Welcome to the Eleventh Edition of Mike’s Barn most beloved show. This year we get back to the barn in a new location well suited for the Mike’s Barn feel of things. Lots of seating, bonfires and acres of land to roam. Our host this year is Jack Lugas and his brothers whom all grew up at the old Mike’s Barn. Jack has a wonderful home and great property out Grafton way and has graciously offered to host the show this year.
MARY BRIDGET DAVIES
The Broadside Story
By complete coincedence on Memorial Day weekend in 2005 we where enjoying a small Sunday jam session at the Barn when one by one the Queen Bees of the Cleveland blues and jazz scene came for an unexpected visit and a small audience of 50 guest or so where treated to an amazing magical evening of music. Then fifteen year old Ricky and eighteen year old brother Rob Muzik where the only drummer and guitar player respectively in the house that night and ended up playing wonderfully for nearly four hours without much break. Ki Allen, Becky Boyd and Mary Bridget Davies later joined by Charlita Anderson-White and even later by gospel singer Kim Bryon, Rob & Rick’s mom. The following spring and summer I chatted with Dot Martin and Chris Kuwamoto whom had been in the audience that night and we hatched a plan to recreate the magic of that evening. Here we are eight years later and the show has been a hit ever since.

Table reservations are a good idea if your wish to be seated with a group. Reservations have been an important means of raising funding for these shows and help keep ticket prices low. This year the funds are going to be used to help Mike buy his own home (home with a big old barn). The down payment fund is slightly out of reach and with a little boost we may just get there! We accept donations for reservations for any amount you would like to donate. All other seating is first come first serve. Be sure to let us know how many seats you will need.
