I have been running open mics for quite a while now, providing good gear, good support and a place to make your first appearance, or for pros to blow off steam and have a good night. This new open mic will be no exception.

It will be a place where the younger musos can learn and more experienced can show new tricks, solos or bands, covers or originals, all genres.

A full PA and sound desk will be provided, mics and stands, some instruments available (guitar, drums, bass- no backline though), but bring yours if you can. We will probably start off more acoustic, but the sky's the limit!

Big stage, lights, and lots of room to bring your friends. This could be a good place to invite potential customers to check out your band, or just show off to your pals.

Underage players must be accompanied by their parents (not just older friends or guardians please).

First drink on the house for every playing guest! More promotions to come as we gain sponsors.

On the last Wednesday of the month we will have a show case (starting on Wed 25th May). This means that instead of an ordinary open mic, we will have a performance night of chosen bands/performers who are gig-ready, and we will invite bar managers, agents, promoters etc so that we can show that Christchurch live music is shaken, but most certainly alive!

On the first night it will be a first come first serve basis, and as we grow into the space, artists can book a spot, or whatever works best.

If you are a gigging muso and are a bit lost because of the earthquake, come down for a chat, and a jam, and tell uncle Willie all about it!
