HEY LOOK!!! A blog post!
I know it's been quite awhile since I've posted, but as they say, life is what happens when you are busy making plans. Hopefully things are leveling out a bit and I can start posting more regularly again.
Well the First Tee Open Mic has been back up and running for a couple of months now and we have just about gotten it back to the momentum we had before I took a holiday break. As always we have excellent music and our listening audience is growing as well. The Early Bird Special has been effective in getting musicians out to play by eight o'clock which keeps the Happy Hour crowd around to listen for a while.
If you haven't heard about the Early Bird Special here is the deal. If you are on the list and ready to play before 8:00 your are eligible for the Early Bird Drawing. Around 9:00 we do the drawing. Included in the give-away has been Steak Dinners and Hamburger Dinners courtesy of The First Tee, $10 Guitar Center Gift Cards courtesy of Joe Standefer, and SwirlyGig Drink Holders courtesy of Ms SwirlyGig herself Sid Tincher. More prizes will be added as they come available.
So aside from good fun, good friends, and good music, you could walk away with a prize just for showing up early to play. Come on out and join us every Thursday night won't you?
Here was the lineup last Thursday at the First Tee.
David Myers opened the show
Mitch Tiffin followed.
By the way, David and Mitch have both already won FREE steak dinners.
John Renner took the stage next
Followed by Van Buchanan
It was great to see Vivien Micheloni back on the First Tee stage
even if I did neglect to get a picture of her preforming.
Bruce Ross was next up
and got John and Van to join him for a little tribute to the late great Levon Helm.
It's always a pleasure when Buddy and Sherry Allen join us.
Hunter Nelson played some of our open mic favorites.
First timer on the First Tee Stage was Chris Monteverde
although definitely no new comer to preforming.
And bringing up the bottom of the list was our friend Rhew Fletcher
See, this is what I mean when I say we have great music at The First Tee Open Mic. If you been, I don't need to tell you. If you haven't, you are missing out. We'd love for you to join us.
Hope to see you out and about this week.
