Open Mic Guidelines
This is an acoustic Open Mic for musicians only. We do not feature poetry, comedy or karaoke. We discourage the use of pre-recorded backing tracks of any sort. Our audience wants to hear live music only.
We provide microphones and direct inputs for acoustic instruments. If you would like to use electric guitar, bass or keyboards please bring a small amplifier. Due to volume limitations we cannot have drum sets. Hand percussion is OK.
You may sign up for one 10 minute slot per week (times are approximate). Please sign up for the current week only. All others will automatically be deleted. Your time includes set-up time, so we encourage you to tune your instrument before you take the stage. If you have electronic gear please have it set up ahead of time. You should have enough time to play two full songs with a little banter in between. Depending on how many people show up you may get extra time. If all the slots are taken you may still be able to play if someone doesn’t show up or has to cancel at the last minute.
