Open Mike at our Jazz Cafe

Saturday night following the banquet
Dear First Event Community,

In response to requests from members of our community, this year’s Jazz Cafe folliwing the Saturday evening dinner will include an open mic portion for singers and musicians in our community.

Jazz duo Linda Marks and Terry Smith will return to share their beautiful music at the Jazz Cafe and we will integrate performance space for other singers/musicians.

Open mic performers need to sign up with us prior to the start of the Jazz Cafe, and will be selected to perform by a lottery. You will get to perform one song of your choice. Linda’s Stage Piano and mic will be set up and available if you are a keyboard player. You can bring your own instrument, of course.

Please let us know if you would like to play/sing so we know how many people are interested. Looking forward to sharing song!

Linda Marks and Trace Ellis Open Mic Coordinators
