The O I C Studios Open Mic event contains content suitable for mature audiences only. We ask that young children are kept at home. Thank you for your understanding.
Participants wishing to perform please arrive 30 minutes before the start of the event to sign up. A clipboard will be provided for you to supply your name and what it is you will be performing, music, spoken word, etc.
To ensure variety throughout the evening’s program, the MC will determine the order in which participants will perform at the event.
You can perform two selections per turn. You may have another turn if there is time.
You may play covers or your own original material.
If there are more than two musicians in your band, you will be required to contact James in advance of the event. This will give us time to accommodate for the extra space needed.
We will provide cables, microphones and a mic stand. If you require anything else, please bring it with you. Seating will sometimes be limited so feel free to bring your own chair.
We will have a merchandise table set up so feel free to bring your music, (cds,) you’d like to sell.
You are expected to be ready to perform when called upon, for instance, instruments tuned ahead of time.
Each event will be recorded live and individual performances will be included in our O I C Studios Open Mic Podcast on YouTube
This will be a great opportunity for artists seeking additional exposure. If you rather not have your performance uploaded, please let us know.
We strongly embrace our constitutional right to free speech. However, limit those things which may be considered obscene, vulgar or risque to a minimum. In other words, don’t overdo it! And as always, be mindful of your audience.
We thank you for abiding by these guidelines. Your understanding and cooperation help to ensure that everyone is given an equitable amount of time.
Please do not hesitate to call James if you have any questions or concerns.
