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.
