    The Crimson Moon Cafe is conveniently located on the historic Public Square of Dahlonega, Georgia. It is housed in the c.1858 ''Parker-Nix Storehouse'' - the second oldest building on Dahlonega's charming historic square. The building was operated as a traditional southern ''general store'' for nearly fifty years, but has been recently renovated to become the home of ''The Southeast's Most Intimate Music Venue''... The Crimson Moon Café.

    The nationally known listening venue and restaurant now offers a full service menu for breakfast/brunch, lunch and dinner - with an organic coffee house, beer, wine, and handcrafted cocktails! Live, multi-genre and mostly acoustic music is offered most Wednesdays through Sunday evenings as well as some weekend afternoons, with reserved stage-floor ticketed seating for most events. Patrons who wish to simply enjoy great food, conversation and atmosphere are invited to walk upstairs to enjoy the New Orleans style fresh air porch overlooking the square, two private dining rooms, or the 'step back in time' bar in the c. 1858 ''Half Moon'' saloon. For reservations for show seating, please visit www.TheCrimsonMoon.com or call 706-864-3982. For dinner reservations or special / group events please call 706.864.3982

James was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), who also produced Bronson’s most recent, self-titled album.
