Well, that was fun? I’m sure I’m not the only one going a little stir crazy after being cooped up inside for the past two or three days thanks to our friend, Nemo, so Monday might be the new Saturday as far as getting out is concerned. If you’re not afraid to party on a school night, then throw on those Bean boots, hike up those Party Pants, and get ready to crush any case of cabin fever.
Start things off by checking out some free bluegrass and country twang downstairs at Empire Dine and Dance in Portland where tonight North of Nashville continues their Monday night residency with some catchy originals and toe-tapping cover tunes! It’s free, fun, and and gets underway right around 8 o’clock, so stop on by and check it out.
Get funky and jam out with some of the local scene’s best players down at The Big Easy on Market Street in Portland as another edition of the one and only Players Ball takes over the stage and brings the funk. Every Monday night a handful of local cats come together to play not only as the house band for the event, but also as a band that will play tunes with audience members as well. All you gotta do is grab your instrument and hop on stage. It’s an event for musicians and music lovers alike, so check it out starting right around 9 tonight.
If you’re north of Portland tonight do not miss a very special show at Slates in Hallowell. This evening’s event will most likely be an amazing journey of musicianship that will touch upon elements of funk, soul, jazz, and R&B as the Kenya Hall Quartet teams up with special guest Nigel Hall for an evening of tunes. Things get underway right around 8 o’clock and you won’t want to miss a single note, so if you’re in the area, make sure to check it out.
