Open Mic Night With Host TerryLynn Melody (Sarasota-based singer/songwriter)

Please join us for a very special Open Mic night with guest host TerryLynn Melody, a very talented Sarasota-based singer/songwriter!

TerryLynn Melody (sounds a bit like the Indigo Girls and has opened for Deb Hunseder of Halcyon)

Melody began performing as a child in musical theater and recitals, in her hometown of New Bern, NC.  Her mother, a Performing Arts graduate and professional singer, was her role model and teacher. Guided by a need to find her voice an an artist, she began exploring songwriting as a means to tell her story. The resulting songs are an ever growing catalog of original material. She recently produced her first CD "Counting Daydreams"  featuring Country Music Hall of Fame artist Charlie McCoy on 2 of the 12 original tracks spanning country, folk, pop and blues. She is grateful for the audiences who have let her share her stories and songs with them. They have played an integral part in her finding her voice.

Bring your performing arts and share it with us! Guitar, drums, piano, keyboards, spoken word, poetry. First-come, first to perform. Sign-up to perform starts around 7:00/7:15 pm...

Free admission. Rain or shine!

Happy hour specials on select craft beers and wines!
