Potluck and Open Mic at the Sapp's

VERY IMPORTANT! Please be sure to locate and sign up on performance list at Sapp's home if that is what you want to do. This is a separate list from the e-mail list (also at Sapp's). If you are past the tenth position, it may be rather late before you get to perform.

The next open mic event will be at the very cool home of David and Janice Sapp! It is located in the Kenilworth Apartments. These folks have a HUGE place that is ideal for this kind of thing and they also regularly have "house concerts" there. There will also be a potluck dinner starting at 6:30. Open mic starts at 8:00! All levels of musicianship are invited and appreciated. This is a very supportive environment. Jam follows until midnight. Hope you can make it! Please respond ASAP, thanks. Please see link for map to location. it is Unit 109 . You will need to call our host, David and Janice at[masked] to let you in building (it has security locked doors). See you there!

    Thank you Gary for doing such a great job with the sound! I wish I'd remembered to say that last night. Wonderful event as usual. A very warm group of people to hang out with, and the added bonus of good music.

      Jill, I really enjoyed your songs. I'm also in Songsisters and was looking forward to talking with you at Peggy's the next day. Three of us did not get the cancellation message and showed up anyway but Peggy was most gracious and the 4 of us had a wonderful time; most productive. I look forward to meeting you soon, and hearing you again! _Dawn Carol

    I had a wonderful time; everyone was so nice and so talented; ate some yummy food, met some wonderful people, made good connections, had my self esteem boosted, felt very supported, and heard some great music!

    Well, I got there but had to leave before it was over, during John Keenan's first song, in fact. Sorry John, no offense. You sounded great, as did everyone else. Got to meet a few people, and hope to be able to meet more soon. I loved the atmosphere and the vibe...it was really cool. Looking forward to another one!

    This will be my first Amateur Musicians gathering; very excited! I may bring my boyfriend, if that's alright. He's a drummer, among many other things, becoming an awesome sound engineer, and all around great guy. Do I need to bring anything equipment wise, other than my guitar? Linda and Jill, I believe I may see you Sunday too at Songsisters at Peggy's. Linda, could you give me bodhran lessons?! Thanks! Look forward to meeting you all!

    Hi everyone. I would like to come for the open mic at 8 o'clock, but I don't have any material to share. Is it ok to just come and listen, and meet everyone? I really want to get to know more musicians to collaborate with and work up some original music.

    March 5, 2013

    • Jim

      How late does the open mic usually go to? I will need to leave around 10 or so.

      March 8, 2013

    Is it ok to play covers at this open mic?

    March 6, 2013

    • Bill N.

      Thanks. All of my writings are bluegrass gospel so far. Odd in that I've played a lot more contemporary music. I do classic rock, etc.... But is was the new stuff, when I learned it :) . Hope to meet you there.
