Get ready to lose those winter blues! “Toast & Jam” begins at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 18, upstairs at the Brickyard Brewing Company (BBC), 432 Center St., Lewiston. This jazz-jammin', blues-rockin', poetry-reading event is back by popular demand and continues through March 25.
Singer-songwriter Dale Campbell hosts the five-week series of open mic entertainment, which is open to all singers, musicians, poets, actors, dancers, comics and performance artists.
Performers sign up as they arrive, and play on a first-come, first-served basis (three songs).
Most of the people who perform at open mics are not professionals. They do it for the love of it, and part of the fun for the audience is never 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 BBC.”
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 Lewiston Council on the Arts and sponsored by Lewiston Brickyard Pub, LCTV and Cataract Printing. Call the LCA at 716-754-0166 for more information.
