Vino Di Sedona is the place to be on a Wednesday night listening to Rick Busbea, Jan 23, 7-10 p.m. If you ask Rick to label his music style, he will jokingly tell you, “Caribbean Country Classic Rock.” 

Sedona’s Best Open Mic has entered into its fifth year and is running strong. Vino Di Sedona and Dan Rice teamed up in January of 2015 to bring an open mic to Sedona and it’s been a total success at creating a fun night for locals and visitors to get together and play, or listen to, a variety of artists. Open Mic is every Thursday, 6-10 p.m. Musicians are encouraged to arrive early.
