Open Mike Night happens Every Wednesday at the Hotel Vernon "Ship Room" Kelley Square in Worcester, MA. We offer 20 to 30 minute sets for your performance from 8:00 to 11:00pm
Our target musicians are the new players, and part time players who need a relaxed venue to work out your chops. Although, we sometimes get a "ringer" to show up and play. That's always fun! We provide a PA system and an upright piano on stage. Theres NO cover charge and PBR draft beers are only $1
This is truely a great room to play with excellent acoustics.
This historic room, built to comemmorate the end of prohibition in the 1930's, was designed to look like the hull of the Mayflower complete with lighted portholes and a ships wheel donated by singer/actor Burl Ives. It was a frequent watering hole for slugger, Babe Ruth back in the day. The "Ship Room" is still in tact in its original form and the acoustics there are wonderful due to all the aged wood. The bar is decorated with nauticle murels painted by local T&G illustrator Al Capp and Al Banks who penned the nationally sindicated Lil' Abner comic strips. For more details and photos visit: www.hotelvernon.com
But don't just take my word for it. Check out the comments posted below. The players Love it and I think You will too!

Chewey opened up the night with an early set. Followed by Eric Hart who's stuck in the dog house again. We saw a couple of firsts tonite.
First time I ever saw Berkeley play "Plugged In" sacriliage! He was demonstrating the sonic differences of Sean Fullertons awesome Gibson guitar plugged in and miked up with a Shure SM57. The tone was infinately better unplugged and miked to our ears. Sean went on to play some instrumentals that way. Nice! We even "allowed" him to play the blues! Miguel Melendez played a new original that was fantastic! Tom Ewart did my favorite version of Over the Rainbow. Rich AD Leufstedt did Christmas toons. The thing I like about the Ship is you can stop, and experiment. No pressure to "perform" It's a free-form format. Come on down and try it yourself.

That was interesting.
Tonight (11/28/2007) was an eclectic mix of players and audience. Eric Hart launched the ship with cover tunes and some of his great originals. Jim Lloyd made his second appearance on the ship and was well settled in. He's developing nicely. Stalwart Tom Ewart does a beautiful rendition of Amazing Grace using harmonic tones. Then, we were oncec again graced with Ringer, Sean Fullerton who is honing a new solo carreer. Rich A/D Lufstedt hit the deck with stuff he'll be preforming this Sat. at the Hotel Vernon Holiday Uke Bash. Jim Berkeley Played Banjo Uke and guitar with a great mix of tuneage. He'll be doing a solo concert at the Ship room on Sat Dec. 15. BE There! Next up, Chewey with his own interpretation of musicality. Ari closed out the night But wait....theres more!..........
Sean Fullerton needed to noodle out a brand new tune on his Uke. There was a crowd of young girls and they swooned over him so he hung in there and played till way past midnight. Thanks for that Sean! Also In the audience was Lou Falcone and Jeff Chapman of the Mason Tyler Trio (my favorite oldies band). Next, the Holiday season begins. Come on down and see what happens next....
