  1. Kenny Davis is a huge asset to The Open Mic Studio Sessions @ The Med, we are lucky to have him. I just hope that everyone "Gets Local" with this and keep our local music scene alive! After all, Mississippi is the music mecca of the world. To all the people who disagree and say Mississippi has no culture and we don't offer anything to the rest of the America's music? Here are a few Mississippi Legends who have contributed to music history and a few new Mississippi musicians I think the world has heard about quite a few times....
