Sing along or dance to your friends performing and/or join us on stage, at the new Open Mic venue in Beaverton. There's no cover charge, it's free! The first 2 hours are reserved exclusively for Meetup members on a first-come-first-served basis, and you can reserve a slot to sing/perform in advance by sending a message to Dave G. The slots/sets are 15 to 20 minutes depending on demand, and the final itinerary will be posted here a few days before the event.
SINGERS: Come up and singalong with the band. We'll have a band playing popular songs for a couple of sets, with printed lyrics for up to 6 singers at three mics. As it's close to St Valentines Day, our theme will be "love songs". Let us know your favorites and we'll do our best to include them. There're some example songs at: http://gallaghergenes.com/set3.html
SOLOISTS: Let us know in advance if you want the band to provide backing so we can prepare.
MUSICIANS: Bring your own instruments, or we can loan you a guitar and/or keyboard.
EVERYONE: Come listen to your friends perform, and dance and/or sing along.
