Open Mic Night Blues Makes Me Happy

  07/01/12 18:07, by , Categories: BFMN Exclusive, Dan Grigor, Video, Sound Advice , Tags: 12-string guitar, acoustic, call for info, dan grigor, mike mountain, open mic night, tesoro

In our continuing efforts to get you off the internet and out there playing music live we have visited a few JAM nights. This article is not about that. This one is about Open Mic Nights.

What’s the difference? Generally speaking, it is simply what it says: an open microphone on a stage in front of people. People get up there and play a song, read a poem, tell a few jokes or whatever is right for the venue and their talent.

Get Up, Get Out, and JAM, Part 3: Ponderosa Bar and Grill

It wouldn’t be honest to just tell you success stories. Sometimes Jam nights don’t work. It doesn’t mean that it was a bad Jam or a bad bar or a bad night. Sometimes there just aren’t enough listeners to go around. Local bar and grill owners are hit hard in this economy, just like everyone else. They count on an ever-shrinking entertainment budget of working stiffs who can afford a few beers and maybe a dinner night every so often. If their food is great they will be able to pay expenses; if the sale of booze can pay the rent and provide profit, that is a successful bar. That is also hard work. Once such local eatery, Ponderosa Bar and Grille on Shadel Rd. in Menifee,CA. has been a measured success over 17 years of service in the shape of great down-home food, reasonable drink deals, plenty of pool tables and great entertainment. With live bands and dancing Friday and Saturday, and karaoke Sundays and Thursdays, Ezra at the Ponderosa has been providing a great stage and dance floor to top local bands and tours, helping to hone a generation of young bands’ talent and professionalism.

February 26 was a very special anniversary for Dan Grigor and me, and we decided to start the day in a very special way: clinking wine glasses over Sunday brunch at the Meritage, overlooking the vines of Callaway’s Vineyard and Winery. What an exquisite choice that turned out to be!

The Pour House in Paso Robles Puts the Special in Specialty Beer Bar

In November each year, Dan Grigor gravitates to the Paso Robles area to share some “quality time” with a group of dear friends, laughing and drinking their way through Wine Country in a tour bus…equipped with a stripper pole. Last year, we launched a new tradition – and helped finance the adventure – by arriving a little early to make new friends and let his 12-string ring in some of the lovely venues in the area.

Though it may not be the fanciest location we played, at our first stop at The Pour House, just off the 101, we found a “Tap Room and Beer Shoppe” where the vibe is absolutely as good as it gets.
