Get set for a night of country music when veteran A-list actor Jeff Bridges and his band, The Abiders, stop by the Coach House on Thursday, April 24.
Although mostly known for his roles in such blockbusters as True Grit, The Big Lebowski and Crazy Heart, Bridges said that his first passion was playing music. From early on in his childhood, Bridges recalls his mother forcing him to take piano lessons. He quickly grew bored of the piano and quit, but his passion to play music was regained upon discovering his brother’s electric guitar while in high school.
Soon after, he began having early success in movies.
“I was drawn to the path of least resistance, and music took a backseat, but I was still writing all that time,” Bridges says in his artist bio.
As for now Bridges is about to embark on a West Coast tour with The Abiders to promote his latest self-titled album.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $78 and can be purchased, along with dinner reservations, by visiting www.thecoachhouse.com or by calling 949.496.8930. The Coach House is located at 33157 Camino Capistrano, San Juan Capistrano.
