New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ KOFFEEHOUSE MUSIC)
Listed by Film.com as one of the top 10 parties during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Koffeehouse Music
featured nearly 30 singer/songwriters and bands on January 23, 2011 at the Koffeehouse Chateau (www.parkcitychateau.com). The event is believed to be the largest evening of independent music conducted during the Sundance Film Festival.
Katharine Rutt, Field Producer for the Sundance Festival After Dark series at Park City Television, said this about the Koffeehouse Chateau music event: "I've been attending the Sundance Film Festival now for 14 years and have attended 100s of events. The Koffeehouse Chateau event was without question the best live music experience I've attended during all my Sundance years. I'll definitely be back next year!"
"The Sundance Film Festival started over 30 years ago as a place to bring independent filmmakers together and have them heard," says Koffeehouse founder Jeremy Koff. "Koffeehouse Music shares the same spirit of providing a voice to independent artists - in this case musicians - to be heard by industry."
Now in its second year, the "Koffeehouse Chateau" event attracted nearly 200 celebrities, musicians, industry executives, and passionate music listeners to a private location in the hills near Park City. The event featured musicians from as far away as Australia and as close as neighboring Salt Lake City.
