OK, so I have been dilly dallying around doing this for ages - time to bite the bullet and make it happen!!
July 29, Saturday, 7:30pm (UTC+1, UK time) *
10 performers will get the chance to play 2 songs each, live on my YouTube channel. I’ll top and tail the show and be the host.
I’m going to use StreamYard, because it works well for me. I know some of the community have reservations about it vs the community open mics, but this is a different vibe… it’ll be a significantly larger audience I suspect!
Performers MUST have played on at least one Community Open Mic!
If you would like to play then please express interest below, if there are more than 10 people interested then I’ll choose based on discussions with the mods - and experience and quality of previous performances!
We’ll do a 30 min soundcheck from 7pm and flick it live at 7:30
So who is in???
So yeah, I don’t post in ages and then drop this bombshell…
That sounds awesome! I would do it if I wasn’t busy that day =[
Question though as I know some community members do this too, normally I’d play with a full backing track (drums, vocal, bass) only sans guitar in a our community open mics. Not something I’d do if we’re playing in a live open mic. Is that okay for this?
OK, I’m sure there are loads of folk already seen this and wondering: “Should I? I’d love to but don’t want to be pushy/bigheaded…”
Throw your name in the hat peeps. Justin can draw names from a hat or ‘curate’ the lineup he wants when he has volunteers.
I’ve already played the two previous Streamyard open mics, so am very happy to take a rain check on this one. The purpose of signing up is to demonstrate willingness/enthusiasm/support (not to mention pushy bigheadedness )
I can offer my usual strum ’n’ sing standard. Nothing fancy. Nothing new I’m afraid…
I’ll put my living room refurb on hold for this, count me in! I have a good one being cooked for a while Second song I will either play something I know already or learn a relatively simple one. Although in a good Community spirit happy to crack on with my refurb plans… I mean happy to step down
Its been a bit for me since I’ve done an open mic. Am I correct all performers are doing 2 songs or is the 2nd optional? Are you looking for more ‘polished’ performers (guitar with vocals and or backing tracks) or is a strumming song good enough?
