One Mic Stand

Posted By Ava Gaudet on January 30th, 2012

I’m so excited to be hosting ONE MIC STAND, the very FIRST open mic night at Whiskey Blue LA! Our first night is this THURSDAY, February 2nd! Here is some info and a few guidelines for how the night will go…. lets have some fun and make some MUSIC!!!

GUIDELINES:
Sign Up:
You must SIGN UP to perform! You can contact me via email or Facebook to put your name on the list, OR you can sign up when you get there. The sign up list is FIRST COME FIRST SERVE, and that includes email sign ups… this means, if you are the FIRST one to email me, you are FIRST on the list and so on… for this reason its it’s best that you get there at 7:45/8pm SHARP to see where you are on the list! If you are not there when you’re called, I’ll call the next person…if you come late you are free to sign up again at the end of the list and I will get to you if I can!

Performance Time:
When it’s your time to shine, you are allowed 2 SONGS OR 10 MINUTES, whichever comes first! This is to give you a fair amount of time to do yo’ thang, but ALSO leave enough time for everyone else to get their shot to perform too. I will be strict with this. :/

Backline and Equipment info:
This is an ACOUSTIC open mic night. We do NOT have a drum kit, and we do not have enough gear to support an entire band. We DO have a keyboard available to use, mics, and amps for guitarists.

Your Host:
I will be your HOST for the night! That means that I will be the one minding the sign-up list, calling up our performers, and keeping track of our 2-songs-or-10-minutes rule. It ALSO means that I will be doing a few songs (with my friend David Mendoza on Keys) to warm up the crowd at the beginning of the night. After our short set of tunes, I turn the night over to YOU!

Parking, Drinks, and The W Hotel:
There is NO cover for this event BUT we encourage you to DRINK, EAT, BE MERRY (and TIP your servers & bartenders!! :D ) We will have drink & food specials as well as discounted VALET PARKING!

PLEASE feel free to contact me with questions, and contact me if you want to SIGN UP to perform! ava@avagaudet.com

PLEASE forward to your friends! The more people we have involved the more likely it is that this night will continue! Let’s make some MUSIC!!!!!

    Hey – just wanted to thank you guys again for a great night. I’ve been all over L.A. and there are few of these open mics that are worth going back to. Because you are both such great and serious performers, you know how to offer a quality experience to the performers that show up. It’s a lot of work and hassle, but I really appreciate the cordiality and support. This is a “class” act.

    Regards,

    Just Vinny
