What we're about

Want to be a part of a musician group with a great vibe and no pressure / no judgement? That's us. We are the Philly Musical Achievers

We don't care how well you play, just that you want to join in, have fun and even make some new friends. We don't care if you make mistakes, play the wrong chords, sing out of tune or anything else, just show up and do the best you can! This formula has worked incredibly well over the past 5 1/2 years. Many strong friendships have been made, bands have formed and many musicians who did not know each other prior to joining this group have shared the stage together during open mics, both at our meet ups and at other venues!

Our meetups are sometimes a bit mellow, sometimes chaotic and everything in between, but we like it that way! It is like a party with a bunch of cool musicians! We have an awesomely diverse membership and cover just about every genre of music.

Come give us a try! We look forward to meeting you!

Fortnightly West Philly Song Circle / Open Mic!

Gojjos Ethiopian Restaurant

• What we do First 30 minutes or so - tune up / warm up / intros / chit chat / order refreshments Next is our Song Circle - pick song at your turn (please make it a song that you know how to play) or skip if you want. We will post the lyrics and chords on the 60" screen for all to follow! We will take a break around 6:30, but that may change depending on how many performers we will have for the open mic. ***NOTE*** Only the first 20 people who reserve a performance spot by answering the question when they RSVP are guaranteed an open mic slot. We will fit more in if there is time. After our break, we will start the open mic. Please keep your turn to two songs so we can fit everyone in in a timely manner. Also, when it's not your turn, keep talking to a low level and please watch and support the other performers. Our goals with this group are to improve our playing / experience playing with others / meet other musicians / have a GREAT TIME!!! • What to bring Bring your instrument, a small amp if you are playing electric (but if only playing electric for the open mic, we can run you straight into the PA), some percussion is always fun and of course, your positive, fun attitudes! • Important to know Please be respectful of others when it is their turn. Spend a little money! The room we use is meant to be rented out and the owner has never charged us to use it (because, of course, we are awesome!). If you are playing during the open mic, please try to stay for the other performers and support them. We understand that this cannot always be done, so we ask that you try.
