Bidwell House Museum Open Mic Music Fest with The Lucky 5, June 30

Monterey, Mass – June 12 – The Bidwell House Museum is inviting anyone who enjoys live music and who loves to dance to their second annual Open-Mic Music Festival and concert on Sunday June 30th from 12-4 pm.

Whether you are musician who loves to play or a music lover who enjoys listening to a live band, this family-friendly event will have something for everyone! Starting at 12 pm, the first 2 hours of the show will be open-mic for any musician interested in playing. After the open-mic, we will segue into a great concert with The Lucky 5, a jazz band that blends swing and gypsy jazz to create a unique blend of music that appeals to a wide range of music lovers. Enjoy their foot stompin’ sounds while relaxing under a tent in the park-like setting in front of the Museum. If you have a friend who is starting a band or you know someone who just likes to sing, tell them to sign up for the open-mic! Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic and enjoy an afternoon of music. Snacks and soft drinks will be available for purchase. The cost of admission will be $10 per person in advance, guests 18 and under are free. Tickets will be $20 per adult if purchased at the door.
