                  Monthly Open Mic

        The Open mic has found a new home

The Open mic every 2nd & 4th of the month starting around 7:30pm at the Phoenix Bar & Grill 4 Ayer Rd. in Shirley featuring our own band, Never 2 Late. As always we expect a huge turnout. Known as the best open mic in the area because you can play as a solo, duo or full band. Musicians of all ages and experience welcome. There is a great menu from one of the best restaurants in the area.. I supply the PA and electronic drum kit. Drummers must bring their own sticks. Hope to see all there if not to play but to just listen to some of the best music the Nashoba Valley has to offer. There is no cover charge to come and listen or play. Thanks and we hope to see you there.
