Open Mic Night:
It’s a New Year, so let’s start off a new Open Mic Night in the Mississauga/Brampton area !
Beginning Thursday January 10th: I will be hosting a Weekly Open Mic Night at The Crown and Lion, located at 7985 Financial Drive, Brampton, Ontario (905) 453-1000. The Crown and Lion is located one block east of Steeles and Mississauga Rd.
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, Brampton and the surrounding area.
Open Mic Thursdays will run from 8pm to midnight each Thursday evening starting January 10th, 2013. 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 Crown and Lion is a great place, the food & drink is very good and reasonably-priced and the staff are wonderful. I’m really looking forward to hosting these nights and making it “the place to be” on Thursday evenings. Tell your friends, bring them out and let’s have a great time!
