TO AZ OPEN MIC!
you are wondering about the open mic scene in the metro Phoenix area
we've got tons of information just for you. If you're here for the
first time, click on the FIRST TIME HERE link under the logo.
If you have never been to an open mic night they all run similarly and
are not hard to figure out. You show up at the venue, look around for
a person who looks like they might be the host and typically there is
a numbered list on which you sign your name. When it is your
turn the host hooks up you up to the sound system and introduces you.
Typically you get 2-3 songs or 15 minutes depending on the venue. Go
to an open mic a couple times and you will quickly be seen as a
regular. It's a great way to improve your comfort level in front of an
audience, test your original material, network with other musicians
and find out about local music events.
Chava Cannon, local
singer/songwriter, helps me run this site and much of the look of the
site including the logo and artwork is her work.

SONGWRITERS FOR A
group of songwriters who got together to write songs for a
worthy cause. Also stay tuned for opportunities on how you too can be part
of Songwriters For A Cause and future projects!
cool things about being in the Arizona Songwriters Association
is that you get to know about cool events such as the Annual
Songwriters Gathering. For a short video that gives you an idea
of what that is like
SER is a really nice practice studio. If you have a need to practice they
are the people to use. They have rooms set up with drum sets,
PA/mics, great amps (Ampeg, Krank, Mesa Boogie e.g.) It’s like
$30 an hour and saves the hassle of hauling equipment to
rehearsals—plus the equipment is better than a lot of us have.
