The Lost Knight Weekly Musicians' Open Mic began in January 2016 by Brenda Carsey with the intentions of bringing community together, connecting people, creating a comfortable and creative environment for people to share in, and having a night of hanging and fun!
THE RUN DOWN:
SIGN UPS: sign ups BEGIN AT 7:30pm and END at 8:15pm sharp. Visit the main Tap Room bar, order a drink or food to support the venue, grab a ticket from the bartender, then come visit me near the sound booth, I'll snag your ticket from you, and we'll get you all signed up!
There will be a MAXIMUM of 20 people that will be able to sign up each week. Come early! Each person that signs up will get to play 2 songs/8 minutes (no epic 10 minute single song metal adventure ballads please!). Please know the length of your songs before arriving to be sure that your time on stage (including both songs, plugging in a packing up, and talking) stays at 9 minutes maximum. Thank you in advance!
OPEN MIC and FEATURED ARTIST: the open mic will then begin AT 8:30pm with a random, pull out of the jar process so that who is up next will be a surprise. So be prepared to play at any moment. And don't worry. I'll still be sure to share who is up next and who is on deck. The Open Mic will be split into two halves sandwiching the featured artist's yumminess in the middle.
sign ups: 7:30pm to 8:15pm
open mic FIRST HALF: 8:30pm to 10:00pm
FEATURED ARTIST: 10:00pm to 10:30pm

Please BRING YOUR OWN INSTRUMENTS/guitars/keyboards. We will provide: 2 D.I. boxes, two 1/4" cables, 3 mics with stands and cables. Please keep in mind this is an ACOUSTIC driven night. Hand percussion is totally cool, however, the back-lined instruments on stage WILL NOT be used during the open mic. No drum kit allowed. You may perform to a backing track if that is your thing so long as the song is saved to a device that has an 1/8" plug in. Thank you in advanced for understanding!
FEATURED ARTIST: Each week there will be one fea
