Additional questions can be forwarded to [masked] . Music Land is located at 200 Gateway Drive in Bel Air, MD 21014 "Music Land is a full service family owned music store in Bel Air, MD for 45 years. We recently completed a renovation that includes a 1,200 square foot performance area complete with lighting and a stage. We really want to start utilizing the space with live music, so when I learned about BGG, I was very eager to reach out and see if anyone in your group was interested in performing. Our first open mic night will be Wednesday, November 16th; and we will plan to have them every Wednesday from then on. Sign in is at 6:45 and we will start at 7:00 and run performers until 9:00. Set times will be determined on a first come first served basis, each performer will get 2 to 3 songs depending upon time availability. We will provide everything you need as far as microphones and PA amplification, and we can also provide a keyboard and a guitar or bass amp. Please let us know if you need any other accommodations! Other than that the only thing we ask that you please remember Music Land is a family establishment and will be having the open mic during open store hours so song choices should reflect that. We are still working on setting up jam sessions and additional programming." https://www.facebook.com/musiclandbelair/
