This is so much fun!
I am in my second month running the open stage at the Georgetown Pub on Wednesday nights and I am having a blast. The last month has been incredible. The bar is busy every week and the list is full. There are plenty of artists showing off original songs as well as their favorite covers. Here is a little taste of last week's Open Mic. People are always welcome to come up and sing along with me, and here are a few regulars showing their stuff to Aretha Franklin's RESPECT!
If you are new to the open mic world I'll give you a few tips.
1. Prepare at least 1 cover song. You can be creative and make it your own, but it is much easier to win an audience if you catch their attention with something they know.
2. Bring your own guitar. I have my guitar there, but I will be watching you like a hawk and if you hurt it, I will not be happy.
3. If you make a mistake, ignore it! Chances are no one noticed!
I hope to see you out on Wednesday!
