Tuvalu is a family owned and run Coffeehouse and Art Gallery. Venturella got his start as a professional musician performing in similar independently owned coffeehouses back in 1994. "It's a great pairing when I can perform at a venue like Tuvalu. They're commitment to their community with 100% fair trade and locally roasted coffee in combination with their support of local artists resonates well with me, my brand of music and my fan-base," said Venturella.
This will be Venturella's second time performing at Tuvalu Coffeehouse and Art Gallery. In support of his seventh independent solo album, Moments Vol. 1, Venturella will bring his acoustic folk/pop style of original music to the evening's performance. A sound somewhere between John Mayer and the BoDeans, Venturella writes songs about the peaks and valleys of life, love and relationships.
Beyond Venturella's performance, Tuvalu offers a variety of music and entertainment each week from old-time string bands to Celtic music as well as an opportunity for budding entertainers and performing artists to showcase their talents at the regular open mic nights.
