2Ality – With Steves Grimes & Stusser

June 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$15.00

THE MUSICALITY OF 2ALITY

Steve Stusser and Steve Grimes have been friends and musical partners for longer than theyʻd probably want to admit.  Letʻs just say that the telephone had just been invented (not the cell phone variety).  From day one thereʻs been something of a special alchemy in the music that flows effortlessly when these two guitarists/songwriters are together. Sharing the same first name, the same birth month, the same brand of guitar, and the same wide spectrum of taste in music, it seemed only natural to name the duo “2ality”. From folk to funk, and from blues to bossa nova, the Steves cover a lot of musical ground. If there was a genre to categorize their music, it would have to be “kitchen sink”.

Steve Grimes was born in Baltimore, Md at a very young age. In early school years, his interests were equally divided between being a nerd and being a geek. Both vocations came naturally to him. When he was 12 he mowed enough lawns to save $20 and bought his first acoustic guitar. After a year of playing Peter Paul and Mary songs, he heard “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” and mowed enough lawns to buy his first electric guitar for $25. Both guitars needed repair soon after purchase, and Steve put his Geekness into action and fixed both guitars.

In 1972 Steve quit his job as a draftsman for Boeing and built his first instrument. In 2020 he celebrated his 1000th instrument.

Thanks to Ray and Sharon for providing a great place for so many talented artists to do their thing. The music is always top notch, the food is incredible (Scallops w/ Risotto is my favorite), and it's always a great time.

We went to see some live music. There's a pricey cover charge but the music was really good. The food was excellent. Delicious pork loin with cream sauce. Good portion size of antipasto. Wonderful cheeses and salami. Very delicious seafood pasta. The prices were reasonable. We picked a great Italian Amorone wine off the shelf. The corkage was pretty steep, 12.00 given we had appetizers, full dinner and 20.00 cover. But the wine was fantastic and a fair price. Lots of wines from most important wine regions. The shelves are full and the prices fair. We'd definitely return. Service was very good especially given it was a full house. Small venue, quaint and enjoyable.

Close, tightly packed room, but comfortable. Soft lighting, exceptional wine selection. The wonderful, smooth vocalizations of Gail Pettis backed by her talented quartet. Hot and delicious shrimp fettacini paired with a perfect chardonnay. Fantastic. A winner all the way.

Great spot, love the small plate options. Outdoor seating was a great option. My favorite this time was flatbread with goat cheese, figs and balsamic glaze. Yum

They helped make our 8th wedding anniversary so special. Amazing food, excellent cocktails, and such a fun and classy wine shop. I will be coming here more often, and hopefully have time to go see some of the live music soon.

I almost hate to post as this is small and exquisite and I really don't want to share! However, everyone should have this experience; toothsome menu choices just right sized for visiting and music listening. And live music! First time out post covid and I felt like I'd been nervous system detoxed; hallelujah for establishements that are here for us all in the transition time. Thank you to the owners and the musicians!! And saftey is top notch with vaccine proof required; another thank you!
