Open Mic, September 25, 2014
The performing arts association at the Art Center started their weekly open mic and performing arts show on Thursday, September 25 at the Art Center. The show had 10 acts that included 13 local performers.
In the spirit of support for all the performing arts, Taylor Hoch kicked off the show with the opening soliloquy from Shakespeare's Richard III. Jay Jernigan then joined Taylor on the stage and they performed several of Taylor's original musical compositions. After that, Drew Tucker and Ron Hackett played a jazz duet and Jay returned to the stage to join them for a jazz jam on Gershwin's I've Got Rhythm.
Also performing that night were singer/songwriter Len Bullard, keyboardist and singer Sarah Weeks, Old Nick and the Gypsies (Sarah, Kameron Jones, and Josh Passon), singer/songwriter Greg Mitchell, violinist Caitlin Varkin, and guitarist and vocalists Gary Tipper, Robert Foster, and Rose Pyatt.
