ANNUAL OPEN MIKE NIGHT
Saturday, January 15, 2005
Each January, the Hard Luck Café clears it's booking calendar to make room for an evening of "open mikers". This concert provided the audience with an array of talented artists whose varied styles pleased the musical tastes of everyone in the room!
Thirty performers treated us to their specialties — we heard soulful blues, political satire, quirky ditties, engaging traditional and contemporary folk music, stunning instrumentals and original compositions by area singer/songwriters.
Tonight's Open Mike Night was dedicated to the memory of our friend, Dick Morrison. Dick loved the Hard Luck Café and the Open Mikes in particular.
Profits from tonight's concert are being donated to support tsunami relief efforts.
Featured tonight were:
Den & Jerry
Matt Van Glad & Warren McKnight
Larry Moser and Mary Nagle
Now that was a great evening!
