tyrone Wells!


Where and when was your first show? My first solo show was in 2000 at a little coffee shop called McClain's in Fullerton, CA.

What band/artist would you consider to be your main influence? There are so many... I don't know that I have just one. Here are some artists I love: Stevie Wonder, Patty Griffin, U2, Coldplay, Jon Foreman, James Vincent McMorrow... and the list goes on and on....

What is one of your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experiences? Driving through the night, ten hours straight, in a blizzard, to get to a show in Omaha, Nebraska. We got thirty minutes outside of Omaha and they shut down the road. We still had eight hours to get to the show, but alas, we could not.

Favorite Food: I am a lover of so many foods it is impossible to answer this. Currently, I can't get enough of Pho.

Favorite Drink: Coffee (and red wine)..I think I have a problem. I can't just give you one answer...

If you were to have a film/movie based on your career, which actors or band would you select to portray yourself? Bruce willis and Jim Carrey's love-child... I have no idea.

What two words would best describe your music? Up lifting... or is that one word? I'm cutting it into two.
