Open Mic hosted by Carolyn Messina
Attention musicians, singers, poets and storytellers:
Please join us for Life Center Stage’s monthly Open Mic at Rest Stop Rejuvenate held on th 3rd Saturday of each month.
We offer a supportive living room environment, giving this Open Mic a home concert feel.
Don’t miss this opportunity to explore and expand your talents.
Enjoy the freedom to express yourself while having LOTS OF FUN!
If you sing, but don’t play an instrument, we have songbooks (or you may bring a few copies of sheet music or lyric/chord sheets) and our house musicians or regular open mic performers are available to accompany you.
Not a performer? Please come and listen. All are welcome to attend.
Format: Depending on the crowd,each performer on the sign-up sheet gets 3 songs/poems – no more than 12 minutes. If there are more than 15 performers signed up, then there may be a limit of only 2 songs (8 minutes) to ensure everyone who wishes to perform has the chance to do so…even if we run late.
* You must sign up in person. Please do not sign up other performers on their behalf if they have not arrived yet. *
** Please be ready when it is your turn to perform. Be sure your guitar is tuned prior to stepping on the stage. This will speed up the transition between performers. **
*** Please be courteous and supportive of all the performers. This is a “listening room.” Therefore, please refrain from talking during performances. ***
WHAT WE PROVIDE:
We provide a Professional Quality PA System & Mixing Board, 2 microphones & mic stands, 3 guitar cables, and an Electric Piano as well as a music stand to hold lyrics or poems.
While we understand performers often prefer to use their own equipment, we respectfully request that you make use of our gear and not bring any of the following: drum kits, keyboards or amplifiers. This kind of equipment usually requires time-consuming setups and break-downs, and we would prefer to spend the time on performances so as to give everyone a chance within a reasonable time frame.
Drummers are welcome to bring hand percussion instruments, djembes or cajons.
Any guitar player that uses a special effects pedal, please have all your cables & pedals hooked up with your own cables so all we have to do is plug your end cable (1/4” or XLR) into the soundboard.
PLEASE CALL AHEAD with any specific questions about this policy or if you have any special equipment needs with which we can assist.
