And as serious as that sounds, rest assured, there's more than a little bit of fun going on around here... ; ) And the stars - they align more than we know.

A talented and
supportive Open Mic Host... : )
Nelson Sobral, pictured above, is an enormously talented, and versatile, songwriter and musician. He's a very bright light - a powerhouse really - and his warm, affable energy and musical empathy are infectious and immensely heartening. And all of this, is only exceeded by his humility. Amazing...
Nelson tirelessly champions other artists, is a staunch supporter of the Toronto music scene, and is a consummate Professional Musician. You gotta hear this cat play... You can check him out every Monday.
All of us here at The Painted Lady are honoured to have Nelson, and the awesome crew that comprise 'The Monday Night Magik Band', host our Open Mic Mondays.
Thank you's to Troy Larabie, Selcuk Suna, Marcus Walker, and of course Nelson... And to all others who join in every Monday!
And check out Nelson's band - you're in for a treat:
