We had a fantastic evening at Stadz, with Spotlight Star Englishman John Locke leading the way, playing some tunes he'd never done before, including on e particularly appropriately inappropriate one. Kids, just cover your ears.
We've had a great couple of months, and we're now officially back to being open till 9pm on Mondays!
Thanks so much to everyone who came out and continue to support live music. We're so grateful. See you next week!

There's no better way to celebrate a birthday than with friends. I was so great to perform with Spotlight Star Gabrielle Johnston. We kind of "grew up" together starting in 2013 as we were both getting our feet wet at the Gatsbys open MIC nearly every week. I've been so proud to see her progress and the success she's had. Plus, she kinda kicks ass!
Thanks to Alex and the crew for everything - that cake was terrific! And thanks to everyone who continues to come out on Mondays to celebrate the music and relationships. We've got a great thing going. More to come next Monday with Spotlight Star, Englishman John Locke!

What a night! Spotlight Star Dan Orr showcased his talent and humor, and we had a bunch of other great music, including yet another first-timer, the exuberant Shanna Chamberlain!
Thanks to everyone for being there, and to Randy Carnes for fashioning Rick Barr Music facemasks. How cool!
Next Monday is Spotlight Star Gabrielle Johnston....and it's my birthday! Yay!

It's really been super fun lately on Mondays at Stadz, we've been blessed to hear a lot of truly good musicians playing new stuff, both covers and originals. We got more of that with Spotlight Star Tommy Lee, and his very special guest, Ron Jae! Tommy puts together amazingly unique versions of well-known songs and always creates such a nice vibe. That was a treat. We also had yet another first-timer, Clay Webb, who drove a heck of a long way, and really impressed everyone. Gotta love it!
Thanks to all the staff for taking such great care of us. It was a busy night, and they worked hard to ensure we were happy.

We had another solid night of music, with Deirdre Barrington headlining as Spotlight Star! She rocked for a half-hour, then we got to hear several more musicians do their things, including first-timer Christopher Dutton, who was playing his VERY FIRST open MIC. I love that! He was nervous but really good, and we hope he'll keep coming back.
Thanks to everyone who came out, we're back next week with Spotlight Star Tommy Lee!

We were off for a few weeks, but came back strong for our three-year anniversary! We had a great night, with loads of talent, headlined by Spotlight Star Dominic James.
I want to thank everyone who has supported Stadz and our event. We had no idea when we started just how good this could be, and have been blown away by it. Especially during these challenging times, it's so good to see people come out and smile! We're going to keep it going, every Monday. See you next week!

What a night at Stadz! Along with Spotlight Star Jeremiah Suter (and his brother, a Stadz first-timer), we all got a huge surprise when our dear friend Hank Arbaugh showed up! It's been a long time, and great to see he's doing well.
It was packed through most of the evening, thank you to the staff for keeping everyone happy, and Happy Birthday to Mary Fitch! See you all next Monday!
