“ Well this meetup has been going for a number of years. We see anywhere between 20-35 performers regularly. I am very satisfied with the diverse talent we see each month and the friendships that have formed. I would like to see a monthly meetup in Pinellas County. Please forward any suggestions to me. ”

“ a very fertile scene, it seems to me. I had occasionally gone to the open mics at NOLA Cafe 3 or so years ago, and I recognized some of the same performers, and can see the growth :) ”

“ Just signed on so I haven't been to one yet. But what I'd really like to do, is find two other singers to work with me on starting a band. This might also be a good venue for which to find musicians to accompany us! ”

“ There are allot of different types of artists attending and performing. I got the feeling that some of them about two hours in were getting rushed or having their time shortened. I would suggest two songs so everyone gets a chance but that having been said I think the rush was from the venue not the audience or program. While we were there is was very enjoyable. ”

“ Just watching other good people play is an education onto itself. Again, it reinspires me to learn more music, write more, and maybe take up another instrument like bass or mandolin. I used to play a little bass, but when i saw (sorry, i forgot his name) playing, I thought "Damn, I've got to start doing that again." ”
