Tuesday Night Open Jam Hosted by Darrell Barr
No longer is blues dominating LB’s Pub Tuesday Night live music slot.
Darrell Barr is the new face and new host taking over the vacated niche.
One of the first changes Barr made was to revamp the format. Instead of inviting special guests for a one-hour show followed by a jam, the country-roots singer-songwriter is hosting strictly an open stage.
“If you have a guitar or whatever instrument you play, bring it and sing a song. Come see the host and discuss what you’d like to play. Songwriters, bass players, guitar players – even a comic would make a great variety show,” says Barr.
The acoustically driven stage is open to every genre – blues, roots, folk, country, rock, R&B and world to name a few.
Familiar with this style of entertainment, the Edmonton resident hosted an open stage at the now defunct Sidetrack Café for over a year.
Open stages, he says, are stepping-stones to the future. They are priceless opportunities for musicians to express themselves and to meet diverse musicians with the right chemistry for future projects.
