Khyber Pass Pub reemerging as a music hot spot
Music has returned to the Khyber Pass Pub, 56 S. 2nd St, another Philadelphia venue with a rich history. The tradition of bringing together talent from all over the city’s vast and eclectic music community now continues with John Faye hosting Open Mic Tuesdays, Upstairs at The Khyber Pass Pub, presented by DVT Entertainment and sponsored by Workhorse Brewing Company.
Host: John Faye
Putting aside his over three decades in the music business as the voice of the Caulfields, IKE, John & Brittany, and John Faye & Those Meddling Kids, (as well as his work as a producer, rock school band instructor, songwriting professor at Drexel University, and soon-to-be author), many Philadelphia-area musicians got to know John Faye during his tenure as the open mic host at The Legendary Dobbs on South Street from 2011-2015.
Now in late 2019, John has once again teamed up with DVT Entertainment, the booking agents who originally brought him on to host at Dobbs and later at the Grape Room for the songwriter series “Got Songs.”
Each week we invite artists and music fans alike to this free 21+ event to hang out, eat, drink and experience a new generation of live music and art as one of Philadelphia's most notable venues once again will be filled with the sounds of voices and guitars and walls that are adorned with local artists.
Open Mic Night will start with sign ups at 8pm and music beginning promptly at 830pm. Full PA provided, please bring your instruments. Artists please note, this will be an acoustic/stripped down performance with the exception of some occasional Featured Acts. That means bring your acoustic guitars, keyboard, small electric guitar amps, auxiliary percussion such as Cajon. Djembe, congas etc. No Drums please. You may use our house Bass Cabinet & Head.
