‘Toast & Jam’ ready for another season of open-mic entertainment in Lewiston

LEWISTON – The popular series “Toast & Jam” begins another season from 7 to 10 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Brickyard Pub, 432 Center St. The jazz-jammin’, blues-rockin’, poetry-reading event continues through March 21.

Singer-songwriter Dale Campbell hosts the six-week series of open mic entertainment, which is open to all singers, musicians, poets, actors, dancers, comics and performance artists.

Performers sign up as they arrive, and play on a first-come, first-served basis.

Most of the people who perform at open mics are not professionals. They do it for the love of it, and part of the fun for the audience is never knowing what to expect.

“It’s a great atmosphere,” Campbell said. “By the end of the night, it feels like a sing-along at a friend’s house. Some performers are really good, and others are just there to have fun. And everyone loves the delicious food they serve at the Brickyard.”

Highlights from Toast & Jam are featured throughout the year on Lockport Community TV, so performers are invited to take advantage of this opportunity to enjoy a moment in the spotlight.

The program is presented by the Lewiston Council on the Arts and sponsored by the Lewiston Brickyard Pub, Lockport Community TV, Cataract Printing, Lewiston Music and Vic Garcia Music.
