Checking Out Mt. Pleasant Music Showcase and Jam at Haydee’s

On Saturday, I checked out the Mt. Pleasant Music Showcase and Jam Session held at Haydee’s on Mt. Pleasant Street. The event began at 4 p.m. and was scheduled to run until 7 p.m. While I was unable to stay for the full event, I really liked it and will be going back. The Music Showcase is hosted by Frank Agbro, who in addition to being a musician known a Franko is also one of the Mt. Pleasant Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners. You can learn more about Franko and hear some of his music at www.frankojazz.com or clicking the image below.

The event is open mic, which allows local musicians to sign up and perform along with anyone else interested in sharing their art with those in the house. Another of the groups that performed on February 7th was Hellfire and the Brimtones, whose genre is described as Country/Americana, though I think it also had a bit of a folk flavor to it too. You can hear three of their songs by clicking on the image below.

I understand that the Jam Session in Mt. Pleasant is a monthly event, and will be on the look out for the next event for those interested in checking it out in person.
