Great music

Enjoyed the free outdoor concert. It was our first time here but, hopefully, won't be our last. This is a real draw in Rock Hall.

My wife and I have attended numerous Mainstay concerts. The experience is always unique, intimate and memorable. As residents of Rock Hall, we consider the Mainstay to be one of our great community treasures. Referencing the "Not Open" review below, I have to ask... Is it fair to give a "terrible" review to an establishment that a person did not... More

A great night out; the talent, the atmosphere, --oh my gosh...this far exceeded our expectations. This is run by local individuals who love music and know how to spot and bring in quality talent. We saw Daryl Davis who was an extraordinary entertainer, musician, humble guy who makes who escape in his talent and stories and gives you his heart... More

very sad to share, this place was not open during the weekday when we visited for our anniversary weekend. It would have been great if it was open to hear some live local music during the week.

We have been to several concerts here over the years and it is a treat to see the enormous amount of talent that's out there. This time we sat outside, listened to a fantastic class guitarist. It was hot so after we put our chairs up we walked across the street to Durdings and got snowballs. Great evening.

Call to book your ticket on the honor system. Sit right in front of the performers. Get a glass of wine at intermission. What not to like?!

After a great dinner at Osprey Point Restaurant, we enjoyed a very pleasant evening at the Mainstay. Washington, DC vocalist Lena Seikaly and her band performed a tribute to the music of Billie Holiday during two 45 minutes sets. Every seat in the venue was taken and the evening outstanding.

Great music all day at the oyster festival. Very lay back and entertaining. Wish my friends could have been there.

Vocalist with pianist playing a mix of folk and show tunes. Vocalist was weaker than pianist, but hey it was free.

Fun to sit in mismatched chairs and enjoy a movie and concert -- the Mainstay is a great venue, small with good sound and a very close stage!
