US and Canadian Open Mikes - by musicians, for musicians

The Kennebec Wharf

Open Mike
Every Sunday at 5pm

Hosted by Christine Poulson

1 Wharf St
Hallowell, ME
Great open mic lead by Ms. Poulson. No sign up… Chris asks that new players find her and introduce themselves and talk a little about what they do. Then, Chris hooks them up with members of the house band or other musicians available to perform over the course of the evening. Chris is usually joined by Stevie Jones, guitarist/bass, and Lance Burpee or Alfred Lund on drums. Every week, there is a featured guest which always makes the evening more interesting!! Chris is known to run a tight ship and concentrates on not only the players, but whether or not the crowd enjoys the act. Using that information, she may or may not limit the performance… A word to the wise… Plan on staying for the evening!!!

Great show Chris!

I was just there with friends and my sister Susan, supporting friend Heather Hardy… I wish it were a little closer I'd be a regular, but we thoroughly enjoyed the evening including your own amazing voice and guitar and all the great musicians there! Even the food was good! (Haddock sandwich) Nice to even have a decent dance floor! Very different set up than any I'd been to but it seems to work great! Heather seemed quite impressed and had fun too!
