OPEN MIC 010 – Call For Interest
It’s just 48 hours after JGC Open Mic IX - Open Mic IX Recording & After Show Chat - and every one involved is no doubt still buzzing, while the excitement, of what could have been one of our best shows yet, still lingers.
So, it sounds like a good time to extend an invitation to all of the Community, to come and join the next show JGC Open Mic X - as performers or members of the audience alike.
Anyone interested in taking part, in either capacity, should read the new Justin Guitar Community Open Mic events – How They Work, Access & Eligibility guide.
With the growing interest and greater visibility of the events, we have had to set some new criteria for running the shows, which will be self-explanatory on reading the guide. So please take the time to do so, before posting your request to attend. Performers, please ensure you meet the Performer Criteria before requesting a slot.
JGC Open Mic X will be held on Saturday the 20th August.
Invitations to performers will be open until Monday 25th July. At which point, the organizers will identify the appropriate start time based on time zones, as described in the Justin Guitar Community Open Mic events – How They Work, Access & Eligibility guide.
Please note there will be a maximum of 22 performers. So, if you have played at the recent Open Mics, please give consideration to those Community members who may be stepping up to the plate for the first time.
Performer applications will NOT be confirmed until after entries have been closed. This will still give Performers 4 weeks to prepare for the show. So please do not expect immediate confirmation.
Note : I will post a list of Performers on or around Monday 25th July.
There are no limitations on the Audience numbers and I will confirm such requests, as they are made. An Audience List will also be published at the same time as the Performer List and will be updated, as further requests are received up and until the weekend of the show.
As usual updates will follow.
Please let me know if you are interested as either a performer or audience member and ensure you state your time zone in UTC.
(For reference - Time Zone Map)

Finally, as stated in the Justin Guitar Community Open Mic events – How They Work, Access & Eligibility guide, a link to the Zoom meeting, will be sent to both Performers and Audience Member approximately one week before the event, by direct message.
Thank you for your support.
OM X will commence at 19:00 UTC Saturday 20th August 2022.
