Open Mic at the Icehouse in Summerville

Here is a mashup played at the Icehouse in Summerville during their open mic night, which is held every Sunday night from 9pm until last call!

The Icehouse's open mic was the first place Brandon performed solo in front of an audience!  Prior to that night, he played the trumpet in his school's band, as well as playing drums for church services and in a cover band.  His guitar teacher and current bandmate, David Collins, brought him out to the Icehouse that first time, and he has frequented the bar's open mic nights whenever possible since!
