Two top talents in Americana music get together Saturday night with Chauncey Bowers and Jodi Siegel joining forces at Coffee Gallery Backstage.

Singer and songwriting guitarist Bowers combines musical passion and playfulness in his music. The self-described “garage folk” artist writes songs ranging from a tongue-in-cheek romp about waking up tied to a bed in a strange room with a psycho woman to a heartfelt tribute to a fallen friend. His sound has been compared favorably to John Prine and Randy Newman, and he plays guitar like nobody’s business. Visit

Guitarist and singer-songwriter Siegel is a native of the blues hotbed Chicago. Now based in LA, she produces a sound blending blues, pop, R&B and jazz. Besides performing all around Southern California, Siegel has taken her act across the country and overseas. Her songs have been performed by artists including Maria Muldaur, Marcia Ball and many others.

She has opened for acts including Albert King, Kris Kristofferson, Robert Cray and Robben Ford, among others. Visit

Music starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at Coffee Gallery Backstage, 2029 N. Lake Ave., Altadena. Tickets are $20. Call (626) 798-6236 or visit
