El Cajon, CA — October 8, 2008 — Earlier today, The Hotel Cafe Tour announced that Taylor Guitars, one of the world’s premier manufacturers of high-end acoustic and electric guitars, has been named the “Official Guitar of the Tour”. Taylor Guitars, known for its blend of beautiful and musically inspiring guitars, is already the choice instrument for many of the tour’s past and current artists.
“Like the Hotel Cafe Tour, Taylor is committed to fostering emerging artists,” commented Bob Borbonus, director of entertainment relations. “We’re proud to share the stage with such talented musicians and to be a sponsor of this tour.”
Named for the coffee shop-turned-venue in LA, The Hotel Cafe Tour is now in its fourth year. For the first time ever, this year’s tour will feature an all female lineup of eighteen singer-songwriters ranging from established musicians, Ingrid Michaelson and Rachael Yamagata, to rising stars Meiko, Thao Nguyen, Kate Havnevik, and Brooke Fraser. With so much talent, and a focus on community and camaraderie, concert goers can anticipate impromptu jam sessions and collaborations.
The Hotel Cafe Tour is set to kick-off on October 9 in Santa Barbara, California. The tour will stop in thirty-three North American cities as it makes its way to Europe for twenty tour stops. Beginning October 9, visitors to Taylor’s website will have the opportunity to enter an exciting giveaway for a Taylor DN5 acoustic guitar. Later in the month, visitors to the site can also check out performances from the tour.
