There’s something for everyone at Higher Grounds
Higher Grounds, located at 119 Water St. in Hallowell, is a place for everybody to check out. It’s all about art, music and the folks who appreciate it.
The venue is open from 7 p.m. to close on Tuesday and Wednesday and from 5 p.m. to close on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The week kicks off with open mic every Tuesday from 8 to 11 p.m., with musicians Derek Gannet and John Hasnip alternating on leading the evening jams. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Open-Mic-at-Higher-Grounds/392179644161369
Every first Wednesday of the month from 8 to 11 p.m., Higher Grounds hosts an event called Experiment in Art and Music. Tables are set up around the bar and folks are encouraged to create their own piece of work while listening to the Transistors, a band that plays experimental music as members feed off one another’s performance.
Some of the standard performances at Higher Grounds every month include the School Street Band (which has proven to bring in a big crowd) the first Friday of every month, and the Christine Poulson Band (who likes to rock the house and get the crowd dancing) the first Saturday of every month.
Every Thursday, Higher Grounds hosts Ladies Night as DJ Reid spins tunes. Ladies are welcome to stop by and enjoy some drink specials and gather around to chat and dance.
Higher Grounds is also offering a Music Trivia Night with local musician Sam Shain the third Wednesday of every month. Stop on down and show Sam how much you know about the music we have been blessed with throughout the years.
The Grounds also holds a Tip Jar Session during happy hour from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, in which musicians stop by to perform in the early hours of the evening simply because they love to.
As always, Higher Grounds will bring in a number of other bands and musicians, some whom have been around for quite some time and some up and coming new talent.
Most importantly, though, you’ll always get service with a smile. So, stop on by some evening and say hello to Jess and the girls. Phone: (207) 621-4114.
