There’s been a buzz growing steadily around the music scene in a small Westchester, NY community. The local high school hosts what are now a regular “Open Mic” Nights and ever larger handfuls of hopefuls come out to play each time. The musicians are young, but the chops are there, and parents, teachers and townsfolk are remarkably supportive.
In what, with hope, is the first of a series, this initial show focuses on the two student Co-President / musicians and the Faculty person who brought the “Open Mic Night” series to life.

video.google.com is another channel we’ll get this out to once we’re done with the initial episode. That’s a good way for people anywhere to see it (it’s easy to send links directly to the video, and Google’s video will play on just about any Mac or Windows machine).
