Put Sound Bites Grill on your list for a very special engagement Feb. 1 where you can meet an artist whose works can be found on custom shop instruments from the legendary musical manufacturer Gretsch® Guitars, as well as auction pieces for non-profit organizations such as the Fender Music Foundation, Guitars for Vets, Sweet Relief Musicians' Fund, and the Susan G Komen Foundation.

Sarah Gallenberger is a self-taught artist and fine crafter from Milwaukee. She began crafting at the age of 6 with her mother, and continued the hobby into adulthood, as she earned a BA in Anthropology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

During college, Gallenberger worked at Cream City Music as a marketing and special events coordinator, where the shop's owner Joe Gallenberger (also her uncle) suggested that Sarah try her hand at painting some of the unfinished guitar bodies in the shop.

Excited for the opportunity to blend her passion for music with her talent for art, Gallenberger painted a "strat" and a "tele," which sold to buyers in Texas and the UK. She quickly garnered attention for her designs as requests for more custom pieces began coming in.

"Rock and roll has a heavy influence on all of my work," says Gallenberger, who also spent three years as an A&R rep for a music publisher. "Whether I'm painting skulls on a pepper grinder or paisley swoops on a Les Paul, I am always looking for an excuse to bring music and art together. My experience working in the music industry has helped me establish a strong network of musicians and professionals that have helped me along the way.

"When she's not painting, Gallenberger can be found working on special events with the non-profit organization Guitars for Vets, a Milwaukee-based national program that provides free guitars and guitar lessons to injured and traumatized military veterans.

Sarah has painted several Jackson® and Fender® guitars that will be on display at Sound Bites Grill and she will be there personally to unveil a very special custom-painted Fender® guitar which will be raffled off to benefit the Fender Music Foundation on March 2. Winner need not be present to win.

Also on continuous display in Sound Bites 'Guitar Gallery' you will find works by Phoenician artesian Mark 'Cubby' Hall as well as instruments autographed by many of the world's most famous Rock and Rollers such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, BB King, U2 and the Rolling Stones.

Most of the guitars on display are for sale and a percentage of the proceeds are donated to the Fender Music Foundation, which is a music charity funded by people who want to change the state of music education, people who believe music is an integral part of society and want to make music more accessible to everyone.

Sarah will be available to talk about her art from 6-10 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 1, in Sound Bites Grill's Guitar Gallery.

Also performing Jazz Feb. 1 will be Susannah Martin's Jazz Trio from 8-11 p.m. Enjoy Musical Art, Sarah Gallenberger, live jazz and stay for dinner.
