Get ready to lose those winter blues.
The ever-popular "Toast & Jam" returns to the Village of Lewiston on Monday, Feb. 15. Singer-songwriter Dale Campbell hosts the six-week series of open mic nights, which take place from 7-10 p.m. at The Brickyard Pub & B.B.Q., 432 Center St., Lewiston.
This jazz-jammin', blues-rocking, poetry-reading is open to all singers, musicians, poets, actors, dancers, comics and performance artists. It continues through March 21.
Performers sign up as they arrive, and play on a first-come, first-served basis. Most of the people who perform are not professionals. Rather, they perform for the love of it. Part of the fun for the audience is not knowing what to expect.
"It's a great atmosphere," Campbell said. "By the end of the night, it feels like a sing-along at a friend's house. Some performers are really good; others are just there to have fun. And everyone loves the delicious food they serve at The Brickyard."
Highlights from "Toast & Jam" are featured throughout the year on Lockport Community Television, so performers are invited to take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy a moment in the spotlight.
Toast & Jam is presented by the Lewiston Council on the Arts and sponsored by The Brickyard, LCTV, Cataract Printing, Lewiston Music and Vic Garcia Music.
