     one of the few open mics that is truly "open".......it's not a "who you know open mic"; which is obviously not open at all.

     If you like to play guitar and sing, this is a terrific way to have fun and stretch your musical abilities. You won't find a more supportive, appreciative and encouraging group anywhere.

     This was our first time and we enjoyed it. Most everyone was very friendly and enthusiastic. Sometimes there were too many different songs being played at the same time.

     I was a bit off guard when people asked me for a song or a chord progression; I didn't come prepared with either one, but I hope to change that when I visit on 9/1. I only stayed for two hours because I couldn't get comfortable sitting on the ground, but I'll be better prepared in that respect next time too.

  • NYC Guitar Group

     A successful open mic becomes a mini music scene. There is a dynamic to how it is run that creates a lot of the vibe. "The List" and the way it is administered is a big part of it and everyone seemed to feel comfortable with the way it was handled. Another important aspect of an open mic is the PA and there's an adequate one at the Ella Lounge with real monitors ,decent speakers and most importantly, someone to operate it which removes one tech aspect of getting up to perform.I found the crowd especially well mannered and welcoming and the diversity in terms of styles ,experience, level of talent, ethnicities represented are what you'd expect from a City like this one. I have attended open mics here for years and recommend this as of the best.They even sent a bartender down to the basement which says a lot about the venue and how they view musicians.

     PERFECT GROUP EVER!!! 

    Sungok L. on Aug 19, 2012.

  • NYC Guitar Group

     The overall vibe was welcoming, and very supportive of all the participants. There was no competition or show offs, and the players had a wide range of skills from beginners to advanced. It’s definitely a good crowd with an established sense of community, but open to new comers. The main organizer, Emily, is a very talented young woman with a beautiful voice and a big heart. The crowd seems to be mostly middle age, although there were also younger people. The music was mostly songwriter oriented and lacked some diversity: no jazz, blues, classical, finger picking, R&B, bosa nova, or experimental, not even rock and roll. But what the group lacks in diversity, it makes up in being supportive of all. Keep in mind that it was my first time, and I was there for only 2 hours. Looking at their photos of other events, it seems that the group might be much more diverse. If you are looking for a supportive environment where to hone your skills as a performer, this seems to be the place.

     NYC Guitar Group is Great for My Goal(s). It's a Group that's Right for me in starting Guitar. I think that if you're just getting into Guitar & or want to get your "feet wet" in Playing Guitar this is the place to Start Out In (to get performing experiences & jamming w/ other people in a non-judgmental environment, But in a More SUPPORTIVE Environment).

     Emily is a wonderful Meetup Organizer -- like Mary Poppins she is practically perfect in every way! She is so kind, gracious and encouraging to everyone. There could not be a nicer, more nurturing, better person to run this group. The people I've met in the group are also very nice, and there are many excellent musicians in the group. Felipe is a terrific Co-Organizer and a really nice guy. And a guitar virtuoso! Together Emily and Felipe are the perfect leadership team.
