Open Mic moves to a new night, Thursday. This change will definitely extend the weekend and get it off to a rockin’ start. Vino Di Sedona’s Open Mic has been a weekly event for local and visiting musicians on Tuesday nights for almost four years. Starting Thursday, Nov 29, Open Mic will be weekly on Thursday Nights, 6-10 p.m. (Due to a previously scheduled day-time event, Open Mic will start late on Dec 6 at 7 p.m., this is the only date Open Mic will start late)

Tuesdays are great, why change a good thing?

Honestly, the answer is simple, it fits our host’s schedule better, he has a day job that starts early in the morning. At first we was unsure how the change would affect things, but now we’re looking forward to the new night.

We look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday. And here’s what’s going on the rest of the week.

Wednesday, Nov. 28, Marie Jarreau will be debuting at Vino Di Sedona, 7-10 p.m. Marie is a singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist that will be playing classic rock covers and some of her own originals, her originals center on positivity and nature.
