Shelby Lanterman’s Emerging Artist Series


Shelby Lanterman’s Emerging Artist Series

Hopmonk Tavern in Novato will present Shelby Lanterman’s Emerging Artist Series on the 4th Thursday of each month running through May. In addition to Shelby’s performances, Matt Jaffe, Ari Eisenberg, Lucy Arnell, Kylle Reece, Travis Hayes, Laura Benitez, Mike Annuzzi ar eon the roster.

The Emerging Artist Series features rising singer/songwriters from all over the Bay Area performing acoustically in an intimate setting. The show is well known for the opportunity it gives the artists to tell the stories behind their songs as well as their inspirations and motivations within their craft.

Shelby Lanterman successfully unveiled the series in 2015 at the now defunct City Winery in Napa. The critical acclaim by both artists and music fans motivated Hopmonk to get behind the series. Lanterman is excited to bring the show to Novato and introduce a wide-range of Bay Area artists to music fans in the North Bay. “Hop Monk doesn’t only serve Marin, but the entire North Bay. The motivation behind this show is to not only introduce people to the incredible music being made here in the Bay Area, but to let people get to know the artists who created it.” notes Lanterman.
