PLEASE READ THE RULES CARFEULLY BEFORE SIGNING UP. INITIAL, NON-REFUNDABLE PAYMENT IS REQUIRED TO SIGN UP.
Songwriter’s Open Mic night continues to grow in popularity and draws a large and diverse crowd of listeners. Players may only be signed up for one future Monday time slot at a time, but you are welcome to sign up on a standby list for several other dates. To get on the standyby list, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office between 12pm and 6pm during the week. After you have performed your scheduled Open Mic time, you may sign up for another. So, keep in mind that many Open Mic players book their next Open Mic gig when they come in for their performance, so slots fill up quickly. After signing up, make sure you let all of your friends, family & fans know you will be performing so they can come on out and show their support!
