every Saturday 3-5pm
JGG is now hosting an Acoustic Open Mic for singer songwriters and bands. Our new venue is set up with everything you need to perform. Bring your instrument and strut your stuff in our brand new performance center. Musicians will perform two or three songs depending on the amount of sign-ups on a given night.
All performances will be recorded and will be available for purchase.
How it works:
An open mic is a live show at a coffeehouse, nightclub, comedy club, at which audience members who are amateur & professional are given the opportunity to perform onstage in front of a live audience. Our performers will get on the new stage use our new sound system, digital piano, microphones, amps and our cajon drum set to perform.
Performers will signup at the performance center when they arrive. At the 2:50 p.m. cut-off time, all names will be placed in a hat, then drawn to determine the order of performers. If performers are late for the sign up they will be added to the end of the list in the order they arrive.
Our open mic is a listening experience. We ask that patrons refrain from talking during performances. Our open-mic is primarily for Acoustic performances. We do allow full bands to perform but they will be required to use acoustic guitars with an electric bass or one electric guitar. We will have a cajon available to use if drummers would like to come and perform with a group. This will ensure our audience is not overwhelmed by the sound and can get the full coffeehouse experience.
What to bring:
Performers should bring their instrument.What we provide: We provide a digital piano, a cajon setup for a drummer/percussionist. We have amps, microphones and a full sound system that will be used by performers. If you need something special please contact us in advance and we may be able to provide some assistance.
