This isn't an open mike as you might think of it. George plays piano for those who cover show tunes & jazz standards.

Not really your "singer-songwriter-guitarist" kind of open mike… at all.

Having said that, the audience hangs onto every syllable, and truly appreciates vocal talent.

Open mike with George at the piano to accompany those who only sing, like me. Styles range from old standards, to show tunes, to rock and roll and even the occasional country tune. Very friendly crowd. Quieter before the cabaret show in the back room lets out.
