O'Leary's 1000th Open Mic Night This Wednesday

Brent Mason is hosting his 1000th Open Mic Night this Wednesday (June 22), and the Saint John music community is celebrating in a big way. In honor of Brent’s achievement, several local musicians will take the stage and cover their favorite Brent Mason song. Confirmed performers include Mike Biggar, Jessica Rhaye, Clinton Charlton, and many more. The entire evening will be filmed by Hemmings House Pictures, who plan on making a documentary about the event. The fun starts at 10PM, and it should be one heck of a party, so I look forward to seeing you all out!
