A Co-Sponsored Event by Life Realized and Mango Bistro


Sign ups are at 5:30pm.

Have four songs prepped.

The number of players determines the number of songs or time allotted.

There is NO backup band. You get up and sing/play, then the next on the roster does the same, 'til we run out of players or time. If you are a solo player or vocalist and need backup, make arrangements for accompaniment - bring your own or contact Bill Lundgren (941-500-3443) to arrange for piano or guitar backup (which may mean you have to wait a week to get on the roster- my musical resources and I only have so much time to learn your music.)

This is NOT karaoke, and backing tracks are discouraged.

While we encourage all genres of music, most of the players and audience are into pop and classic rock styles. We welcome acoustic, acoustic-electric, and electric. Stomp boxes are welcome if you have/need one; please, DO NOT bring an amp. You will be patched directly into the PA system. We don't have the space for amps on the "stage" area nor the distance to the audience.


Host: John Munn
