Open Mic Night:
Beginning Wednesday September 19th: I will be hosting a Weekly Open Mic Night at The Drake n Firkin, located at 6982 Financial Drive, Mississauga, Ontario (905) 567-9173. I’ve been at a number of local Open Mic Nights around the area this summer and believe me, there is a LOT of talent out there. It is my goal to provide a fun and entertaining environment for aspiring (and established) artists to come out and showcase their talents. If you sing or play an instrument, this is the place to be. You’ll get a chance to perform, meet other artists and get noticed. Even if you don’t play or sing, come out to listen to some of the amazing talent here in Mississauga and the surrounding area.
With A Little Help From My Friends Wednesdays will run from 8pm to midnight each Wednesday starting Sept 19th. To be fair to all the performers, slots will be 3 songs (or 15 minutes) and these slots will be allocated via a sign-up sheet. If time permits, you may be able to sign up for a second slot. I will start the evening off with a few songs, to get everyone “in the mood”, then the other artists will take to the stage.
PA system,an amplifier, a keyboard and a couple of microphones on stands will be provided, along with assorted percussion instruments (shakers, tambourine, etc.). Please bring your own instrument. This will be primarily an Open Mic Night (not an Open Jam), so please be prepared to accompany yourself or bring a friend to do so. That said, if the performer is cool with other people getting up to help them, that’s fine, too!
The Drake n Firkin is a great venue (2nd home of The Weathered Kings), the food & drink is very good and reasonably-priced and the staff are amazing. I’m really looking forward to hosting these nights and making it “the place to be” on Wednesday nights. Tell your friends, bring them out and let’s have a great time!
