Musicians are All Aboard at the Station; Playing Blues, Paying Dues, Keeping Roots Alive
Singers, songwriters, musicians and music fans everywhere are encouraged to celebrate the source of modern music: our American roots music of the 20th century.
Bound Brook, NJ (PRWEB) March 25, 2006 -- Singer-blues harp player, Nasty Ned will host "American Roots Open Mic" every Thursday at 8 p.m. starting April 6, 2006 inside the historic Bound Brook train station at The Rail Bar & Grill located at 350 E. Main St. Bound Brook, NJ.
Nasty Ned invites singers, songwriters and musicians everywhere, as well as music fans of all genres, to come and enjoy American Roots Open Mic and share in the celebration of American roots music of the 20th century.
Players and singers of all music styles are encouraged to participate in this effort to focus attention on American roots and help preserve our musical heritage.
“There’s finally a place for musicians and fans to come together to play or just listen and remember where it all came from,” says the blues man and open mic host.
From blues to jazz to be-bop and rock & roll – to rock, country, R&B, soul, bluegrass, folk and zydeco – all are the birthplace of today’s music, according to Nasty Ned.
“You can’t hear all of this music on the radio anymore,” says Ned. “But you can hear it if you come to The Rail in Bound Brook on Thursday nights. You can’t miss it.”
The “it” he refers to all happens inside the historic Bound Brook train station; a fitting venue for an American roots music event. The Bound Brook station is a turn-of-the-century-railroad-house where the trains on the old Central Jersey Line still rumble in today. But now, the big engines stop just ten feet from the American Roots Open Mic stage.

Bands interested in guest-hosting an open mic can email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be asked to bring your drums and amps, play the first set then turn it over to the other open mic participants. This is a great way to be heard at The Rail and possibly get your own gig, and a good way to get on a cable TV show, maybe…
