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.
The Back Yard Dock Bar and Grill
Life Realized will be hosting an Open Mic Night at The Blue Pineapple Bistro (470 W. Dearborn St, Englewood).
We’ll be bringing in the amazingly talented local-area musicians; The Blue Pineapple will be providing a relaxing atmosphere on the deck under the big ol’ tree and their great appetizers, wings & baskets, subs & sandwiches, burgers, chicken, “and beyond.”
The music will run from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.
(PLEASE NOTE THE 11/23 DATE HAS BEEN CANCELLED.)
Musicians: Sign-ups start at 4:30pm. There are 17 slots, first-come-first-served. Covers, originals, acoustic, acoustic/electric, any genre. Full electric with stomp boxes direct into the PA only; NO AMPS (we control the volume to a comfortable livingroom level.) Everything is provided, including guitar cords. Just bring your instruments, plug in, and sing/play! Any “gig-related” questions, or for vocalists to arrange piano or guitar accompaniment, please call Bill Lundgren at 941-500-3443.
Hope to see you for a rockin’ good time!
