Organized by the house band, The Abandoned House Band, featuring Ben on bass viol and guitar, Louise on vocals and hand & snare drums, John on guitar and Richard on harmonica, every Friday night is different -- and every Friday the music gets better and better.
Last night, a saxophone player showed up and absolutely blew the roof off. It was so unexpected and such an amazing addition to the band. What makes it even better is the obvious enjoyment of the four members of the house band; the more the merrier.
Last night, we had not only the saxophone player show up but five other singers, four accompanying themselves on guitar and another doing some jazzed-up jazz numbers, performed. Did I not mention it's an open mic kitchen party? Even yours truly provided a brief break from the music by sharing a story. You get all kinds at this evening.
Music starts at 7: 30 but get there early to get a seat. I recommend going for supper, or at the very least, the plate of nachos to go with your beverage (which can be pop or water but also wine or beer).
If you're tempted but coming from out of town, there are a couple of places to stay in Pugwash so don't hesitate -- and if you stay over, you'll get to check out the wonderful farmers' market the next morning.
