    At Mason’s Pizza in Bella Vista, you can find live music dang near every Thursday. On the first and third Thursdays of the month, open mics take place. On the remaining Thursdays, Harmonica Steve hosts his “Thursday Live Music” events, which are about half Steve doing his tasty blend of covers and originals, and half invitation jam.

    At Steve’s last event, Alissa Johnson and Al Briones closed out the evening with their improvisational music.
