On October 17 (third Friday in October), Ken and Dan Durand will be our Feature Performer at the Meeting House Stage!
In October, the brother duo of Ken and Dan Durand will be our feature performers. Regulars at the Meeting House Stage, the Durand’s tight harmonies and eclectic mix of originals and cover tunes are always a popular highlight of our open mike. We’re looking forward to having them perform a longer set.
During their many yeas of playing together, they have played such varied venues as coffee houses, taverns, schools, weddings, fundraisers, and other special events. They favor using strong harmonies in the songs that they choose. It has often been noted how well their voices flow together. Whether this is nature (being brothers) or nurture (of the sound they aim to create) remains to be seen – or in this case, heard.
Coffee, tea, and an ever-changing variety of wonderful home-made food is available.
How it works: Doors open at 6:30 pm and music begins at 7:00 pm. Performers are encouraged to sign up for one of the 15-minute slots. Sign-up is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Thinking about performing? Everybody is welcomed and encouraged to share their talents, but like all things in life, there are Rules. Most months we will schedule a feature performer for a longer, 40-minute slot. Check out our Calendar to see who will be featured at our coffeehouse in the coming months.
Equipment: We have a small PA, four microphones, and two direct inputs for instruments that provide sound reinforcement. A nice old upright piano is available for use as well.
Dates: Usually held on the second Friday of each month. Consult the Calendar page to make sure that the open mike is being held during any particular month. Occasionally we may need to move the date for a given month, depending on availability of the venue.
