Groove Alert! Not only is it a classic open mic for muscians of all levels of experience to get up onstage and try out something new in front of a supportive audience, but also a sprawling audience-interactive voyage. New friends will be made, enemies will be won round, and all in a handy two hour event with a fifteen minute break for shots.
Doors open 7:00pm
WANT TO PERFORM?
You can chance your luck, turn up and hope there's a free space on the board - or secure your place in advance! Just email:
Between these two perameters of time, your host will summon a storm of encouraging cheer for each and every act on the board to walk into, and with any luck, out from, unharmed. Like the intoxicating uncertainty of walking through a cloud of perfume samples in a department store.
ABOUT THE NIGHT...
And just so you know, although we seem to show a tendancy towards funk soul groove music, we're not fascists! We welcome variety! Just remember to be GROOVE ALERT.
In the capable hands of your host and compére, Elliot Speller-Mason...
...Comedian and jazz pianist; you, and your friends, are guaranteed to be taken through a groovy evening of deceptively controlled chaos. It's sure to be a riot of laughs is what I'm saying.
And depending on the timing of the night with the varying volume of names on the board, to keep things afloat, Elliot may step in and play a couple of soulful songs himself. Yes, he is writing about himself in third person.
