Open Mic We Ride Again!

I’m happy to say that the kind folks at The Cave Creek Coffee co have decided to make the investment, to provide a fantastic venue for Open Mic on Thursday nights. We had a few foul ups; no heaters, no announcements, no posters, and the PA crapped out about half way through Rick Strole’s set. Having said that it was a magical night. We had a few new voices and several of the very talented people that have made this, one of the best Open Mics in this part of the country. It was so nice to hear Rick and Al just working through a few Beatles tunes while waiting for their time slot. Barbara jumped in on a few harmonies and it was just plain beautiful.

Raul O’Donnell did Creep by Radio Head without a PA and the room was mesmerized. It’s so enriching to see people like Raul that have grown into performers, right in front of our eyes. But that’s what this is all about. I wish Dave Grossman, the guy that taught me how to run an Open Mic could see the changes that people like Raul, Kevin, Steve and Ernie have gone through, The world is a larger place for them and it can be a larger place for you too! Just show up, sign up and Cowboy up!

If you used to drop by and join us on Thursday nights please tell your friends and family that we are back.
