Ashford Arms Irish Pub hosts a great open mic every Thursday. This open mic is growing in popularity each week, and this week had two newcomers that found us via www.openmichouston.com. It's always great to see new folks showing up at open mics.
This week Marian Ritter returned to Ashford for her second time on our stage.
Van Buchanan was out and about and it's always a real pleasure when he can find the time to stop in and play some music for us.
David Myers has become a good friend of Ashford's Open Mic and we are sure glad to have him sitting in.
Captian Rick made his way up from Kemah to play for us. Not only did he bring us a nice selection of songs, he brought his friend Ken (who also lives on a boat) to join him on the Jews Harp.
Brandon Jantzen was in the house.
As was Holly Reich.
And let me just take a minute to give a special thank you to both Holly and Marian. Open Mics are so dominated by men that it is always a real pleasure to have some women come out and join us. Thank you!
Josh Wager followed Holly on the stage. Josh is really starting to build a reputation for himself. He will be featured at JP Hops House Hard Times Soup and Music Kitchen Wednesday July 28th. You can catch a full Josh Wager show there for FREE and eat some great home made soups for FREE and enjoy an excellent selection of beer. Check this link for more info JP Hops House
Anthony was a new comer this week and brought some fine vocals and guitars skills to the stage.
Zane was next up and gave us some originals as well as some fun Johnny Cash covers.
Pedro G. has found his way back to the Ashford and it's good to see him back.
Donnie Sands was another new comer. Donnie has a great voice and guitar skills and played some nice originals as well as covers.
Last on the list this week was Vincent DeCarlo. This was Vincents second time at the Ashford and he brings a lot of good talent to the stage.
Many thanks to all of the players and music fans that come out each week and support live music.
