My only experience had been with doing karaoke, which I've come to really enjoy in one year's time. Wanted to try open mic, but was a little concerned when I found out I would have to sing acapella, which I had never done. I think I have found the perfect place to get started with open mics, because the crowd is warm and encouraging. I even got to sing with an awesome guitarist for the very first time last night. The regulars are very talented and inviting to newbies like me!

Great place to get started with open mikes: really receptive and encouraging crowd and a heck of a lot of talent and experience in the room.

just to let you know, Rider's is still going strong. Sign up is at 7:30pm with 15 minute sets starting at 8:00pm thru 10:15pm.

It fills up fast . . .

I had the good fortune to attend the open mic last August. We went for my birthday and it was a great surprise. I was familiar with some of the entertainment, but it was my first time at Rider's Inn. Great food, great music, and a great evening overall. I hope it continues for a long time. Anyone who gets a chance should go. Its an evening well worth the drive.
