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.
In April, the feature performer at the Meeting House Stage will be the duo Cooper and Kenneally!
Doors open at 6:30 pm and music begins at 7:00 pm. Performers are encouraged to sign up for an open mike slot. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Each slot consists of 2 songs or 10 minutes, whichever comes first. Performers can reserve a slot up to a week ahead (no earlier) by emailing email@example.com.
Each month we will have a feature performer who will get a longer, 30-minute slot. Check out our Calendar (http://meetinghousestage.com/schedule) to see who will be featured at our coffeehouse in the coming months.
Equipment: We have a small PA, five microphones, and two direct inputs for instruments that provide sound reinforcement. A nice old upright piano is available for use as well.
Dates: Usually held on the second Friday of each month. Consult the Calendar page (http://meetinghousestage.com/schedule) to make sure that the open mike is being held during any particular month. Occasionally we may need to move the date for a given month, depending on availability of the venue. For example, in October we will always be on the third Friday, and in July we are typically outdoors at the Rindge Historical Society on the first or second Saturday. There is no open mike held in December.
