I run two regular open mics and others as trials until it looks like they have some momentum. If I ever had a super power, it would be running these events. Who knows why, but maybe it’s because I can’t get enough of hearing others play, meet each other, and collaborate on the spot. And then there’s always the dark horse that completely delights everyone unexpectedly. Several bands, including Take 2 & Call Me in the Morning, Dick York & the Bitchy Witches, One & Done, the Muddy Rudders, and The Racket Downstairs have been born out of them. LOVE IT!
