Every first Thursday of the month for the last several years, a bit of magic has taken place on a little corner stage during Open Mic at Jim’s Ultimate Guitar Shop. The lights go up and participants of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds bring their acoustic instruments, a couple jokes and a little courage to share with the audience, made up of both musicians and music lovers. For all in attendance it is a chance to slip off the shoes and kick up a little fun for an exhilarating evening full of raw, local talent! Even if you are just sitting back enjoying the performances, be prepared to join in on the fun as some of the performances encourage audience participation…stomping feet, clapping hands, a couple hoots, nothing but good times.
