Presumed Suspended Due To Covid-19 Closures
April 9, 2020
We're assuming that most, if not all, of the non-virtual Open Mikes listed on this site are on hold for now. Rather than encourage anyone to go out for no good reason, we're marking all Open Mikes on-hold until we hear otherwise from the listing owners.
Signups start at 6 and fill up quickly. Must be on site to sign up. Music acts only. Always a friendly supportive crowd.
What this venue provides:
A STAGE - Well, not exactly a stage, but a mic (or 3 or 4) and the opportunity to be heard! Bring your new material, get your feet wet, bask in the applause!
SOUND SYSTEM - Consisting of a Mackie 808S 8 channel mixer; (2) Beringer B1220 Pro Mains, (2) Peavey PR10 monitors, 3 wired mic's, Mic stands, Music stand, Stools, DI box for direct input of instruments, 2-3 open channels available. XLR or 1/4". Backline: VOX AD30VT Amp, Fender Rumble60 Bass Amp.
MISC INSTRUMENTS - I usually have 1 or more acoustic guitars available if you show up without one and decide you want to play. There's a minimal Drum Kit as well as a number of small hand percussion instruments; tambourine, shaker eggs, Bongos, etc.
CASUAL, NEIGHBORHOOD RESTAURANT/BAR ATMOSPHERE - Acts must adhere to our guidelines. (Sorry, but no Profanity, Rap, Hip-Hop, or Heavy Metal)
PHYSICAL SPACE - The actual space for performers is nice (can reasonably accommodate 3-4 people with instruments). I now have a drum kit (minimalist) set up as well.
