Every Monday night from 8 – 10:30PM, is a free Open Mic.
All ages are welcome, so come on over at 7:00pm and sign up
for the 1 song lottery. At 7:30 the host will pull the names from
a basket one at a time. We often have about 35 – 50 artists signing up so please perform a song that is 4 minutes or less so that all the artists signing up have a chance to play that follow you.
For a $20 donation you can request an .mp4 download of your performance, captured by our multi-camera video studio.
A great house band of studio players is always available at no cost but you must bring music chord charts for the band and come early before the show to rehearse your song beginning at 6:30 PM. If you are not familiar with music chord charts it can get very complicated for both you and the band ending up with frustrating results. Reading music is easy for the band if properly written but there are also a number of other tricky variables that can come into play. If you are unsure, it might be best if you come one night to just observe and ask us questions.
Original songs are 95% of what artists do here. Try to keep an open mind, take direction, and be patient. The band is often learning songs from several different artists in a very short period of time and they can easily
become overwhelmed. You are also welcome to bring a CD with the music minus the lead vocal that we can play back on our sound system that you can sing to.
You are welcome to use our acoustic guitar, and baby grand piano (on loan by Bill Stettler, Thank you Bill). No amps or effects pedals/units please. We have all the audio gear, DI’s, and hook ups you’ll need.
