Open Mics in Amherst, MA

signup sheet goes out on the bar at 6:30 sharp… 15 Slots - tight 2 song/12 min sets (but it depends on how many people signup… sometimes we can extend sets to 3 or 4 songs… so be prepared!)

we are creating an intimate listening room for our dinner crowd… by providing great food… drink… lighting… and sound… along with finely honed interpretations and performances of song… original and stellar covers are encouraged… we are seeking performing songwriters and interpreters of song who understand this isn't just about you… it's about the magic of songs intimately shared by performers with an audience… not the place to bring your cheat sheets… we provide the room… you provide the tunes… and when we get it right mystery brings the magic… we keep it simple… sm58 for vocal… sm57 and 1/4 line in and in-line tuner for your instrument… we are creating space for finely honed solo performances… but we are open to accommodate duos or any configuration that enhances the intimate shared experience vibe we are creating… bring your A game… check your ego at the door… and come hang with folks serious about community, food and the art, interpretation and performance of song… beginning in jan 2018 we will begin a monthly open mike invitational… where folks from our weekly open mike will be invited to perform full 30-45 min sets for our dinner crowd… and we will feed you!!!
