TO AZ OPEN MIC!
open mic scene in the metro Phoenix area is making a comeback.
This site may come back to life. I'd recommend not using the list
at the moment until I can get things straightened out on here. If
you go to facebook, the AZ open mic is very active and you can
find some very current information there. Ask to be added.
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.
