It’s Open Mic time again down at Duffy’s Bar. Come down and hear our fantastic feature act for the evening or even play us some tunes! Each act gets 15 minutes and we accept all styles of performance and all levels of experience.

This weeks feature act is our good friend Mike Riley:

Riley weaves anguished vocals across the muted, percussive telegraph wire of an old Takamine guitar, affording fleeting glimpses of the lives and loves that shuffle through the drenched, smokey city.

With a musical education honed across ten years playing in the bar bands of the late-night Leicester music scene, and a deep respect for classic songwriting, Riley’s rootsy, country-rock tinged stories are a love song to the dark and to the lost souls who call it home.

Riley can also be regularly found fronting the band Missing Mile alongside his fellow nocturnals, including moonlighting members of critically-acclaimed The Whiskey Rebellion.

The night kicks off at 8pm. Arrive earlier to guarantee a slot.
