We have some regular groups coming each month. It’s the place to go once a month to hear new performers & get some great music – It’s not just your regular open mic event. Last few events we had over 70 people attending.
The Ember Lounge is enjoying the activity in the bar and Kevin and I are so pleased to be giving this opportunity to so many people. Its very nice being able to give people a chance to perform with our live band.
This is such a great, fun evening – great music, friendship, happy atmosphere and a great way for others to be involved.
Why not join the Melbourne Music Performers (meetup) group and see for yourself how much fun we have.
Recent events – 26 June, 24th July, 21st August.
Our next event is 25th September.
It’s not just “an Open Mic”. there are plenty of them you can go to. Our event is one where we help the performers, pick the keys for their tunes, help them with their intros – help them if they stray slightly away from the tune – its all about the performance opportunity. Our House Band (Ann, Kevin, Stan, Paul, Tony & Alan) are great musicians, we play almost anything and usually without prior knowledge of what’s going to happen.
I am so lucky to be involved with all these wonderful musicians. We sometimes have others step in for members of the House Band (Frank or Daniel, Mac and this month Simon will play drums). We’ve met some great singers – Rachel, Shannon, Debbie, Suzanna and introduced some of our Jazzy friends; Lynn & Dave, Jan, Annie, Sevil, Juliane, Luella – they’ve all joined the group and enjoyed the fun at the events.
Met some great musicians too.
Nice to be involved with such a supportive group.
