What’s Happening at Outpost!!

Outpost's 2014 Spring Season opened Thursday March 6 with a sold out concert by the always exciting and engaging Matt Wilson who was here this time with quartet members Jeff Lederer, Chris Lightcap and Kirk Knuffke (who was here this fall with Allison Miller's Boom Tic Boom). it was a great show. Then we had our first Roust the House Teen performance Night (Kidd Psycho and Kahlila Hughes) followed by a great night with Women & Creativity at the Inpost Artspace Gallery opening— a group show featuring Kate Carr, Jane Lackey and Natalie Smith and the terrific film, Girls in the Band at 7:30pm.

Education Spotlight


All classes are taught by the Outpost team comprising saxophonist, Kanoa Kaluhiwa; drummer, Sharon Eldridge; trumpeter, Paul Gonzales; and our most recent addition to the teaching staff, César Bauvallet. We aim to build positive attitudes, trust, teamwork, cooperation, confidence, compassion, and a sense of humor, everything you could ever want from music. Both Youth and Adults will perform a recital for family and friends at the end of their second session. It is expected that students will have their own instruments to bring to class. Outpost will provide a piano, a drumset, and guitar & bass amplifiers. Read More »
