Germano's Open Mic - December 21




Open Mic at Germano's is eager to welcome you on January 18. These monthly gatherings are hosted by Mary Reilly and bring together singers and song lovers from the Baltimore/Washington area.


The theme this month is "Singer's Choice," with special guest Lonny Smith.


As always, reservations are appreciated so that Cyd and Germano can provide the appropriate level of staffing.  You may begin the evening as early as 6:00 if you're coming for dinner.  Sign-up is at 7:00 and the music begins at 7:30.


Germano's hopes you will attend  this month's open mic.  If you haven't joined before, you're missing a really great evening of entertainment.  Why not bring a couple of friends along with you?  Singers and non-singers alike are always welcome.


Hope to see you on the 18th!
