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.
Bring your instrument if you want to play or bring a dish if you want eat. All music styles welcome. Every other Saturday we get together for pot luck dinner and entertainment. Lots of guitarists, some banjo\mandolin pickets, couple a bass players, the occasional drummer and\or fiddle player! Chris plays delightfully on the keys when she sows and even some pretty mean harmonica players show up. Most everyone sings. Audience style seating for around 50 people and a large kitchen area for food. There are 4 vocal plus 4 instrument mikes, 2 extra instrument mikes, a few amps, input for keyboard and electric guitar; all connected to a 24 channel mixer feeding a PA and monitors.
Just show up an Howard will introduce himself and get you seated or set up to play. Music is their most common, poetry is occasional and comedy is preferred.
If you're not coming for the fun, you may want to come for the variety of music.
