Open Mics in Schenectady, NY
Apostrophe Cafe, PROCTORS, Schenectady
Join us every Sunday for a variety show from Schenectady's top talent. We begin with an open improv style jam at 3pm. The open mic starts at 4. We offer 10 minute time slots and welcome you to invite any of the other musicians to perform with you.
Sign up is a little before 7pm. We do short (usually 6-10 minute) sets onstage using the mics & PA system. Then we circle the seats and spend the last 30-60 minutes in a song-swap format, backing each other up, singing & playing along with each person's song selection. Instrumentalists and singers welcome, even if you aren't interested in being part of the on-stage sets. There is no charge. The Step donates concert tickets for a drawing among everyone who plays a set on stage. Sandwiches, desserts, coffee, tea, and wine are generally available from the Apostrophe Café in Proctor's Arcade.
