The Open Mic gave beer drinkers a chance to tempt their tastebuds on 7 Sins beer. Check out the video.
It was a first-time event, from 7 – 10 p.m., Thursday, February 25. Jim Cuneo of Ripley was the emcee. While beer and wine poured, a half dozen musicians showed up with their best guitar, harmonica, drumming and vocal skills.
Adam kicked off the night singing and playing original music on guitar and harmonica.
Local favorite, Joe Nolan of the Mulligan’s went solo. Joe played acoustic guitar and led Irish drinking songs – I don’t know about you, but I cannot think of anything better than having a pint and a sing-along on a Thursday night.
Steve Spears, owner of Dunkirk Homebrew, sang a few tunes accompanied by his friend Matt on a homemade, one-man drum – pretty dope.
James Paolello, jammed on his guitar, absorbing the crowd. He later teamed up with Jim Cuneo, on harmonica and keyboard.
One guest summed it up – “the first Open mic night at Sensory Winery was awesome from the acoustic guitar guy (Adam) with the cool boots to the home-made one-man drum set-up (Matt)…it was all good. and can u do Led Zep at open mic? oh hell we did (James Paolello jammed). hope to see you next time.”
If you haven’t been to Sensory, you are missing out. It is becoming a space for hanging in RL (real life) with many shows on the docket. Next up is another Open Mic, not to mention the current art show by Casey Brink.
The open mic is Thursday, March 10 from 7-10. All acts are welcome – musicians, comedians, poets, free-thinkers — pick your poison. Performers get a free pint (or glass of wine).
Speaking of pint, Greed, an American Brown Ale; Wrath, an IPA; and, Lust Cherry Wheat are all on tap. And we now have growlers, so you will never run out of good beer – peace out, rabbit.
