Art’s Bar & Grill
413 Coleman Blvd. Mt. Pleasant.
Twice a week, on Sunday and Monday evenings, local musician Everette Bigbee (of Big J. Hosaphat) sets up a small array of amplifiers, guitar stands, effects pedals, and microphones at Art’s Bar & Grill. He hangs a small sign-up sheet by the main window — an invitation for anyone with an instrument or a voice who feels like playing a few. Bigbee — a highly-accomplished guitarist and vocalist himself — has been doing this routine for over three years. With the unusual variety of guest players (or entire bands) who show up, it never gets stale. Bigbee often jams with his guests, and his enthusiasm and technique are at the heart of it all. —
