San Francisco’s Red Room Orchestra will perform on Saturday at a special outdoor fundraiser show produced by The Chapel and folkYEAH! The Chapel’s parking lot will be transformed into an intimate supper club.
The ticketed, seated dinner show, catered by the venue’s restaurant, Curio, which reopened in mid-June with a new chef and menu. The producers are building an outdoor stage for the occasion and Red Room Orchestra will play the music of “Wild at Heart” & “Twin Peaks.”
Tickets include admission to the show and a prix fixe dinner, and will be sold as tables for two or four attendees. Prices range from $250 to $450. Money raised will benefit the Bay Area’s Independent Venue Alliance. Attendees will have to wear face coverings.
The Red Room Orchestra, under the direction of bandleader Marc Capelle, recreates soundtrack and score selections from David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” universe as well as selected music from the films “Fire Walk with Me,” “Blue Velvet” and “Eraserhead.” It got its start in 2017 at the request of The Chapel’s manager, Fred Barnes, for a one-off show. In 2018, the Red Room Orchestra debuted at SF Sketchfest, and has since grown into a popular draw in the Bay Area. Saturday’s performance includes Marc Capelle, Allyson Baker, Tom Ayres, Pete Straus and Larry Carr with special guest Kelley Stoltz.
“The chance to perform and in the process supporting and helping to safely re-open these scenes at what is our essential point of origin means the world to us,” Capelle said.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the performance will begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at The Chapel’s website.
