Chris Cortez at Blue Bamboo

Blue Bamboo Music Center for the Arts has become an amazing new venue that features top musicians. Blue Bamboo is part venue, part recording studio, and part art gallery!  Located at 1905 Kentucky Ave in Winter Park, Fl, just off Fairbanks between Formosa and Clay, this unique new space offers live performances most evenings, state of the art recording studio, and gallery space.  More concert hall than night club, they're open to all ages and present all kinds of music, theater, dance, and spoken word events.  They're also available for private parties.  Browse the schedule for tickets or call  407-636-9951 for more information.

The venue has limited seating so you are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance or make reservations.  Tickets are also available at the door, based on availability.  Most shows begin at 8PM and the doors open at 7.  They offer beer and wine, soft drinks, and light snacks. 

Chris Cortez is a talented local acoustic guitarist and I have sketched him before. In the low light, I got to play with my digital drawing tablet to try and capture the light and mood of the evening. On Tuesday nights there are ongoing acoustic guitar sessions that feature Chris Cortez. Best of all there is now cover, so this becomes a great sketch opportunity.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
