Open Mic

HOW IT WORKS

Moonlight’s Open Mic Series is held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the Month. The admission is $5 for both audience and performer. Doors open at 6:45 – our roster holds 12 per night and signup closes at 7:20 — we’ll start at 7:30 – and go in order of a random draw 1 – 12 – each performer will have the chance to perform 2 songs within 10 – 12 mins – if time allows we’ll ask the performer to do 3rd songs. A prize pot of up to $50 will be awarded to the one with the highest score — Points are decided by your fellow contestants – and we ask that they score based on originality, musicianship, professionalism, and audience response — the winner will earn a spot in the Grand Playoff.

 

There are 2 series in a calendar year, each series runs for 6 months with a total of 2 grand prize winners –12 winners per series will earn a chance to compete for the prize of studio time with Bud Brown at Higher Ground Studios. The Grand Playoff winners will be given the opportunity to perform live at select Bluff Park Community events  — along with a spot on The Moonlight Calendar. The Winter Series Grand Playoff is currently scheduled for June 19, 2017 — The Summer Series will start in July 2017 — with the Grand Playoff held in January 2018.

To keep it fair, points are only awarded up to a DUO but we welcome your TRIO (if there’s room on the roster) and consider it an added bonus to the night. We do prefer instruments that are easily connected through the house sound system.

 It’s not all about the prize — Our goal is to offer a comfortable place for you to share your originals in front of a live audience — It’s all about the music
