Pat Guadagno, a folky master of many musical styles, will play acoustic rock at the Dive Bar on Circuit Avenue, Friday and Saturday nights, June 8th and 9th.

For those brave souls who want to try their own hand at singing, The Wharf Restaurant and Pub in Edgartown offers Gong Karaoke with Adam Natusch of the Boogies on Sunday nights. Adam portrays a sort of Island version of Simon Cowell and lets karaoke performers know frankly what he thinks about their music.
