We are so happy to announce that our new album is FINALLY coming out on July 4th, 2020! It's called American Spirit Blues and although it has taken a long time to complete, it's finally ready for you and it feels like the timing is right.

We miss everyone so much during these crazy times but we are happy to see how our city has once again banded together to help each other.

If you miss seeing Wes’ happy face around town, his band White Lighter is putting on a live show on Instagram @whitelighter, 9pm on Saturday. Drink a kenmore corona and pretend like your hanging out with us at the cop top.

If you’d like to help support any of our bartenders here or at Mr. Zubs or any other local bar, check out this virtual tip jar! Amazing stuff.

open mics SUCK get real talent and pay them......and quit tipping off guitar thief's.......
My guitar was stolen at the Matinee’s open mic last Monday. The host, Brendan Kenney, told me that’s happened a few times there. And then, I sh*t you not, laughed about it.
Tomorrow!
This song goes out to the girl I saw last weekend and I think she saw me to …
yoooo
See you Saturday night...
Um, can you please explain this?
