We welcome Colin Black and Micah Nerone to the Guild!

Colin Black live at Skyline on the beachOur weekly open mic evenings in Café Sappho are paying off. Dubbed the Tuesday Night Music Club (TNMC in short), the ASG offers an opportunity for singer-songwriters to play their songs in a laidback and intimate setting. As the name suggests, it's on every Tuesday night starting from 10 PM. It's a good way to test your songs, and above all to connect to interesting songwriters from all over the world! Because we started out a short while ago, the TNMC is not so crowded. But that didn't prevent Colin and Micah from playing!

Colin Black playing on the beach for ASGThe last two weeks we got in touch with two amazing songwriters from the States, just because they showed up at Sappho. Two weeks ago brought us Colin Black, who lives and works in The Hague. We were so impressed by his americana songs, that we asked him to play on our ASG Beach Club in Skyline at the end of May!

Micah NeroneLast Tuesday we had Micah Nerone from Cleveland, Ohio. We jammed all night with him. With his songs, he took us to an imaginary place where Belle & Sebastian, The Palace Brothers and The Microphones are household names... Micah was here on vacation, but he agreed to play the Skyline on the Zandvoort (A)Live festival last Sunday. I'm sure he never thought a thing like that would happen on his holiday!

This Tuesday we'll have another issue of the Tuesday Night Music Club, of course. Everybody is welcome to play!
