You may be wondering what is new at the Georgetown Open Mic with Tim Melanson.

Well... The students are back and the musicians keep coming. We have so many new people coming out every week and it doesn't seem like it will slow down.

Here's a little view from the stage while regulars Jessika and Gary rock the crowd with some Bon Jovi.

The other new development is DRUMS!

Georgetown's very own, Silas, has decided to bring his kit whenever he can. This is so exciting! We have so many incredible musicians every week and since I've always got at least a Djembe with me, this will just take it to a new level.

Come on out and show your stuff!

Summer Fun

I haven't posted in a little while, and I thought it was about time. At the start of the summer I had foolishly considered suspending the open mic... I'm so glad that I decided to keep it going. It has been going quite well through the summer and every few weeks, we get a huge crowd.

It's funny how time flies, I've been hosting this open mic for close to 9 months now, and I'm still amazed at the new and regular performers that are walking through the door. One that I'd like to bring up is a sitar player that came out a couple weeks ago.

Imagine my surprise when this guy lays out his blanket and starts playing beatles songs on his sitar! It was awesome.

At Open Mic with Tim Melanson, everyone is welcome and encouraged to take their 15 minutes of fame!

Let the Good Times Roll

It's been a while since I've posted another note on here, so I thought I'd add a quick update.

Open Mic at the Georgetown is still going strong! We are attracting so many awesome musicians and every week we get to hear from a new singer or two. I'm so excited that everyone is reacting so well to the Open Mic Karaoke concept.

Here we have one of the regulars, Zoe rocking out with me to LaBamba! Too much fun.

If you are looking to get your rock star experience but you don't know a guitarist to come out to an open stage with, just come on out! I have a book full of songs for you to choose from. Also, chances are, if you print out the guitar chords and bring them with you, I will probably be able to play it for you.

See you at the Georgetown Pub! Every Wednesday Night!
