Your chance to be backed by a live band (or perform solo). Or to be in the audience, enjoying the fun! Open Mic: one or two people with or without the house band backing you (your choice). No backing tracks! • Some of the Open Mic spots are available for prebooking (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Music-Performers/pages/Information_for_performers_%28Open_mic%29) by MMP members but you'll need to jump in fast! Use the meetup messaging system to book these spots. • Some of the Open Mic spots are marked specifically for singers and instrumentalists who wish to be backed by the house band (see event details). • Some spots can only be booked on the night (see event details). About the house band: We have carefully chosen musicians who are capable of reading and playing a wide range of music at (literally!) a minute's notice, with no practice and in any key (to suit singers and solo instrumentalists). So, just bring your charts (but note that our music stands are not large enough to hold 6-page charts). Open Jam: if you're not yet ready for the solo limelight, join in the Open Jams. Bring your instrument: trumpet, sackbut, saxophone, guitar, recorder, serpent, harp, lap steel, accordion, harmonica, gamelan, ... even vocals! No booking required. Grab a jam chart (http://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Music-Performers/pages/Jam_charts/) and practise at home, if you like (see links below). Bring the jam chart to the Soirée – we don't have extra copies! Audience: The majority of people attending our events don't actually perform: they are the audience. And they come every month because it's a lot of fun!

If you can’t afford that, the Soirée is our gift to you.

    What we're about

    Melbourne Music Performers is for singers and musicians to perform and audiences to listen to live music in a friendly environment.

    We hold Soirées on two Fridays in each month.

    There's a set programme of entertainment throughout the evening.

    There are also Open Mic segments and Open Jams. Our house band provides backing where required. No rehearsal: just turn up and perform to old friends and new ones. It’s open to all styles of music and performers of all ages.

    So, the Melbourne Music Performers are about:

    LIVE music
    meeting people, and
    having FUN!
