River City Revival House is proud to announce our first Open Stage, Wednesday, May 23rd with guest host Jay Gilday.

Open Stages have always been a favourite of mine.  No matter the city I'm in, if I catch wind of an open stage night, I WILL be there, sipping the local craft brew and listening to the local musicians and artists perform.  I feel an open stage is one of the greatest ways to support the culture and community within a city, especially my own city: Edmonton!   

When Tyson and I owned the Tavern on Whyte, we were overwhelmed with the support from the community for our open stage nights!  There were so many amazing, talented musicians who honoured us by playing! We had so many patrons, transitioned from acquaintances to dear friends over a pint or two during these nights!  It was an incredible experience for us, and one that we couldn't resist creating again!

River City Revival House is proud to announce our first Open Stage, Wednesday, May 23rd!!! Each week our Open Stage will be hosted by a different musician, with the first musician being the incredibly talented Jay Gilday! And I am tickled pink!  Way back when, O'Byrnes Irish pub had the late, great Joe Bird host their open stage, that's where I first heard Jay play. I guarantee you will fall in love with Jay's powerfully soulful voice and his seemingly endless ability to strum his heart out on his guitar. Whether you are a long time fan of Jay, open stage nights (or if this is your first night for both) I guarantee you, this will be a one of a kind evening, with plenty of local musicians to check out and support!

In 2017 Jay won Indigenous Artist of the Year from the Western Canadian Music Awards, Singer/Songwriter of the Year, and Artist to Watch from the Edmonton Music Awards. For more information on Jay, or if you want to check out his tunes go to:
