Many wonderful musicians have shared their music on the Fiddler's Dream stage over the years. Our open stage began over twenty-one years ago! Our Open Mic Night is an Open Stage Night, as we are completely acoustic, so there aren't any mics...just a whole lot of good music, and an appreciative audience! One song rotation, playlist in order of arrival, doors open about 6:30 pm, first rotation starts at 7:00 pm. A fun evening of sharing music no matter if you choose to play or simply listen and enjoy! There's a variety of styles and instruments, spoken word and storytelling, so come out and join us - hope we get to see you Thursday! And please share with your friends! Admission by $5 donation at the door. Open Stage Protocol
Friday February 16 ~ NEELY ~ James Koan ~
8:00 pm, Nestled in the heart of Music City (Nashville, TN), in a day and age where musical content makes most parents cringe, enigmatic husband & wife duo NEELY emerge with a grit and energy that integrates the region's eclectic musical soundscape into an array of well-crafted anthems featuring spine chilling harmonies and hook-laden lyrics, in a family friendly fashion. Jeremy states, “I’ve always been a rebel at heart. The longer I’ve trudged through life the more I’ve come to understand that the modern day outlaw is one who conducts himself in honor, integrity, and truth. Those are themes I find lacking in the music industry as a whole these days.”
When asked what genre their music is, Jeremy answers, “We aren't rock, we aren't country, we aren't gospel\christian, or any other label you try to put on music...we are NEELY. Quite honestly, I think if you look at anyone’s playlist you will see that same eclectic nature.”
Jeremy & Kaci make their home in Nashville, TN with their four daughters, when not on the road, but their roots run deep in small town America. Jeremy grew up in Cosby, MO (population 121) and Kaci grew up in Bennington, KS (population 600). With a down home attitude and a love for both music and people, Jeremy & Kaci aren't out to build a "fan base" but rather a world wide family.
9:15 pm, James Koan, vocals and acoustic guitar. James is a songwriter, and will be doing a mix of originals and covers from several different genres, including folk, singer/songwriter, rock, alternative, indie, pop. His influences include Jon Foreman, Ed Sheeran, The Beatles, Colony House, and The 1975.
Admission tonight is $8. Doors open at 7:20 pm.
