\ RICHMOND HILL \
For some time now Steffi Postol Goodfield and Matt Groopie have been, in addition to booking shows at various venues in the Richmond Hill area, running a couple of weeknight open stages there.
That continues, but starting tonight one of them, which was running Thursdays, switches to Wednesday nights instead.
The Ward 5 Acoustic jam with Steffi G and Matt Groopie kicks off its new time slot in the same place tonight from 8-12 p.m. at London Pub, 9724 Yonge St., Richmond Hill. Everything is the same as it was every Thursday except now it happens on Wednesdays.
In addition to providing the stage the hosts also have an acoustic guitar, keyboard and bass for guests to use and the capability for artists with backing tracks to plug those into the PA. All styles and talent levels are welcome.
