  • So what's actually involved, who is it open to, what time to the individual events start, how long to they last, what instruments can be used; in fact, any information at all would be useful!

  • Hi Valerie. All evenings are 8pm start unless otherwise stated above. The beauty of Open Mic nights is that anyone can turn up and have a slot, just bring along your instrument (whether that's guitar, keyboard, uke, accordion or anything else!). We will have microphones and a PA system, fully engineered by our expert hosts. If you have specific questions about what to expect on the evening, feel free to get in touch with Dave - [email protected]

    I hope this helps,
    Matt

  • Hi Judith,
    I presume that you are looking at the open mic night at the George in Chideock. This is on tonight (2nd August), as it is on the first Wednesday of the month. It all kicks off at 8pm tonight.
    All the best,
    Matt

  • What is the difference between Open Mic and Showcase please?

    Posted on September 25, 2017 at 6:20 pm

  • Thanks for the question. The open mic nights are open for anyone to turn up and play. Whereas the Showcase nights are pre-booked for performers that do well at the open mic nights. Hopefully this clears it up a bit.

    All the best,
    Matt
