This Wednesday is the first Guitar Shed Open Mic at The Pullman in downtown Kirkwood! What exactly does that mean? Well, this is the first one so it will be a learning process for everyone. But here are some guidelines….
This is a songwriter open mic, so the performance of your own material is encouraged but not required. Before I began writing my own songs, I learned a great deal from performing covers. Sorry, no spoken word or comedy is allowed. While it is important to practice your instrument on your own, I am a firm believer that the real learning takes place in front of an audience. This is a great low pressure way to hone your chops at a neighborhood watering hole. Did I mention they have great food?!
Sign up begins at 8:30 pm but you can sign up at any point throughout the night. Performance slots will be a maximum of 15 minutes starting at 9:00 pm and ending at 11:00 pm. This is a public open mic, so you don’t have to be a student at Guitar Shed to perform or attend. However, I encourage my students to do both! We will have a small PA system with a couple of mics and instrument cables. So just bring your axe, some friends and some songs!
