Rules? Yeah, we got ’em … 


    • Ask the host.


    • Five vocal mikes and two instrument cables are provided. The PA system is adequate for as many as four performers. If you are considering performing with more than four people, ask the host.
    • While this is an acoustic open mike, electric bass, keyboards, and guitars can be utilized. Very loud volume, heavy guitar distortion, etc., is not encouraged. If you have any questions, ask the host.
    • If you wish to play the house piano, it will need to be moved into position prior to the start of the show. Ask the host.
    • If you are bringing your own keyboards, please arrive by 6:30 pm for setup. We need to keep set-up/tear-down time to a minimum.
    • No pre-recorded tracks, electronic accompanment, or drum machines are allowed. If you have any questions, ask the host.
    • Percussion is allowed and encouraged, but no full drum kits. Only scaled down, or hand-held percussion. Any questions? Ask the host.
    • All music must be played live. CD Accompaniment Tracks are not allowed. Open Mike does not mean Karaoke.
    • And finally, when in doubt … ask the host.
