Open Mic

  • From 8:30 to 9:30 pm, the stage format is “Open Mic”, on a first signed-up, first on-stage basis!!!  This gives you an opportunity to sing two original songs.

FAQ’s

  • When you perform, feel free to bring an accompanist or backing tracks. (If you have a CD, please talk to the Sound Man, prior to the Showcase beginning)
  • Please remember that ALL performances must be original songs only.
  • We have a “house” guitar, which is normally available to use.  If you play a different (portable) instrument, feel free to bring it with you!  (But remember that a long “set-up” time, takes time away from other performers.  So, please tune-up, and be ready to go, when it is your turn.)
  • In order to be considered for a Songwriter Showcase, you must talk to our President & Talent Coordinator, LaRaine at the Open Mic.
  • All styles of music are welcome, although we would remind performers that as we hold our events in a family-friendly venue, we would ask that you watch your language… and your lyrics !!!

 

Hope to see you soon !!!
