I'm a professional live and studio guitarist who lives in Traverse City. Have hosted other open mics in the past, and as of summer '13 have been hosting open mic at Union Street Station, right in down town Traverse City. There is a full stage and system, so just bring whatever equipment/back line that you want/need and I'll take care of the rest. I don't have house gear, ie. drumset, bass amp, or guitar amp, so bring what you can of your own stuff.
