Thursday night open mic – running every Thursday
Come down to TGS HQ on Mare street for an evening of entertainment. We’re not limiting this to music so if you want to come and share poetry, comedy, singing, a talent or anything that you think will entertain, then the stage is yours. Or just come and watch all of this
No need to sign up ahead of the evening, just turn up before 7.45, come speak to us and we’ll put you down for a slot or 2
Time and date:
Every Thursday from 7pm
The Guitar Social
3 Mare street
How signing up works:
Signing up starts at 6.30 and finishes when we reach 15 performers.Signing up needs to be done in person unless otherwise agreed with someone from The Guitar Social under extenuating circumstances
This is done on a first come first served basis.
Members of The Guitar Social (PLEASE LINK TO THE MEMBERSHIP PAGE) can reserve a slot and 3 spots will be held in reserve for members
Performances will be limited to approximately 8 minutes per person, unless it’s a quieter night in which case it will be 8 minutes per person, with an opportunity to do more at the end.
Performances start at 7.45 and end at 10.30
Can I plug a backing tracking into a PA?
Do you have a piano?
No. We do have a synth though. This will need setting up so let us know if you need it and we’ll put you on after a break
Do you have a house guitar?
Sort of. There is one for people to use but it’s very precious to the owner so anyone using it must treat it like a baby seal. There is also a house electric that is slightly less precious
How many mics do you have?
One set up. If you need a second please let us know at the beginning of the night so we can set the other one up
Do you have a drum kit?
Can a full band play?
Yes, so long as you can get yourselves set up in a few minutes
My performance isn’t guitar based. Is that okay?
Yep 🙂 we love variety
How do I become a member?
Can I plug my social media?
Sure, we’ve a lot of performers to get through though so keep it brief 🙂
