Open Mics

An open mic provides an opportunity for newcomers to be heard, for seasoned musicians to try out new material, and for anyone with an act to connect with an audience. Performers and audience members tend to be very supportive. Open mics are a great way to meet other songwriters and musicians and to improve your performance skills. The most important thing is to have a good time!
