“ I guess I missed this page previously. I started going to open-mics weekly at Cafe Kili sometime in 2009 or early 2010. After giving up guitar for over 12 years, this was/is a great place to perform live again. Great for Beginners to Pros of all ages. I have been involved with various cover and original bands, since 2010, otherwise I would attend every week. Cafe Kili is comfortable and it is a good room to perform in with usually a full-house. Also, I highly recommend the monthly 'Last Wednesday' of the month open-mic at 'Felicitous Coffee & Tea House'. An outdoor open-mic 'under the stars'. Mostly a 'college crowd', but all ages welcome. There are other open-mics that are great that I have not mentioned. Just too many to mention. I have met so many talented musicians, artists, writers and genuinely good people at these events. over the last few years. It has helped me develop as an artist and as a person. Thank you Lori for setting up this group. It is of great value. ”
— John M. L. on Apr 3, 2013.
“ Well, first of all, I was awed by the crowd and the type of people in there who were very conservative, laid back and every bit my age and didn't feel intimidated by the type of music I performed for them! They were all, and I mean all, very friendly and receiving, not to mention polite to me. Yes, I was nervous and knew I could do a lot better, however, I had no idea what I was going to perform and they were very polite as I stumbled through all the songs I knew and did my best on and polite enough to "suffer" through the type of music I did without being to impatient, especially when I'm sure some of the music I did they never heard of or could relate! I preferred the "Motown" type music and did my darnest to sing exactly like all the black ladies in those days. After all, look at Teena Marie, she was white and made it into the black R&B and Pop fields and thought nothing of it! ”
— Emily M. on Mar 22, 2013.

“ I attended open mic at Witch's Brew on the 8th of April. A small but supportive crowd. I had to drink 4 beers to calm my nerves-- not much help though-- it was my first time performing anything live in front of strangers. I got some useable feedback and I am grateful for their patience. ”
