An acoustic open mic on the 2nd and 4th Monday of every month, Hosted by Danielle Emberley and DiDi Davis of the Jazz Duo 'Breathless Charm"
Players of all styles of acoustic music and of all skill levels are invited to perform, and lovers of live acoustic music are encouraged to attend and support their local musicians. This is a wonderful sounding room, in the back bar, away from the bustle and noise of the main bar and restaurant. The service is excellent with the waitstaff serving a full menu from the bar and kitchen.
As an acoustic open mic most performers play acoustic instruments. While electric instruments are permitted, amplifiers however, are not. Electric instruments, i.e. electric guitar/bass, keyboard, etc... are plugged directly into the sound system. There is no room for a drum kit, but hand percussion is always welcome.
Most nights are professionally recorded by Melba Studio, with recordings available to performers for a small fee. (no one is recorded if they do not wish to be)
