Our mission is to invigorate the cultural experience of Eastern Shore life by presenting outstanding musical programming and to provide a setting for creativity, inquiry and conversation.
Our traditional Monday night master of ceremonies, Joe Holt returns to the Monday night LIVE series on Facebook. Like all great musicians, Joe is always looking to work on something new, but like all musicians who are in frequent demand, there is never enough time to get to it all. In light of this current forced “sabbatical”, Joe has finally had time to get to work on his own bucket list. Tune in to see what he’s been up to!
Even as The Mainstay stands dark, we are working to ensure a quick and easy restart of the Musical Magic when the all clear sounds. To help pick right back up where we left off, we ask those who are able, make a tax deductible donation to our organization.
A few weeks ago, our wonderful bartender Becky Byrd donated $1,500 to The Mainstay and issued a challenge that all who are in a position to donate to our organization, do so. As a result, we have received over $7,000 from you! Thank you so much for all the love.
What’s Next at The Mainstay!
Home of Musical Magic!
Located in a 100 year old building at 5753 N. Main Street, The Mainstay is a cultural and artistic center for Rock Hall, a historic “waterman’s” town on the Upper Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay. The town’s healthy mix of people with a deep heritage on the Eastern Shore and newcomers who have fallen in love with the area give it a vitality, a hometown feeling and a sense of community that is hard to beat.
